We did a family session of ourselves
We traded off the camera with a family member that was not photographer. We appreciate it but it just made me think that working with people as a photographer is a large part of being a photographer. Can you bring out the best in your subjects and snap the photo at the right time? It sounds easy but unless you have lots of experience doing it, it’s going to be a challenge.
