You tied the string on the last balloon, frosted the last cupcake, and put out the last of the party gifts. All the hard work, creativity and of course planning has paid off. The guests are about to arrive and there is one last thing to do. No, not checking your lip gloss in the mirror, I’m talking about taking photographs. Before the guests arrive pull out your camera and take a few close-ups of all the details of your party so you can show off your hard work for years to come.
I love photographing parties. This party was especially fun because it was my friend’s daughter’s very 1st birthday. I know how hard it is to play host and photograph your own party, so I was happy to help out my friend. Here are a few things to keep in mind at your next party to make sure you capture all the memories and the fun.
I’m so glad that I was able to photograph baby Blakeley’s 1st birthday party. Without the photos of the handmade garland, gift bags for the kids and personalized bib, Blakeley would never have known how much work her mom put into her 1st birthday.
From magical marshmallow pops, fairy cakes, face painting and a real live fairy, Mia Bella’s fairy themed birthday party was every little girls fairytale dream come true! It was so much fun to be able to join the Gordon family for this special day to document all the sweet little fun moments. And talk about the details! This party was full of pink fairy details. Stepping into their backyard was like stepping into a fairy wonderland with butterfly wings and glitter absolutely everywhere. I’m so grateful to have been able to capture all the joy and happiness of this special day!
