It finally happened.
I had my first real photo shot with this wonderful family.
When Melissa came to me and asked me to take their family photos I totally thought. . . NO! NO! NO! NO!! there is just NO way I can do that.
But, she is a friend of mine. She told me I could do it.
For three weekends we tried to get these photos done but, it rained hard every weekend. It just didn’t seem like it was going to happen.
I tried to plan it so we could get started early and I told her about the golden hour. If we started early we could avoid shadows on faces, I said. But, Melissa is a busy mom and that didn’t’ work out at all. We got started at 11:45 a.m. yesterday afternoon.
When we got there – again I told her I was worried about the photography gods, the shadows, and – well, you know. . . .
You want to know what she said? “Lee, you’ll make it work.” and I said “Well. . . okay, let’s close our eyes and shoot. We should have at least one nice photo out of all these. “
So, that’s what I did. I closed my eyes, suggested we go into the shady areas ,relaxed and then had fun.
Now, can you believe I have photos nicer then these to share?
