I am by no means a photographer. I don’t know what I am doing behind the lens, and I am a total amature at photoshop, but not everyone can afford to get professional pictures done and there are milestones just that need to be captured on film.
One of my darling friends is expecting her first baby in November. She’s absolutely glowing and completely over the moon about this little bundle but she hasn’t got a money tree in her back yard either (where do people get those?), so I offered to do a little shoot before I went to school on Tuesday… maybe I can use it in my portfolio (win-win). I had one idea that did not work at all- we both ended up in tears. Hysterical tears. The photos were that bad. But, man, I would pay good money for a laugh like that. All the pressure of work and school and money worries just floated away. There’s something to be said for laugh therapy- probably the most releasing thing ever.
ps- if you’re needing some window/wall art that’s insanely cheap, head to your local thrift shop and get a couple doilies and assorted sized embroidery hoops, pull a doily tight over the hoop, tighten the hoop real good and then trim the excess off- you could also use images from old t-shirts (think rolling stones etc). Thrift shops are full of doilies and hoops because grandmas are down-sizing- super cheap and very easy to diy.
