One of the best parts of working with families is getting to witness the children growing up, at their birthday parties and annual portrait sessions. Last year I met Shanaya and her family for the first time at her first birthday party, so it was a real pleasure to see her again one year later when I was the photographer at her second birthday party.

This time the party was at Purple Dragon in Chelsea, with entertainment, lunch, and lots and toys to play with afterwards! Sometimes I miss being a kid again – but I like to think I’ll always have that sense of childish glee in my heart!

If you like my style of event photography and would like to know more, you can find all the details right here.
