M's birthday party

party, party, party

It's been so long since I used this camera that I completely spaced one of the issues with a twin lens. If you are interested in knowing why the tops of the cupcakes are chopped off (not exactly what I was going for) you can read about PARALLAX below:
{Parallax error can be seen when taking photos with many types of cameras, such as twin-lens reflex cameras. In such cameras, the eye sees the subject through different optics than the one through which the photo is taken. As the viewfinder is often found above the lens of the camera, photos with parallax error are often slightly lower than intended, the classic example being the image of person with his or her head cropped off.}

Total bummer. It was framed so nicely. I'll be recreating the cropping with Jeffy's birthday cupcakes. Do-over!

I think tutus are a must for every birthday party we have from now on.

Little miss did not even hesitate when presented with a cupcake. She devoured.

  1. Looks like a winner of a party. Glad she had a fun time.

  2. She is stinkin' cute! Happy Birthday M. I love the color scheme for her party.

  3. Where did the 8th hot dog disappear to???

  4. She's got beautiful eyelashes! Love the tutu! Tiffany

  5. What a fun party! I'm amazed at how you even make hot dogs look like they could be in a Martha Stewart cook book! (not to mention how perfect those cupcakes looked too!)

  6. Your photographs are so natural and beautiful!
