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!
