I had my first photo shoot yesterday

I was e-mailed by someone who I hadn't met before that wanted their pictures taken. I took their pictures and am making them Christmas cards. They were the most beautiful family, so friendly and I had a lot of fun (despite being nervous). I am trying to save for a DSLR. I am so excited that I am getting more shoots. I just ad to share my excitement! I would attach a picture but I didn't ask if I could post them on here.

Congratulations on your first photo shoot hope you have lots more. I can see that you are ethical and I like that that will bring you lots of costumers. My friends photos were all over the net because they had to tell the photographer not to post them (usually the photographer has to ask permision).

Yes, I would want to know if my picture were going to be posted somewhere. Especially on a message board. I am trying to get a photo site going so I can show what I can do but I think I need some more shoots before I go that far. I am doing it for fun and hopefully I will be able to make some money as well.

I know its hard to get jobs I will tell you something. If you are serius about the whole thing dont wait till you have enough pictures to put it on the web. Get friends and family to pose for you have different setings not just Christmas, have baby shots, relaxed shots. People like when they see lots of styles.

Hopefully! I was hoping to get some Easster and spring shoots but with my birthday and my daughters birthday, working doing transcription, school, both kids being sick now twice and Easter in the next couple weeks I just haven't had time. Maybe once the wether breaks. I know you posted this a long time ago.

Congratulations! I was excited this year to have several of my friends ask me to shoot their senior pictures. The ones I've done so far have turned out pretty nice. :) Have fun and keep moving forward!
