Be in the Child’s World.
1. Children is said to be one of the most difficult portraits to capture, and how to make them stop moving will be another challenge of yours. One of the best way to freeze that perfect moment is to let them interact with  your camera.  Talk to them, ask some questions and while they answers it let their eyes communicate with you.

2. Make them laugh, play with them to capture beautiful shots of their candid.

Get to your child’s perspective.
1. Prevent shooting from your normal height. Go down to the child’s level.
2. Create Series shot of them receiving gifts from other individual children.

The Right Moment.

1. The MUST NOT MISS shot:
– The Cake Shot

– Make a wish shot
– Birthday Songs shot
– Cake cutting shot
– Family Group Portrait with the Cake

If you don’t want to miss yourself in the shot, you’ll probably need someone to help you with the clicking or use a Tripod with self-timer mode, or even better a remote.

2. The BEST NOT TO MISS shot:
– Children playing or activities candid

– The Eating mess (especially on the mouth, sometimes can be quite adorable)

– Don’t forget about the Parents who came to the Party too. Have some Selfies with them, if not get a Tripod & self-timer mode to help you.

– Last but not least,  Aftermath Cake Cutting Shot.

– If you’re using Smart phones to shoot, remember the last step is to source for a good App for some quick photo edits.
