For a while now, friends have been asking me if I ever give thought to hanging out my own shingle as a portrait photographer. And while I find this incredibly flattering, the answer has always been a resounding “No.” There are sooooo many talented photographers out there and honestly, I’m never really sure if others share my aesthetic ideals – and my aesthetic is not something I am willing to compromise.
But when a friend needed help with her Christmas card photos, I nervously but happily agreed to play photographer. And it was fun! I think the results are beautiful, and I hope they agree. I’m still not hanging out a shingle, but perhaps occasional photo sessions for more friends could be in my future.
