Sayuri's 1st Birthday!!!

Hello lovelies! So sorry I haven't posted anything in such a long time! More beauty posts are coming up soon! For those of you who have followed my blog or my Facebook page for awhile, you all know that I'm not just passionate about makeup...I'm also passionate about photography! I had the honor of being the photographer for Sayuri's 1st birthday at the Crystal Palace in Disneyworld! My husband has been friends with her parents, Romeu and Paty, for a long time and when they asked me to photograph the festivities I was happy to do it! The entire family came up from Brazil and we had so much fun! My husband was such a huge help because he acted as my "second shooter" and caught some really cute moments.  Paty calls me Sayuri's "Auntie Na Na" and this was the first time I got to meet Sayuri. (Although I've seen tons of pictures of her, I nearly cried when I saw her in person because she's so beautiful!)  I wanted to do a quick blog post so that my readers can get a sense of the different aspects of what I do outside of the makeup world! Here are a few photos that didn't make it into her album on my Facebook page! To check out her full album, go to: www.Facebook.com/ReneeBruchPhotography (resolution is terrible on Facebook...hope they fix that someday!)

The location of the party...The Crystal Palace!

Sayuri with mommy Paty!

Yep...that's me! (Big nose and all!) She got lots and lots of kisses from me!!!! (Or "beijos" if you speak Portuguese!)

Can't go the Magic Kingdom and NOT take a photo with your hubby in front of Cinderella's Castle! This was right before we left to go home. We drove up from our home to Orlando (about a 3 hour drive), photographed the party and then drove back home all in the same day! Very tiring, but I didn't want to miss Sayuri's first birthday!

Random tips:
  • If you are photographing an event, make sure you have a backup battery charged and ready to go!
  • Don't forget extra memory cards too! You never know how many pictures you'll end up taking!
  • If you are using a hot shoe flash...don't forget spare batteries for that as well.
  • Lastly...a backup camera is a great thing to have as a pro photographer. If your main camera gets damaged or malfunctions, you will have that backup camera to use. It really does put your mind at ease to know that you have another in case something goes wrong. (I took 2 cameras to this particular shoot and it was a blessing knowing that if something terrible happened, I still had a camera I could use!)

I hope that you all enjoyed this post. Although it's not "beauty" related...it is certainly related to what I do and a part of who I am.
