My First Non-Family Photo Shoot

Yesterday afternoon I did my first photo shoot for people who aren't my family. A friend had seen the portraits I'd taken of my kids this year, and she asked if I'd take some pictures of her children, too. I jumped at the chance to photograph others and practice my skills, but I have to admit I was nervous as to how today would go.

Even though it took the 2YO son a bit to warm up and smile for me, I was able to get some pretty nice shots. The 4YO daughter did wonderfully right off the bat!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

I'm pretty happy with the way the pictures turned out, and I'm linking up the appropriate ones with Black and White Wednesday.

These look really great. Now that I've gotten a taste of children's photography...I probably just need more practice. It's definitely an art. I love that one shot with the mad faces. I had one of my own - so I played into it and said, that's fine, give me your best mad face. She really put it on then!
