I have been getting more and more requests lately to photograph events such as birthday parties and surprise parties. I have really enjoyed myself when I do them. Kinda reminds me of a wedding reception, only minus the pretty lady in the white dress. 🙂 So as an FYI to everyone, if you need someone to come photograph your upcoming event, I am charging (for now) $100 per hour of my time, plus you get all the proof images on CD. Then if there is one particular shot you want retouched and printed, my regular print prices will apply.
So today I had the privilege of being there to capture Owen’s first birthday. This little guy was too cute! Before the guests arrived, we did a quick "1 year" portrait session in his beautiful nursery.
Then I got some detail shots of the cake and party favors. (The cake was an amazing creation by Andrea Reed, owner of SweetCakes. Be sure to check out her online gallery!)
And last but not least, the birthday boy dug in! I really don’t think he knew what to make of this whole experience. Mom said he doesn’t really like to be messy. Notice his face in the shot on the right. Funny!
