To bring a camera or not? I struggle with the balance. For example, you throw a shower for a good friend. You work so hard to put together decor, food, activities and a guestlist so you want to remember how it turned out! Do I bring my camera and spend the day behind the lens capturing guests interacting and event details to have as memories? Or, do I leave my camera to be completely present and enjoy the party like every other guest engaging in meaningful conversation without a camera in hand (hurray for finger food!)?
About a month ago now (or more!), my wonderful sister-in-laws threw me and the babes a shower. I chose to leave my camera at home and had a wonderful time… but do wish I had some candids from the night. What’s a girl to do?
One of my SILs took these snapshots before the party began… Imagine that table full of delicious appies and people crowded in, laughing and holding babies.
Isn’t the ‘two peas in a pod’ theme the cutest!? Notice my maternity photos and twins newborn photos? I love the little details, the cupcakes, mint water, and my all time favourite sugar cookies (I could eat them for days).
What’s your motto when it comes to taking pictures at parties? I’d love to hear your take!
