It's no secret that lifestyle and documentary photography is my jam. I was so thrilled to photograph this sweet boy's first birthday party. His mama had obviously put a lot of thought and effort into putting it all together. There were so many friends and family members there and everyone really enjoyed the celebration! Since mama had hired a photographer, she didn't have to worry about taking photos of all the guests who were there or capturing those smash cake moments. She was able to chat with her friends and family, eat lunch, and attend to any hostessing needs while I did the documenting for her. It was a good reminder to me that perhaps I should follow suit and get help documenting some of our own family events!
