I was asked if I would take pre prom photos. I said that I would, knowing that I have never done that before. I think I like to secretly scare myself with each and every session that I take on. As the date drew closer, I was keeping in close contact with one of the moms. We needed to have a location because their time frame was 3:00 to 5:00, which is no bueno when it comes to light. Also, I was informed days before that there would be a total of 7 couples. Oh my gosh, I thought to myself, how am I going to photograph each couple separately and then group shots? See what I mean? Fear before each session must be my thing. Anyways, the only way to over come fear is to just keep moving though it.
On the day of the shoot, I arrived 20 minutes early so that I could get my settings. I asked the two girls that were already there if I could take photos of them so that I could see how I could have them stand to keep the bright, dappled light off of their faces. I had mentioned that I wanted to take some fun, silly shots. She said, those were her favorite shots to take. When she said that, it gave me a huge sense of relief and really took a lot of the pressure off.
You block your dreams when you
allow your fear
to grow bigger than your faith.
