we used to homeschool. last year we made the decision to give me a break and the kids an experience in public school when we moved to a highly appraised school district. i still miss homeshooling and I've no doubt that we will do it again but for now I kiss up to the teachers, get involved in the school, and focus on my photography. the result? they've had great teachers, I've met lots of new people and I'm loving taking better pictures!
this was my daughter's first teacher ever.
gorgeous right?! but that's not all, she was so good with the kids and won them over completely. those kids loved her and my daughter was no exception. i was so happy to do their family portraits to thank her for her time and patience and we scheduled to start the shoot at the local library. i love tying in the location with the client, making it personal and the library seemed appropriate.
did I mention her kids are adorable too?
after some great shots inside we moved on to the outside and melted in the Texas heat. kidding, they glowed, I melted.
we had some fun with the architecture and then moved to a second location. a historical cluster of cabins that were built by the first settlers in the Bee Cave area. this was the clients suggestion and a first for me!
it was a great location and the kids loved exploring and talking about how people used to live. i learned a few things during this photoshoot.
make it personal.
make the location relevant.
when at all possible, gift a photoshoot to people that touch your life in some way.
