My boys had their school photos taken last week.
I had a studio session at the weekend.
No prizes for guessing what I did.
I don’t dislike school photos, they’re not even expensive. But no-one pays someone else to do a job they could do better themselves, right?
Well the school proofs came home today. They’re not bad. Not bad at all. Obviously the smiles are a bit wooden or missing entirely. But some children do that to me in the studio too because they don’t know me yet (we usually crack it after a bit of a giggle). I’m still not keen on the weird plastic table they have the kids fold their arms onto. But each to their own.
I am, however, definitely pleased that I did my own this year.
