I know I posted once a long while ago about this but I thought maybe because I have been around longer, more moms would reply. I know there are alot of us on here. I think it would be fun to get a discussion going. I think being a mom photographer adds quite a few joys and challenges. On the positive side I have two cuties to practice on and a ton of friends kids too. But finding time to go out shooting is really hard. I guess it is because I am a full time (meaning 24/7) stay at home mom. When I really cant get out I have started to go do driving photo shoots. When the kids are sleepy I load them up, give them a snack and go looking for something I can shoot in or by my car. I have only done it twice. Once the kids started to cry instead of nap so I called it off and the other I found this great cemetery I could drive through (huge score!). I really need to get a small P&S camera to take snap shots ... like when we go to the zoo or birthday parties. I kind of hate not doing my best work for every shot, but I am sick of lugging around my XTi and lenses. So my questions to fellow photog-moms is What are the best and worst things about being into photography and being a mom? How do you get in time to shoot? Do you use different cameras when you are seriously shooting verses when just getting snaps of your kids?
