Being the one in the family that takes all of the photos is hard. Every event I am behind the camera, parties, Christmas, christenings, engagements… Whatever it is, I’m there with my camera in hand.
I love it, mostly. I enjoy taking photos & I like to think I’m pretty good (I’ve done several paid jobs for friends and friends of friends). One day I’d love to do it more professionally.
Today though I’m stressing.
I have three children. My sister has a son and three step children. Adding them up…. Seven kids.
This afternoon I am taking portraits of my sister’s four. Easy enough, a few individuals and a few as a group. In between I’ll take some of my munchkins.
The thing that is stressing me is that we are trying to get all seven children, aged 10 months to 12 years, in a photo together. See, my mum has a photo when there were five cousins, but we want to update her photo for her. It was difficult with five & I had to bribe them with marshmallows, I can’t really do that with The Baby yet so it’s going to be stressful.
Better dose up on my Bach Rescue Remedy!
