Photo shoot



Three photo shoots covered in the last two weeks, and all three happened to be birthday parties (first birthday)
It was an experience, especially with kids all over the place. If you are on the lookout you can get some good expressions especially of the kids. This one was ready to trade a kiss for the chocolate bar 

 
This one had some nice coochie coohie things to tell the guests. 


But the best I liked was the expression (and action) of this little guy when he was asked to pick the winner of the game “bombing the city” Looked like he was saying “Oh my God, I have the privilege of picking the winner?”  


The same guy was very loud and clear in his protest when his mother picked up another child to pose for a photo.  


This child was not comfortable in the arms of Mickey Mouse, but then mamma wants a picture clicked for posterity.  


The first programme was almost a washout with the unexpected rains in Pune. 


But I managed to capture some of the highlights of the evening and strung them together to make a small video.

Some have it in real grand style with magic shows 


 and there are cameras of different shapes and sizes to capture the event 


If you keep one eye on the cake you are sure to see this sight – kids making a quick lick even before the cake is cut. 


I have to work more on my yoga classes as squatting and getting up is not an easy task for me. To catch this girl's impromptu dance I had to go down on the ground level.

Obviously the former picture is more appealing.

Apart from handing over the soft copies, the parents are happy when I isolate some of the pictures with a white background. 






At the end of the day the birthday baby is real tired with all the attention.

I think you could be in danger taking photos while eating bright pink cake! Candid shots are the best, aren't they?

Last week I also attended my nephew's birthday party and I know what you are talking about. Kids are in their own world and in their presence, we can also be a part of it...
