It is a very rare occasion that I get to travel with a good friend who is also a professional photographer. We are both busy moms of very small children and it is a huge deal to leave our family to do our thang! Besides the fact that we went to WPPI ( Wedding and Portrait Photography International) which is one of the biggest PHOTOGRAPHY EXPOS in Las Vegas, Nevada, we took a day for ourselves with a SUNRISE photoshoot at Red Rock Canyon. It was amazing to feel free, with the wind blowing in our face, in the Mustang convertible we were upgraded to and the fact that we can just jump into it with no diaper bags, no buckling in, no whining, and no crying, etc felt almost surreal. Was it this easy to leave when you don’t have kids? We kept on asking each other. We couldn’t believe the freedom we felt. SO, us two photog moms went out and captured some amazing photos. This was totally worth the 4 AM wake up.
Now, I am not the type that likes to be in front of the camera. In fact, I absolutely hate it. I dread it, I don’t feel comfortable. Maybe it is a generation gap, but it does take time for me to just stand there and pose by myself for a photo. I just feel stupid. Maris, my millennial friend is a pro at this. Everywhere we go, she has the perfect outfit, she is always camera ready, and she loves the camera and the camera loves her. She makes it so easy! She does look like a model after all..
As for me… she got some great shots, but I like more photos like below..
