I’d forgotten how much fun these are! I don’t do a lot of them until the holiday season starts getting close, so I forget what I like about them. I love the fun atmosphere of when a group of friends and families get together. I love the work in it. That sounds really weird, especially because when I’m done I feel like I’ve run a marathon, but I love the pace of it. Shooting is my absolute FAVORITE part of being a photographer (trust me, there’s a LOT more to it than just snapping pics!) and in a portrait party setting where you spend a few hours with several different families and kids, it’s just a rush!
I really think that everyone involved loves the parties, too! The kids pick up on the fun atmosphere. Parents love that it’s a quick, inexpensive session and that there is usually food involved. And the person who hosts it loves it because they get some great freebies and credits towards their own photos!
I just finished my first portrait party of the season. I’m actually uploading the photos to my computer now. It was a blast and I can’t wait to share some of my favorites with you!
