my first official photo shoot!

As mentioned in my post yesterday, I had my first photo shoot, and I wanted to share a few of the photos from that.

My cousin Emina and her husband, Mike, are due to have their first baby early this month – within the next week or so!  She asked if I could do an outdoor maternity shoot for her, and of course I said yes!  I’ve been wanting to do photo shoots for people for a while now, so I was very excited to get the opportunity.  Okay, I was pooping my pants leading up to it – what if I did a poor job, what if they hate the photos, what if I just don’t know what I’m doing and I mess up royally?!  Needless to say, when I got home I pulled the memory card out of the camera, tossed it at my husband and told him to be honest about just how bad they were – I’m incredibly hard on myself, and I work every day to try and build up confidence in my abilities.

We went out for several hours in the evening, and checked out my new favourite spot (read about that here) and the waterfront park.  I haven’t had a chance to look through all the photos yet (there are a ton of them!), but these are merely a few that I did get a peek at.  Emina and Mike – thanks for the wonderful opportunity to do this shoot for you.  I hope that the love and happiness you obviously feel towards each other are showcased in these photos.

  1. Hi,
    I was just curious to see if anything was posted on your blog when I found this. 🙂 The few pictures you have here look great and I’m sure the rest will look just as great.. Practice makes perfect right?… 🙂
    We can’t wait to see the rest of the pic’s..
    We were a little nervous ourselves since we’re not professional models or anything (he,he), but I think over all we all had a great time..
    Keep up the good work and once our little one finally arrives we’ll have to get together to do another photo shoot. 😉
    Thank you for everything and it was our pleasure.
    Emina & Mike
