Little Everly was turning one! It’s a big event in all cultures but especially Chinese culture, and calls for a huge celebration. Her parents booked a private room at Open Kitchen He Tai Yum Cha at Macquarie Park to celebrate.
It was a big event, and extended family traveled from interstate and overseas to come together for this big celebration. In our busy lives today it was a rare event for everyone to be present to have a meal together.
Many families make big plans their childrens’ birthdays. From venues to catering to entertainment, everything is planned out to make an enjoyable and memorable event. Everly’s parents also made the wise call to hire a birthday photographer. Yes, everyone has a camera nowadays, but why would you organise a big event only to have one guest miss out on enjoying it?
When you’re behind the camera, you are on alert to see and capture moments as they occur. You cannot relax and take time to chat with friends and family. You don’t get to be present and experience the event. That’s why you should never put this responsibility on a guest you invited to celebrate with you.
It was amazingly dark inside the restaurant, with only a few spotlights from the high ceiling. However, by utilising extra lighting we were able to capture the mood and events of the day beautifully. From people catching up face to face for the first time in months, to grandparents visiting from overseas to see their grandchildren all grown up. The guests enjoyed a grand seafood feast, including a crowning crab dish.
We had a beautiful cake with a little monkey representing Everly’s Chinese Zodiac animal. All her friends, family, sister, and cousins had a great time!
After the event, we carefully selected the photographs so that you only had the very best moments of the day. The photographs were made into a custom mobile app that all friends and family could share and look back on.
