I was invited to Millie’s 2nd birthday party and Connor’s 5th birthday party the other day in the New Forest for a family BBQ. It was such a lovely sunny day. The the kids were playing on a water slide, I was rather jealous as it was so warm. I took along my camera to document the birthday celebration shared by 4 generations of family. There were lots of presents, games and a fantastic dual birthday cake. We also arranged a few family portraits after the BBQ.
Patience is always required to photograph kids, but allowing them to play and have fun is the best way to capture the real personalities and all the cuteness.
