This adorable birthday party doubled as a going away party for this family who moved to the east coast shortly after. It was so fun to see how much the parents hugged each other and how all the kids were so excited to see each other. I really love photographing birthdays because they are all so different. It's fun to see what kids get excited about. In this case it was definitely the face painting. It's also great to jump into a party for even a quick bit to capture memories. Birthday party photos don't have to be 2 hours. It can be catered to whatever you're looking for!
