When we are at a birthday party everyone wants to get birthday pictures. Pictures of the guest of honor are number one of everyone’s list. But there are other pictures you will want to get so you can put together an album and see how the wonderful day played out.
If you are interested in creating an album of the day, you will not want to forget any pictures. Having a list of pictures to take during the party will help you not forget any. You can make this list up yourself writing down pictures you don’t want to forget or you can use the one we have put together for you and add to it names of family members or friends that you want to get pictures of.
o …the decorations before guests arrive
o …guests as they arrive
o …the guest of honor as he/she arrives
o …guests giving their birthday wishes to the b-day person
o …guests and celebrator mingling
o …cake before being cut
o …guest of honor cutting cake
o …cake being given out
o …birthday boy/girl opening presents
o …family and friends with guest of honor (you should add names of people you want pictures with here)
o …guest of honor thanking guests (if speech is given, pics of that too)
o …celebrator saying goodbye to guests.
Depending on the type of party and what is planned you will want to also add in pictures of entertainment, toasts, guests and celebrator playing games, of course only if they are applicable. Anything planned especially for the party should have pictures taken too.
We hope this information on taking pictures at a birthday party has been helpful in showing you what pictures should be taken if you want to create a play by play album of the party. An album is such a nice way to look back and remember a great day! Don’t forget when creating your album to add in some quotes or wishes from the guests at the party or even a birthday poem or birthday saying. If someone gave a toast or read out a poem made specifically for the guest of honor, make sure that is added in too!
