May Your Days Be Merry and Bright…
Do you know what is so wonderful about family coming for the holidays? You get to love on them for hours on end, but then they know the camera is going to come out. A photographers dream…not so much the families dream…smile! But Mama is in her element and the little chicks want to make her happy♥ Our family photos needed updated in the worst of way. Everybody was given fair warning, way in advance. I know the sister chick-lets were clucking away on the phone to each other about the upcoming day. But the mother hen was adamant about this event to take place. The motto I live by now..”Life is too short and you don’t know what tomorrow will bring!” So bring on the camera and capture those memories!
I am currently enrolled in Susannah’s Conway Photography Meditations Class. She interviewed Larry Towell who is a great photographer. The one thing his mentor said, which has always stuck with him is, “Learn how to photograph your family – those successes will carry to everything else you photograph in life.” “Photographing one’s family is probably the most difficult thing to do in the photography arena.” It really did my heart good to hear this, I was hoping I wasn’t the only one feeling this way♥ You want it SO perfect….it is your family we are talking about. You set very high perfection goals to be achieved…sometimes not always possible in certain circumstances. If you are a photographer, I hope you can remember this, the next time you are having a photo shoot with your family.
They were very very good sports and I am very happy with the images I was able to capture.
The first and last photo I made for them to use as their Christmas Cards this year.
I will be taking appointments for the next year session as soon as the holidays are over with.
In a few short weeks, I will have my 2013 rates and policies posted here on the blog.
Happy TWO-sday to you!
They make a great TWOsome, don’t they?
Lots of love,
