Guys, there is no school till May 4th. Lord help us all. I love my kids, I really really do. But homeschooling is not my thing. I am not a teacher. I have a new found respect for my sister and my kids teachers. I don't know how you do it!! The blank stares and the eye rolls make me mental.
I spent some time on my computer the other day writing down some tips to a client that had some shooting questions and it got me thinking. So, in the spirit of being trapped at home with our people, I thought this would be a great time to show you a little somethin-somethin I've been working on.
I have had to reschedule TONS of shoots, which is super depressing. I always thought I would love to be that Mom that sends her kids to school and did nothing. My husband would work and make millions and I would be the Peg Bundy of the family with fewer belts. Turns out, I enjoy working and making my own money. I am a boss. I love showing my girls that I did it! I started from a small Nikon entry-level camera and now I'm here (you have to rap that like the song to feel the full impact)!
Back to the sessions that are being pushed out. I feel especially for all those families that have booked newborn shoots months in advance. The window is so small to get them in the studio, pose them and have them stay asleep. And that means I don't get to get my weekly baby fix and snuggle all your babies. I feel bad for the families that have extended family sessions booked with family from out of town. I just feel bad in general. But the most important thing right now is to stay healthy. I repeat that in my head 1000 times a day to make myself feel better.
In talking with clients, friends and anyone that will really listen to me (I'm bored, have I said that), most people are okay with just getting a couple of great photos from each session. Kids are tricky, so when you deliver a gorgeous gallery of images, parents are all .....
So to help you take those "one or two" good photos of your kids and most importantly, your doggie, I have created this PDF. Enjoy!
