Intimidation

My most intimidating photo shoot. (doesn't this picture crack you up, I know it does me!)

A family with four grown boys. I love this family as my own, and have known them for years. I will say the biggest thing I learned (photography wise) was I need to learn how to take control. I wanted to please everyone and EVERYONE had their opinions, and therefore we never got much accomplished. I sure had fun though, and absolutely love when people volunteer to be my guinea pigs!

I also learned that teenage boys aren't so scary. Good news the boys promised to let me practice any time I want. Poor guys, they don't know what they have coming!

that first picture is AWESOME, Brooke! I need to find a place where I can get something similar. The mountains are always in the way, much as I love 'em. :)

The top picture is funny, but you did a good job.

GREAT jumping pic!!! you did an awesome job - I am the same way about taking control too. I am bad at directing, I just want to follow people around taking pics and them not know I'm there

Great job! Direction is the most important thing in photography. Thankfully you were working with older kids who were probably patient enough and smiled on command..hopefully right? Just think if you were working with 4 TODDLERS!

I did a little photoshoot for a friend with 3 boys 5 and under. It was fun but we had to take breaks in between so the boys could run around and get all the wiggles out..then we would rein them in and start all over!

You are doing so good!
