To help capture and tell the story of the night, here are some tips and tricks to capture the best shots during the celebrations.

1. Candid Moments

Take some stress off yourself, the best photo is often the one you capture when everyone is enjoying the celebration and #notposing. Keep your camera with you and be ready to snap the shot, even if the moment isn’t picture perfect.




2. In Action

Children are full of enthusiasm and joy, especially on their birthday. Keep an eye on them and take photos while they are playing with their friends.

The trick to click action shots is to focus the lens & click many pictures to get the best one.



3. Zoom in

With all of the celebrating going on around you sometimes it is hard to stop, take a pause, and appreciate the little moments. Be sure to stop and capture the details.


4. Make A Wish

Don’t be afraid to get down on their level or capture it from overhead – this will make sure you don’t miss any messy moments.
