We understand that a birthday party can be as big or as small as it can be. 

Birthday party memories should definitely be documented as each age milestone only happens once in a life time. 

So that is why, I love photographing parties.

The cake design, thoughtfulness and care put into making that cake leaves in me awe.

You will also notice a very strong trend in my photo galleries where I pay particular attention in capturing photos of friends and family hugging each other. Speeches are one of the best parts of the night because it can get super emotional or be really funny at times, it's such a rollercoaster ride, and it still is, thank you for sticking by my side.

Whether it is your child's 1st birthday party, or your sweet 16th we are all for it.

If you've got a 21st comin up, or a roaring 30's party bash, stylish 40th lemme tell you

You've just found a photographer that will dance with you whilst they take mean az photos for you!

Literally no matter what age you are turning, I promise you you're gonna get the best photos ever!


Giving out your photos

How photo galleries will be given out: 

Digital files will be given via May Dream’s Pixieset Online Gallery with a download pin where the CLIENT can:

Looking at the camera photos: (the number of photos given depends on who is willing to get their photos taken)

The photos will be chosen by us, edited by us and given to you in digital format via Pixieset Online Gallery .

Personalised Co-Creation:

You are able to pick out exactly what photos May Dream is allowed to post onto their social media platforms, by clicking the heart icon on each of the photos that you like.
