Birthday Photo Tips

Set the Scene

Photo by Jason Wilde

Take a few moments to capture details that make the day special. Snap photos of the cake (before and after it has been shared), the still-wrapped presents, and party attendees. Remember to mix detail shots with overall scene setters, and consider an impromptu group shot or a "mug shot" of each partygoer. Before the big day, take photos of the party preparations -- making the cake, wrapping presents, blowing up balloons. These images enrich your story.
