Ha -- just noticed the "Dedicated to the Child Portrait Photographer" logo. I probably noticed it early on, but totally forgot that this is what this website is about! Oops. :)

I don't shoot weddings yet somehow ended up with 7 this year, including one in the UK. Go figure.

    If you decide that you "don't do" something, that is when everyone asks you to do it!

Took children out for August portraits. There were tears. In under 10 minutes. Tell me again why I bother?

    Ahhh me too! And then my family makes me feel like Im a bad mother for doing it. My daughter let go of her 8 helium ballons after 5 minutes. I was heartbroken:(

    You beat me to it, I was planning to mention it :) Having spied on previous workshops I can vouch for the fact it's very worthwhile.

Is it weird to ask people here to "like" my non photography business page? :) I promise to return the favor…

Today's challenge - shoot 3 separate families, all with a bunch of young kids, during one golden hour beach session.

    Thanks Sara. My son and his family came down from Kansas and brought 2 other families with them. Between them there are 9 kids ranging from 8 months to 14. And of course they all want beach pictures :)

Anemia. Just... awesome.

  • leighdk's Photo
    Yuck! I've had anemia for years now. I have tips if you'd like...wait. I just thought about that and realized I am probably not a person to give tips if I've had it for years! haha

    *And I am really sorry to hear you have it, Stacie. That sucks.

    So... Homeopathic remedies, cook in cast iron pans, and hold your nose, but down 2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses every day! Medical people don't always agree, but I can't tell you how many people I know that have brought their iron levels up with blackstrap molasses.

I hate it when weather ruins my photo-shoots -- esp. when the weather is touch-and-go. So hard to know what to do in that case.
