Tips for Taking Great Birthday Photos

There are probably no more photographed events in our lives than family celebrations. The Thanksgiving table, the unwrapping of Christmas presents  around the tree, a son or daughter's wedding and Mom and Dad's anniversary are must-haves in every family album. They are the gatherings to cherish and remember over the years and there's no better way to revisit them then in photographs.

Of course, when it comes to milestones to celebrate our mind does tend to move towards birthdays. When Grandpa sets up to blow out those 90 candles or little Jimmy's face lights up over a new toy flashes will be popping everywhere.

Historically,   birthday party pictures haven't received the same attention to detail as some of the other events. Yet, that just might be changing. 

With no more concern over wasting film and with the ability to see the image immediately, digital photography has turned everyone into a shutterbug.  As with any picture we take these days, when it comes to birthdays we want to step up our game and achieve an end result that doesn't just freeze the moment but does so admirably.


Here are tips from a number of sources on how to make sure your birthday shots are as special as the occasion:
