I always take my Big Girl Camera with me to things like small fuzz birthday parties. I don’t necessarily take the BGC with me because I want to document the whole thing. I’ve tried to do that in the past, and I’ve failed miserably at that. I never quite get close enough because rightly so there are all kinds of people who want to be in on the fun and document these special moments. And I don’t necessarily want to take myself out of the fun. There are, though, times when I can capture other little things – memories that have been made but might get forgotten when it’s over and we’ve moved on to the next thing.
A month or so ago, we attended a friend’s baby’s first birthday party. There were lots of people there to celebrate Walker and give him lots of attention, and there were quite a few little people in attendance. I tried to take a few pictures of the birthday boy, but I wasn’t happy with how the shots were turning out…and there were a ton of people there with cameras. So I started focusing on the little people in attendance.
