I love parties. I love the atmosphere, the fun, the gathering together in one place of all the important people in someone's life.
As a photographer, I love parties because people are occupied with conversation and laughing, and less aware of my camera. This gives me greater freedom to capture people being themselves, to capture something of their essence, without them feeling self-conscious.
This party was a cracker! A whole bunch of wonderful people gathered to celebrate the very first birthday of sweet Evie.
