Elk Grove Village Carousel Room 1st Birthday Party/Danielle Hardesty Events

August 2019 was full of firsts for Danielle Hardesty Photography.

I’m excited to finally begin sharing all that happened with you!

First up, this adorable first birthday party at the Elk Grove Village Park District, complete with a real indoor carousel! The room had floor to ceiling windows on 60% of the walls so the natural light was a dream!

Sweet little “E” was turning one and the love and joy of having her in their lives was evident on the faces of every family and friend that attended. The kids had tons of fun on the carousel and when they need a little break from the motion, they enjoyed the play room complete with ball pits, tunnels, slides and more!

E’s mom put so much work and effort into each little detail that made the day even more special than it already was. Look at the some of the sweet details!

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet E!

You are loved, cherished and bring immense joy to those around you!

Thank you for choosing me to capture this special moment in the life of your family!
