If you only want the close family to participate and a couple of close friends, you can create a themed photoshoot in your backyard. But if you want to invite a larger group, why not take the party to a park! And don’t forget that winter photos are very nice too!

Sister fun!

-Pick a location. Whether you stay home or go to a park, make sure the setting is perfect for your child’s birthday party photoshoot.

-Choose a theme. If your child is into superheroes, pirates, princesses or any other theme, let that guide your decorations and props.

-Get creative with the costumes and decorations and have your child participate in the preparations. This will make the photoshoot even more special for them.

-Make sure you have enough time to take photos of all the guests. It’s no fun if some people have to leave before the party is over!

-Make a cake that match with the theme and take photos of your child and friends around it wearing their costumes.

-Take lots of photos! You’ll want to have a record of this special birthday. And don’t forget to send copies to the birthday child’s friends!

The bond between children and their dogs is powerful!

 

 

 

The bond between children and their dogs is powerful!  My hope is that throughout this photography project,  you can see how special the bond is between them…

I love photographing children! I love telling stories with my images. I become a child myself and get completely immersed in an imaginary world of dreams and fantasy that I remember living in as a child….when life was my playground and anything was possible. Remember those days? I think I’m still living in that world!

When I work with children, I always try to get a sense of their world. What are they interested in? What makes them laugh? What do they like to do for fun? For me, it’s all about creating an image that tells a story and capturing an emotion. For this project, the children were thrilled when they found out the story was going to be about them and their best friend! I truly enjoyed learning about why their dog is so special to them. There is nothing like the bond between children and their dog. In most cases, that relationship is unbreakable. I think these photos are a testament to the power of that love.

I hope you enjoy looking through these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!
