Ok, remember when I showed you images of my good friend Bekah?  Well on our little outing in Midland, I let her take some images of me.  She loves photography and it was fun to let her play around with my camera & to explain it all as we went along.  It was actually really good perspective for me.  As a photographer, we usually don’t find ourselves on the other side of the lens.  I don’t know why that is – but ask any photographer & they’ll tell you.  I didn’t know at the time, but for Christmas my cute husband got me a photo session for the wonderfully talented Jenn from Bend the Light (click here for link to blog) in San Antonio.  What a sweetheart!!!!  We haven’t gotten our photos professionally taken since our wedding and this is the perfect opportunity before we start our family to document and remember this time that we are waiting for Camp.  PS- if you have no idea what I’m talking about, head over to our family blog (click here) to read about our adoption process! We want our dogs to be in the photos & I can already see some of the images of them hanging in Camp’s room – you know, like “my sister” “my brother”. haha.  I really also want to use the hallway in our home as our “family portrat wall” and I can’t wait to add to the images we already have.  I just think it’s SO IMPORTANT to document your families life – and who cares that we don’t have kids yet, we have furry animals and that makes us a family!

When I was taking photos with Bekah, it was the perfect opportunity to practice what I preach about what to wear!  I always tell my clients to wear something bright, colorful, fun accessories, something you wear all the time & I know you love the way it looks on you.  So I busted out with some of my favorite fall outfits & fun accessories (maybe I accessorize a little too much…) and off we went.  Now, I’m already thinking about what my favorite outfits are for spring!  I have already made an appointment the week before our session to get my hair cut, and am probably going to start practicing my “laugh” in the mirror.  Things to consider folks!

Being on the other side of the camera can be sort of awkward!  It was a good perspective for me to make it a point to really get to know my client before the session so we can have fun together & laugh and so they feel comfortable around me.  It was a good for me & I would encourage any other photog’s out there to do the same.  You won’t be sorry!
