No sooner had I finished lamenting my somewhat failed New Year’s resolution than did a photographer friend of mine ask to take photos of my little one to help build her portfolio. I have long been thinking about taking Sonja to a professional photo session, but kept putting off the decision. Should I call Yuen Lui and sit in a studio, or should I buy a groupon for an outdoor photo session? Where would that take place? If I choose to go with a freelance photographer, who should I choose? At what point will I consider that I look good enough to spend money to have my photo taken?
I had no answers so really this was quite the fortunate occurrence My friend’s decision to return to photography came when my baby was still a baby but old enough to run around, and she didn’t want photos of me, just the baby. After a brief Google search, we settled on a park in my neck of the woods that neither of us had been to before but which had a beautiful arboretum. The photos turned out great as I knew they would. I shall not spend any time lamenting that I did not do this sooner, I’ll just resolve now to hire her every year.
