Clear Some Memory First

The last thing you want is to get halfway through the party and run out of space for photos on your phone. So, before the party starts, clear some memory on your phone. Go through all of your photos and delete any that you don’t need. Then, you can use a photo transfer app to move the ones you do want to keep onto your computer. This allows you to keep your photos safe while also freeing up plenty of memory for taking pictures at the party.

Take Photos Before The Guests Arrive

A lot of work goes into setting up a kid’s party, even if it’s a last-minute thing. You want to get some photos of all of the food and decorations before the kids arrive and everything gets a bit chaotic. All of the food will soon disappear and you won’t get a chance to photograph it. So, take the opportunity to get a few snaps of the party once it’s all set up.

Set Up A Photo Booth

Photo booths are a great way to get kids to capture some really fun photos of the kids and parents. You can set one up in the corner of the room. All you need is a backdrop and a camera, along with some props for them to use if they’d like to. They’ll line up and take turns getting pictures taken, so you can get one of each child. It’s easy to miss things in the chaos, so a photo booth is the perfect way to make sure you get at least a few good photos of everybody. The parents will be grateful for these photos of their children too.

Remember Social Media Etiquette

After the party, you might want to share some of the photos on social media, but you have to think about etiquette here. You don’t want to post photos of somebody on your social media wall without asking them first. Instead, you should send each person the photo so they can decide if they’d like to share it with their friends online or not. People have different opinions about how they want to handle their children’s privacy online. While some people don’t mind posting family photos, others would prefer that their kids are not put on social media. It’s important that you respect the wishes of the parents and let them make those decisions about their child, so don’t put photos online without asking first.

This is good practice because it shows that you respect people’s privacy and identity while also allowing everyone at the party the chance to have some fun memories captured for them.

Follow these simple tips and you can get some amazing photos of your child’s next birthday party!
