Emma’s 30th Birthday Party

A party with a Barbie and Ken theme

A little while ago I was asked if I would like to photograph a themed birthday party.   Needless to say I jumped at the chance as themed parties can be so much fun.   Emma had just turned 30 so that special occasion had to be marked with a big event.

Emma has always had a bit of a Barbie thing, so I knew that there was going to be an awful lot of pink clothing involved.   I wasn’t to be disappointed as nearly everyone entered into the spirit of the evening.

The evening started with Emma’s arrival in a white Range Rover, and she was dressed in a pink ballgown.  Guests arrived rapidly, and I manged to get some formal shots of them in the foyer.  After that they moved to the function room for music, dancing, food and drink.   I was able to move around freely after everyone had arrived so candid shots were the order of the day.

Emma had invited a lot of family and friends, so it was always going to be a very social night.   Things became a little less formal as the night wore on as can be Emma-5994 Emma-6010 Emma-6063seen from the selection of pictures below.   The bar was doing a roaring trade and that made my job a little bit easier as inhibitions fell away.  It’s always good to be surrounded by people who want to have their picture taken!

The nature of the shoot means that I can’t provide links to the gallery for this shoot, but I am able to add a selection of shots from the night on this blog.   Emma was very kind in giving me permission to do so.
