My VERY first clients...

Back when we lived in Japan and I didn't even OWN a DSLR camera, I met another budding photographer at work. We went out on a "photo safari" and I brought along my little fuji point-and-shoot... I had no idea what I was doing but liked the idea of creating something with a combination of what I saw through the "lens" and what I could accomplish in post-processing (which at that time was Corel's Paint Shop Pro).

Another of our friends at work, who was pregnant with her first child, asked if we would take some pictures for her... I had NO idea what I was doing... was probably shooting on Auto and was absolutely using a cheap-cheap lens.

I think this is how most of us start... shooting portraits for our friends, practicing, practicing, practicing.... practicing posing and settings and post-processing and interacting with children and couples and making small-talk... it all takes a lot of practice. And, at least where I'm concerned, all of those families who allowed me to practice my trade mean so much to me.

So this family... my very very first photo shoot ever... mean so much. And on top of being my guinea pigs, they are good friends.

So. All that blah-blah aside :) Here are the pics...

Thank-you guys for being amazing!

Until next time,
