This birthday shoot changed my photography. I said yes to take this client’s work because of his daughter, who I was the second shooter for her wedding. Since her beautiful wedding and their experience with my photography, they book me for their family events. And I am very happy that they did this time also.
This is the first time I shoot a 70th birthday event. And I didn’t know much how I could take a portrait of the birthday baby today. but I went with what I felt right. After taking some indoor shots and details. I took them as a couple out for a small shoot. I just told them to be on some places so that I could check the lighting and stuff and talked with them.
After 4 to 5 minutes I was done, and they were asking are we gonna take images or this is not a good location. I smiled and said. I got all the shots I needed and showed some images back of my camera and they were amazed.
And I showed their daughter some images as well on camera, and the words she told.
“Jeg har aldri sett them smile slikt” That is what makes me proud and authentic. And very happy that I could deliver them images with pride!
I have never been happier after an event shoot, And I am very thankful for getting this kind of shoot.
