When I came up with the idea of a balloon backdrop, I intended for it to be a fun place to take photos and capture the spirit of the joint birthday party. If nobody else wanted to take party pictures, I knew I would at least get good use out of it.
When it came time to plan Anabelle and Betty’s birthday party, I decided that instead of having a fancy theme of my choosing (I was thinking tea party almost the entire year leading up to this party!), I wanted to go a more traditional route. I wanted to fill the party with things that I thought Anabelle would love, like pom-poms, party hats, sprinkles, balloons, and lots of colors! It was going to be a child’s dream come true!
Photographing your kid’s birthday party can be a bit overwhelming. You don’t want to forget to document the important moments. However, you also don’t want to document every single detail only to be behind the camera the whole time, and miss out on actually enjoying the party yourself.
