Last weekend I did a pre-dinner photo shoot with one of Declan’s best friends and her little sister. It’s amazing how much they have grown in the year since I did their last photo shoot. It’s also amazing how much easier it is to get kids to act natural when you know them really well. Unfair advantage, I know.
But here’s the thing. I really have been meaning to expand my freelance photography dealiebob. And make it less like a dealiebob and more like a j-o-b. But I end up more often just taking photos of friend’s kids because it’s easier. Partly because I hate trying to sell myself and partly cause we are just so busy with work and life anyway – who has the time???
But when I have a great afternoon like I did shooting these girls, I wish I made the time.
