I really had a great time photographing this birthday party at The Woodlands park in Riverplace. The Bronson’s are fortunate because big sister Lexi’s & little bro Z’s birthdays are close enough together that they made it a joint party for both of them. There was a children’s performance group that sang, Mr. Johnny & Ms. Sharon really kept the kids entertained along with the bouncy house and a treasure hunt I think this party was a big hit! When I look at these pics I can still hear Lexi’s sweet giggles….I SO enjoyed watching her grab her daddy’s hand and the way she looked adoringly to her mom. Baby bro Z, seemed so laid back, he flirted like a champ with the camera and really LOVED his cupcake!
I really love photographing parties and other occasions where I get to be a fly on the wall and just shoot with the total photojournalistic approach. Most of my sessions with families are “lifestyle” portraits, where there isn’t a ton of posing going on and I focus on capturing the families natural interactions with each other, but this kind of shooting at a birthday party is totally off the cuff….there is no time for holding still for pics….umm…hello, there is a bouncy house and cake!! I’m just trying to catch a shot without them even knowing and it can be a challenge, but it is SO much fun! I hope that the Bronson’s liked the pictures of the party and that they will look back and remember how much fun this birthday was.
