Jasroop's 16th birthday party

Date posted: 30 April 2018

Three people looking at camera at a birthday party

Jasroop’s 16th birthday party was the latest celebration we've been asked to capture for the Grewal family. As usual for their family get-togethers, all the generations were there, from newborns to great grandparents.

Family is very important to them and over the years we’ve had the pleasure of attending many of their get-togethers which are always full of colour, fun and love - with everyone coming together for a good time. We’ve built up a relationship with everyone and are proud to have become their family photographer.

As usual, it starts out quite gently, with everyone wanting to have their photo taken - relaxed and natural family portraits spanning the generations. It’s a wonderful way to capture everyone from the newborns to their great grandparents, plus all the cousins, siblings and friends.

There are always opportunities to capture the many different traditions of their Sikh culture - one being the tradition of the guests feeding the host pieces of birthday cake.

After the buffet the dancing starts. It’s always quite gentle at first but it doesn’t take long to build up to fun-filled mayhem with people throwing themselves about - and with me standing right in the middle of it all.

Here are some of our favourite photos from the party.
