I took my daughter out for her 5 year old birthday shoot and I love the photos we captured. I can’t believe it my oldest daughter is already 5! Soon she’ll be starting Kindergarten — she’s excited and I’m excited, but I’m not too sure how we’ll feel when the first day comes! There may be tears (by me lol).

It almost makes me suddenly feel older. I’m not a young mama with babies and little kids, I’m a mom with a big kid already. At least I still have two more to chase after and keep me feeling young, for a little while :).

My DIY Birthday Photo Shoot

We did her 5 year old birthday photo shoot at the park right adjacent to her new school, so it’s meaningful to us. I hadn’t been there before but I think it was a perfect setting.

For each of my daughter’s birthdays, I like to take them for a special birthday photo shoot, just me and her, for some nice pictures to commemorate that moment in their lives. I only started doing an actual photo shoot last year when my oldest daughter turned four, the previous years I just have snapshots of her at her party or opening presents.

I like having a nice portrait of them from close to their birthday, that I can display on the wall or put in their photo book with some information about their growth and personality.

This was the first year that I shot her photos using manual settings on my camera. I’ve been committed to manual for about 6 months now and I think my photography has improved by leaps and bounds because of it. I’ll have to post the pictures from her 4th birthday as well, which I cherish, but will show you the difference between then, using auto settings, and now using manual settings, plus having learned more about composition and such.

I hope you like these photos as much as I do! I’m sure a professional photographer could have taken some more unique and artistic shots, but I’m still proud of myself for improving and for capturing my daughter as she is now.
