I've done portraits of this family for YEARS! Weddings, seniors, dance pics, school pics, family pics . . . The problem is, the mom is the type that wants what she wants. When I arrived, she pointed to the steps she wanted posed on and said . . . "My husband and I will stand here, and on this side of my husband I want son 1 (name ommitted ) and on this side of me I want son 2 . . . For the pics of her and her hubby, I ABSOLUTELY was not allowed to photograph below her chest area. I was not allowed to do poses that I told her would be very appealing for her body . . . She did give me more liberty on the ones of the kids. I didn't post any of the ones where she told me what to do in posing and placement. I feel like I was only there to push the button. Not be a photographer. Grrr! 1. 2. 3. These were taken right before the family shoot, the oldest son is going on an LDS Mission and needed some pics done. Mom wasn't here for these, and I feel they turned out nicely! 4. 5. by far not my favorite session, which breaks my cardinal rule! "Each portrait session has to be my new favorite!" That means I'm constantly improving!
