Fear Schmear

April 6, 2013

I don’t know why it took me so long to say “yes” to capturing family photos. Well, thats a big fat lie, cos really I do know. FEAR!  At the time I didn’t have a baby, I wasn’t around many people who had babies and from what I heard and now know to be true, babies don’t take direct very well. They like to play by their own rules and that scared me. Now however, I am a women with almost 10 months baby experience under her belt and just in case the obvious escaped you, I’ve spent quite a chunk of those 10 months capturing 1000’s of photos of my little fella. So you might say I’ve learned a thing or two about working with babies. But I’m not for a second claiming to be some sort of baby whisperer, but I’m definitely less intimidated by the little munchkins.

This morning, on a particularly warm and sunny Spring day I got to spend a little time capturing some precious memories for the adorable Dodd family, and seeing these photos of little Jordon, completely uninhibited and full of nothing but happiness and joy, made me so glad I’d swallowed my fear and said “yes” to shooting outside my comfort zone. Now this family will have these moments, forever.
