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.
