Anaya's 3rd Birthday Party

Here are some photos from Anaya's 3rd birthday party. 

The birthday family!

It was a lovely day, the sun was shining and there was lots of cake.  

Photographing children can be challenging but generally things are a lot easier at parties.  Children at parties are excited, hyper, happy and smiling.  There are times when the high turns into a low but these are usually short lived.  Unfortunately, the lows usually happen at key moments and usually because a child is ordered to smile or look at the camera.

I wrote a post a previously with a few tips about how to take great photos of children.

Asking a child to make a funny face always produces a great photograph!

Children have the innate ability to amuse each other!

You simply cannot beat birthday cake!
