It has been quite a while since I’ve taken any pictures of my son, Grayson, with my good DSLR camera instead of just my iPhone, so I decided that since he had just turned 15 months a week before, I’d take some photos of him at the park.
He started walking only a few short weeks ago, so he got to show off his new skill to some of the joggers on the path! Of course he smiled his shy smile at every single person who passed by, as he always does.
It can be pretty hard to get good pictures of a fast moving baby, so I found this awesome stump for him to sit on.
After a few minutes he had had enough sitting and wanted to walk around again.
And since I don’t have many pictures of Grayson and me together, I attempted a selfie of us with my super heavy camera. Let me tell you, that is no easy task! And when I saw the result, I couldn’t help but laugh at Grayson’s fish face.
And in case any of you thought my photos always come out of my camera with perfect lighting, coloring, and blemish free, here is an example of why photographers charge what they do. The picture on the left is straight out of my camera, and the picture on the right is after 45 minutes of editing. I always spend this amount of time on each and every photo I provide for my clients. Just remember that even though it may seem like a lot of money just for pictures, you don’t know just how much time the photographer is spending on editing your photos. It’s not just the hour or two they spend with you during the session, it’s countless hours in front of the computer making sure each and every photo is perfect.
