So I was in my class yesterday and I was tlaking to a friend and she was telling me to go take pictures of a fire near my house, well one of her friends over-heard ehr say something about me being a photographer. She asked me if I take pictures for other people because she loved my sons photos on my binder. I told her yes I do and she wanted to see if I could take pictures of her daughter. So I might have my first non friend client!!! The only thing is when was asking me about my setup and if I have backdrops. I told her that I CAN do indoors, but it would be best and I prefer outdoors. Hopefully that doesn't change her mind. Also I have a sister in law? That wants family photos.. That gets me nervous because I have never shot more than three people and she is a family of 5.. I mean since it is family I am not super worried about it coming out super good. But I am still a bit nervous.

Okay I just realized my sister in law meant to take picture of her and her parents and siblings. Not her and her husband and kids. I wonder how many people that is...

Only take on what you feel like you can handle. I've made the mistake of taking on too much before, and it really REALLY overwhelmed me. So if you don't feel ready, just let her know that. Hopefully she'd understand.



What I've been doing lately is creating pinterest boards for each of the sessions I am doing, and create a board of images that I'd love to use as inspiration, or have great poses I"d love to try to recreate. Then right before the shoot, I create an inspiration page and print it out and bring it with me. I reference it throughout the shoot to keep my ideas for posing and lighting fresh. I'm so glad I do it, because a few times I've gotten flustered by something, or been a little spacey, and if I didn't have my inspiration sheet, my poses would have fallen flat. Just an idea to maybe help with the larger family?

Well I mean I have to give it a try sometime right? And I think it would be better to do it with a family member than an actual client. I am sure she would love it no matter what. There is going to be 6-7 people in the photo. And I actually have something a little like that. Except I have a photobucket with different albums of sessions with a bunch of different ideas in. I just bring my ipad with me and use it as reference if I am not sure what to do next. Or if I am having trouble explaining to the client what I want, I can show them what I am trying to get them to do.

Ok, since I'm still on a "high" from my Senior session I was thinking of putting an ad on Craigslist to see if I can get any hits. What do you ladies think, should I?
