Trust


A couple of months ago one of my friends showed a great deal of trust in me- she asked me to take pictures of her family together, including her baby bump.

*gulp*

That is a lot of trust and a lot of responsibility! I'm not a professional- just a passionate hobbyist! And since this was partly a maternity shoot, it isn't like we could try again at any time- I needed to get at least a few images right the first time!!

But I agreed, prefacing my agreement with "Well, they may not  be fabulous, but they'll definitely be free!".

So a time was set and off we went! I'm pretty pleased with how the entire thing went off, though I did learn a lot about shooting portrait photography. I'm just glad that I am friends with them- otherwise I'd have been way too jittery to do this at all!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the shoot.

Beautiful shots. You did a great job. I LOVE that last shot. The lighting is gorgeous. Sweet little (growing) family. Has she had her baby yet?
Would love for you to stop by and share

It's easy to see why she trusted you to help preserve such a special time! These are amazing and I'm in love with the "emergency one." Stopping by from the paper mama linkup.
