In November Jessica got ahold of me on Facebook and asked about family portraits so they could give them out as Christmas presents. Personally I thought it was a great idea, mainly because it gave me a chance to play with Penny again. So far she’s one of the very few people who’s birthday I can easily remember. For some reason 5-5-10 is incredibly easy to remember. 😉
Walcott is a beautiful place, but it’s usually crowded with other photographers who have the same notion. So if I go out there plan on using some of the places that the others haven’t found yet, and if I there isn’t anyone else around I’ll use the others as well… and I go earlyish in the morning hopefully before the others show up.
In this case, while we were at this last location overlooking the lake a large group showed up wanting to use it for the same thing…. We ignored them, let Penny finish her bottle and then shot the last set. 🙂 Jess told me the photographer was giving me dirty looks when they turned around and headed somewhere else. 😉 On the way out we passed them and I felt sorry for the other family, their photographer was shooting them fairly closely using a pop-up flash…<shudder>
