There is one problem being a photographer: I take so many pictures for others that I don’t have time/don’t feel like using the camera more than I already do/don’t have time/make lots of excuses/ not to take pictures of me and my family. Not taking pictures of me is OK, I am much much happier behind the camera than in front. But I would like to have some more pictures of me with my daughter and as a family though. Oh did I mention, my hubby doesn’t like having his picture taken any more than I do? Anyway, I really really want to get more pics of us, and it is something that is very high on my to-do list! And not just vacation stuff, i want some more pictures from our life here in Abu Dhabi too. Luckily I have my beloved iPhone, and I have gotten a lot better lately taking pictures of small things in our everyday life. And honestly, for future memories, iPhone isn’t bad at all. Did you know you can make and iphone/instagram album at Blurb? I am just getting ready to order mine, I will show you when I get it!
That being said, of course I will choose pictures taken with my “real” camera over my iphone any day. So while I am working on getting better at taking pictures of our family, I will at least stick to my goal of showing you 1 portrait a month of Sophie. And in line with the wish of having more everyday pictures, I have made a story board of Sophie where I have tried to capture some of her real expressions. And as the person who knows her best in the entire world, I think I did a pretty good job
I can make story boards from sessions too, but then you have to ask for it
If you like my pictures, I would love it if you liked my Facebook-page!
