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 seen 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.
I am always available for family shoots, as well as portraits and weddings. Contact me by clicking here if you would like to discuss an upcoming event.
