Ever since we had our first daughter, we have set family birthday traditions for the kids. When a daughter turns 6, we don’t hold a birthday party. Instead, we hold a 6th birthday pictorial.

Having Family Birthday Traditions

Birthdays for the kids are a big deal for our family. I really plan out something for them. It doesn’t have to be expensive or a big birthday bash.

The important thing is that it has a theme and they have a birthday cake with a candle to blow. And of course, there should be pictures. Those memories captured will remind them of the fun times they’ve had in their childhood.

Each year, we do something. It can be a birthday party or an activity. Or, we go together on a family travel, like Shawna’s 9th Birthday Adventure in Baguio City.

What we try to make sure is, we give to Shane what we have given to Shawna. It’s our little way of telling them that we are treating them fairly, if not equally. No favoritism. It will keep us from answering difficult questions later.

In succeeding blog posts, I will write about our annual birthday traditions.

The Kids’ 6th Birthday Pictorial

When Shawna turned six years old four years ago, we held a 6th Birthday pictorial at Bacolod Cupcake Cafe. We bought her a new dress that was on sale and then we asked BCC to make a cake and cupcakes for her. Additionally, we bought a pink number 6 foil balloon. The color matched her dress.

Tito Ricco of BCC was kind enough to help us with the set up and we had a nice family pictorial there.

Shane is about to blow the candles on her six cupcakes.

And now it is Shane’s turn. Since she’s crazy about unicorns, she wanted to have a unicorn cake, unicorn cupcakes, and of course, unicorn balloons. She got everything that she wanted.

Unicorn Onesies

Shane has been obsessed with unicorns — toys, accessories, and the like. Although we don’t normally buy her everything that she wants, she now has quite a collection of unicorns.

It was only several months ago since we bought these unicorn costumes. We only intended to buy one for Shane but Achi asked for one, too. But now, Achi Shawna looks awkward wearing it. haha In just a few months, she is now acting like a tween.

Several months ago, the SM Store had a super sale. We got a lot of stuff at half the price. Then we found unicorn onesies. They were not very expensive and had a 10% discount. It also had a further reduction of 10% if you had an SM Advantage Card.

We took the opportunity to buy the unicorn onesies for the kids. They love to play dress up and we just let them. Pretend play stimulates their creativity and we encourage that. So when there’s a good sale, we buy costumes for kids.

DIY Pictorial

By the way, I just want to mention that this is a DIY pictorial. We have our own mirrorless camera and tripod and we just use natural lighting.

Honestly, we just want to remember and celebrate the milestone but we don’t want to spend a lot. That’s because, we have decided to give them a birthday party where we invite friends on their 7th birthday. We did that for Shawna when she had her Belle themed party. It’s not grand, but it was a party with invited guests, so we had to set aside a big chunk of the family budget for that.

More Pictures

So anyway, I am sharing pictures here of both girls for their 6th birthday pictorial. And my, have they grown! Pretty soon, we will have teenagers and I am not sure if we are ready for pubescence to hit us. hehe

Shawna’s 6th birthday pictorial also at Bacolod Cupcake Cafe. This was in March 2015. Shane was still a toddler back then. The theme is simply Black Pink and butterflies.

For now, we are spending more time with them, talking to them, and not just their homeschooling lessons. This period will not last long and it won’t be long till they are no longer going to be dependent on us. For now, we have this set up and we will enjoy it. Quality time as much as we can.

Happy 6th Birthday, Shane!

      Yeah, we are all about fairness in the family. While we may not give them the same, but we try to equal them for both kids.

    1. The unicorn onesies are truly love. Our girls are into costumes and pretend play. So this was perfect for them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Though our eldest feels awkward already. Pre-teen coming soon! haha

  6. This is such a magical and memorable unicorn photo shoot for a 6 year old. Well done on making it so unicorn perfect for a perfect little girl. <3

  9. How I wish to get this motif when I was young. The props and party decors look colorful and way too adorable. The unicorn cake looks fantastic also.

    1. I know right? I would have loved this, too, if I was still a kid. But then, who’s really stopping us from having unicorn themed birthday parties in our grown up years, right? hahaha Let’s do it!
