Bring on the children

I've been dreaming about starting a photography business.  And while I'm not close to opening my doors,  I'm ready to take the next step and start practicing.  Practicing on children who have a different last name as me.  :-)

I'm moving to the practice portfolio building stage of my dream and I need volunteers.  Guinea Pigs. I need little people models starting this Spring and Summer.

If you or a friend in the area would be interested in a photo shoot, contact me.  We can put something on the calendar and I can start clicking away.  And hopefully you'll get some great photographs in the process too.

Awesome idea, Emily! I'm so excited for you!! If you want to add some family shots, I'd love to have you take some when we're in the area for my shoots:).

Tessa said...

Let me know if you are ever in Dallas this summer, I would love to let you practice on Grant! Plus, it would be a good excuse to see you and chat in person for a change. :)

Only children, or can we work out a couple's engagement shot? We had some taken in the winter, but we would like spring/summer ones as well...

P.S. When I read the title of this post, I TOTALLY thought you were making the announcement that you are pregnant!

Alex and Emily said...

I'm excited about this first official step too. Thanks for all the encouragement!

And for Tessa and Brooke, I wish I could photography both of you! If only we lived closer. The good thing is that I travel to both of your locations about once a year...

Haha! I see what you mean, Brooke. No, no more children here, yet. :-)

yay,Em! This makes me so excited and happy for you. I know you can be successful in this because you enjoy it AND you're really good at it. My friend Leah is a photographer in Dallas, mom to 2 very young boys. She has a website/blog http://lifeslittleimagescom.powweb.com/blog/

Check it out for ideas, or bookmark it it for when you have a minute. ;)

Awesome Emily! I absolutely adore the pic of Cordelia in the snowman hat. So cute. Good luck! I doubt you will have a hard time finding kids to practice on!

Oh man, if you're in Dallas anytime soon then I have the perfect practice subject for you :) Those pics of the girls are amazing (as usual!)

You know you're opening the flood gates in posting this, right?! :) haha It is indeed very exciting, though, and I'm happy for you! :) We'd certainly love to have you take some photos of Eden - and/or of us as a family sometime. We'd be honored to be a part of your portfolio ;) I do love your portraits of the tiny tots!!

Much love and excitement for you as you continue on this path.
