It was Charlie’s 9th birthday, and she wanted to have a fun and memorable party with her girls! Charlie is a sweet girl with a little bit of a sassy side, so we decided on spending the day making a music video to Sia’s “Cheap Thrills”! She and her 4 best friends had a blast, and we were so excited to watch the final product!
Charlie’s Coldwater Canyon In-Home Party
Charlie’s birthday party was held at her family’s amazing home up Coldwater Canyon. It might have been a rare rainy day in LA, but it was the perfect setting for spending the day filming! We started by setting up Charlie’s room as Girls Only HQ to keep her younger brother and his friends from shooting us with laser guns. The girls loved spending the day away from the boys and focusing on girly things! Then we got decked out in rock star gear provided by us (skirts, shirts, sequin hats, netted gloves, leg warmers, scarves, and necklaces). Charlie and her friends looked super cute after they found the perfect outfits and accessories! Then we got camera-ready with makeup and hair color! They loved this, and it was so fun watching the girls have a blast while getting pampered.
One of our instructors did personalized choreography and another was director of photography. The girls learned some specific choreography and then we all got creative and came up with fun ideas for filming! There was a fashion show, some hula hooping, lots of attitude and laughs. We also used fun props (provided by us) like inflatable guitars, a boom box, and tinsel wands. All the girls got a glitter microphone to keep! Charlie will get an edited copy of her music video to share with her friends and watch over and over! Happy birthday to this sweet girl!
