A Minnie Mouse Birthday

Would you believe that Minnie Mouse is actually my mother?! Well, she is! And she made that insanely incredible costume!

My niece was celebrating her 2nd birthday, and we all headed to the playground for a Minnie Mouse themed party. Kids were going absolutely bonkers for Minnie and I felt like a paparazzo, following Minnie and the Birthday Girl around the playground!

Food isn't my favorite subject to shoot (unless it's a sweet confection!) - but I do recommend taking photos of party food before guest arrive and start noshing. Plus, you can play around with the arrangement and set up the shot to create the most visual interest.

Photos where we don't see someone's face can often help tell a story or provide a little extra drama. For example, Summer marching off with the birthday balloons totally fits her independent personality. And just seeing Camden's pink hair bow instead of her face, and her tiny hand show a dainty little girl (who, by the way, took a lifetime to eat that cookie!)

Next time you're taking photos of little ones, try focusing on something other than the face and see what happens!

... I have a hankering for a cookie right about now!
