Parties and events are always such a buzz for a photographer! It is a pleasure to watch and capture children having a ball, being themselves, laughing and running around covered in cake 🙂 Parties are a perfect opportunity to observe children in their many expressions and interactions, and hiring a professional birthday party photographer to shoot the event is the ideal way to capture those memories in style and keep them for posterity.
It was not the first time I’d photographed Mr C. This time, rather than exploring Dinton Pastures Country Park, we stayed in for a big party celebration! C’s friends joined him to celebrate his 5th birthday party on this beautiful summery day. I arrived a little before everyone else, and caught a chance to photograph C opening his family presents! We also had the chance to take some informal family portraits of him with his Mum and Dad.
C’s parents created the loveliest, most colourful party setting in the back garden of their cottage in Wokingham, Berkshire with plenty of play activities and delicious food for everyone. All the children had a fantastic couple of hours. The biggest laughs were heard when Brekk the magician made an appearance with his magic and balloons show – C and his friends were mesmerised by his hilarious tricks. And of course, that EPIC Thomas birthday cake, which tasted even better than it looked!
Happy birthday little guy – I had a wonderful time photographing your birthday party. Here are a few of my favourites from the day. Enjoy!
