Jeanette has been following the blog and asking me random photography questions for a while. She recently got a Canon Rebel and a couple of lenses I recommended (the 50mm f/1.8 is used here…blurry background). She has also been staying up with the photo tips I post. When she emailed me this picture she took of her daughter I asked if I could share it here. I really don’t know who all reads this and who actually puts to practice the tips I put on here, so it made my day when she shared this with me. I love it!
One thing that really got to me when trying to decide if I would stop offering portrait sessions is knowing that clients I love and have spent so much time with would have to use another photographer. I wasn’t sad for them…there are plenty of phenomenal local photographers. I was bummed for me, I knew when I saw the toddlers I have photographed since they were newborns and the families I see on a yearly basis on other photographers blogs I would be super jealous that I wasn’t able to do the session. After getting this email from Jeanette – I realized how fun it is to teach moms how to get incredible pictures of their kids. Yes, I am still going to miss all my clients…but I am truly excited about where 2009 is headed. And if you have read this much then I’ll let you know the first SnapShops will be in March, one in April, a couple in May and probably June too…..details coming later.
