…we made this session happen! We have rescheduled this one countless times due to crummy weather. AND as I write, there is currently about three inches of snow on the ground and it’s still snowing. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
So, just so it isn’t a secret, I get nervous for each and every session I take on. Every single one. One would think that these nerves would eventually not show up but they do. And you know what I find? I find that it always ends up being a waste of energy. There is certainly a pattern and it goes a bit like this:
I always show up to my session locations very early. I typically look around for a bit and then sit and ponder a loose schedule and sequence of the session. This is all the while my nerves are taking over and I’m thinking to myself that maybe this whole photography thing is just a bad, bad idea. I’m a first born child and I’m assuming that whole “fear of failure” thing goes with the territory, I suppose. As I sit and wait in anticipation, the unknown of how the session will go pushes my anxiety up many, many notches. I know, isn’t this completely silly?? AND I do this each and every single time!
As for the cure?? Taking photos. It is completely gratifying and magical to see a session unfold. The interactions, the laughing, the special moments that I get to watch. Nerves? Gone.
This session followed my typical pattern and once again, all said and done, there really wasn’t a question as to why I do this.
Thank you “C” family…I had nothing but fun with your crew. Here’s a sampling of what’s in store…
