Sunday, I photographed my very first party..a birthday party! I have never realized how hard photo journalism really was! There was lot of rowdy kids ( which weren’t filled up with sugar yet! It was pure hyperness!) running around all over the place wanting me to take pictures of their “face painting”. I was constantly in the birthday girls face trying to make her laugh. She had just turned one year old, and was a very serious baby for her age. I could make the silliest face, or the weirdest sound, but I constantly failed to get her to smile that “two-tooth’ smile of hers.
The smile came eventually when the balloon-man showed up with a Dora balloon. She absolutely loved it! I had taken the balloon and acted like Dora was giving her a kiss on the cheek, and what-do-you-know, she busted out laughing like it was so hilarious!I would have never thought that a baby can laugh so hard!
Anyways, This baby that I’m talking about is my little cousin, Laya. She is a really sweet girl and I love her so…much! Here are a couple of photos of her and her parents.
