When we are at a birthday party everyone wants to get birthday pictures. Pictures of the guest of honor are number one of everyone’s list. But there are other pictures you will want to get so you can put together an album and see how the wonderful day played out.
If you are interested in creating an album of the day, you will not want to forget any pictures. Having a list of pictures to take during the party will help you not forget any. You can make this list up yourself writing down pictures you don’t want to forget or you can use the one we have put together for you and add to it names of family members or friends that you want to get pictures of.

If someone gave a toast or read out a poem made specifically for the guest of honor, make sure that is added in too!
