SHELebration Details: It’s Party Time!

This past weekend was the party and it was a major success! All of the hard work was absolutely worth it. There was so many great moments! Unfortunately, I was not able to see them all. Fortunately, I had a photographer there to capture those moments! Personally, I feel that having a photographer at an event is a must have. It doesn’t have to be a professional photographer. It could be a friend or family member. Just make sure you delegate the photo responsibility to one person. Also, if you want certain moments of the party captured, I suggest that you make a list for the photographer. The last thing you want to say is, “Oh, I wish they had taken of picture of this or that.” Here is my list:
  • Food
    •  Shot of the poems
    •  Wide and close up
    •  Detailed shot of the food word in the poems (example, ?hot dog? will be in a different color from the rest of the poem)
  • Cupcakes
