Minimum Kit for Pro Children's Birthday Parties Photography?
6 months ago

Recently, one of my co-workers asked if I was available to shoot a children's birthday party and offered to pay (surprisingly). However, I turned her down since I've been shooting with my current gear long enough to know that I don't have the right tools to shoot hyperactive children in indoor, low-light situations.

I am not intending to upgrade, so I am asking this just to learn: what would be the absolute minimum kit of a professional children's birthday parties photographer?
