21st Birthday Party Photography in Johannesburg

21st Birthday Party Photography in Johannesburg

We can’t really prevent all of life’s big happenings from happening, so best to celebrate them rather! And when you’re 21, you just have to have a party. This family I have also known from almost six years, and their eldest son turned 21, where his parents held a relatively small get-together with some of his family and friends.

The evening was filled with many smiles, because these are just awesome boys, and also because they were surrounded by only loving people, who made the evening so special and such fun. During the speeches such fond and dear things were mentioned and I realized anew, family is everything, just like my own whom I love so much.

Celebrating a 21st might seem not such a big deal, and why photography is needed is for some debatable, but I personally think it’s an awesome milestone, and having photos of that time when you’re just starting out in adulthood makes for great memories, especially for parents.

My sister’s boy already turns 17 this year, and it astounds me how time has flown and in a few months he’ll be going to matric at school. I remember him as a little baby and the cutest little boy – suddenly he is all grown. So of these past 17 years went by fast, the next 20 or 30 surely could too.

I remember my 21st well too, and I remember when I started my business, and even at the previous studios I’ve worked at, doing 21st birthday shoots still stay a favourite of mine, and it’s pure fun. This was held at the country club of the golf estate the family stays in, and even though it wasn’t the biggest mass of people it was a great party and we enjoyed it tremendously.

Life’s moments can quickly pass you by, I am not even sure how we are in September again already! But I do know the value added service I provide makes sure of fond memories for all clients.
