Children’s birthday party photography in London

Natural photos for the family to treasure

After going to all the effort of organising a birthday party for your little one, what with sorting the cake and arranging the entertainment and sending the invites and getting the place ready, it would be a shame to spend it all stuck behind your own camera taking photographs the whole time. And that’s where I come in!

I love making albums full of real moments and those little details that make the day special, all the excitement and tears and torn wrapping paper, so that you’re free to enjoy it all on the day. Then you’ll be able to relive all your own memories whenever you like, and once your children are all grown up and can hardly remember being so young they’ll love it too. It’ll come in especially handy on their 18th birthday, or their wedding day!

How it works

Step 1 – reserve the date

Use the contact form below to send me some details about your party and we’ll have a wee chat about everything by email, phone or Skype. When you’re happy I’m the photographer for you I’ll send you a link to my online booking system and that’s one more thing ticked off your To Do List.

Step 2 – enjoy your party!

I’ll arrive early to say hello and then you can pretty much leave me to it. No need for you and your family to keep smiling down the lens, just relax and enjoy all the fun, games and organised chaos of the party – I’ve got it covered!

Step 3 – your gallery & photofilm

Editing and processing your photos till they’re ready to print takes one to two weeks. First I’ll send you a Photofilm of the best bits via Facebook or my website, and then your full gallery of finished photographs will be online and ready to share with all your family and friends!

Step 4 – your album & archive

From the gallery you can choose your favourites to have made into a Hardback Storybook, then I’ll design a first draft and we’ll get it looking just right before printing. Finally, every package includes all the photos in your album as a web-ready digital archive.

“Owen is a wonderfully discrete photographer who always manages to capture the instant. The pictures are fun and different and beautiful … and what a relief not to have to worry about taking pictures on the night! You don’t notice him much but Owen is there and in charge … and you can relax and enjoy!”Dominique | Birthday party in Notting Hill
