As you know, I like to dabble with photography. I would like to one day take family pics as a small business on the side. The reason I like it is the fun that comes from capturing a family having time together. I love having nice pictures of my own family, so I love taking pictures for others to enjoy of their family as well.
This past November, one of my friends asked if I could take her family pics for Christmas. I of course said yes!!!!! I feel very blessed that I have friends who think I’m good enough to do their pictures. I was excited about this because I have also never done pictures for this big of a family before.
We went to a small downtown area and had at it. I wanted to practice in a few different spots and they obliged It was decorated for Christmas and so pretty.
We did a lot of family pics and then I wanted to get some good ones of the mom and dad.
I just love seeing “love”
The kids were fun too! It was interesting trying to get shots with all of them that were decent, even if they were being silly in them at times
I’m getting exited because I have two maternity sessions planned soon as well! Photography is just such a fun art to me and I am loving learning about it. One of these days I’ll get it all down!
Until then, I have wonderful resources like this great little photo essentials Exposure guide by Katie Evans. I plan on laminating this and carrying it with me because sometimes it’s good to have the “how to” for when shooting in manual right in front of you!
