One of the things I’ve heard recently, is that a few of you say that you look forward to reading my Friday Morning Coffee posts and I am being completely honest with you when I say that I love that and also, wow, that surprises me.
This morning, I had a newborn shoot. I’ve been doing lots of practice, studying, research and basically had a perfect baby today. The parents did everything I asked and it went amazingly well.
I love shooting images of all kinds, holding my camera fuels me like nothing I’ve ever experienced before, but newborns? Well, I’d like to make newborns my specialty. Next month I’m attending a workshop out of state, it’s a dream come true workshop for me and it’s focus is strictly newborns. I love that I have everything in place before hand. (a strong grasp in understanding good natural light, I’ve mastered manual, etc.) I’m hoping that upon leaving the workshop, my A Game will begin.
I’ve been offering free newborn sessions since about August, it’s important for me to not only build my portfolio but to also practice. With each session, I have learned so much.
So, this morning, when I should have been writing Friday Morning Coffee, I was with this baby, doing this:
It was probably a little better than coffee.
But I missed you, either way.
