Sometimes, in business, you have to just fly by the seat of your pants. Things might not go as planned and you just have to roll with it.
A couple of weeks ago I had our biannual photo session with Kelli all scheduled. She was excited to see my new studio and I was thrilled to share it with her! I decided to go early just to make sure the studio was set up exactly how I wanted it. Good thing I did.
The Rock and Roll Marathon was happening on that day. Going early gave me plenty of time to try to get to my studio from three different angle. No go. There were roads closed all over the place for the runners I could not get within three blocks of my studio. Even if we had parked on the other side of the closed streets would would have had to play Frogger to get across all the runners to get to my studio.
I quickly called Kelli and we made a new plan. I have not been to the Arboretum for years (since college maybe?) but we made a plan to meet there. It’s always a scary prospect to photograph a client at a location you have not seen before, but I have been taking pictures of these kids since before they were born. (Yes, it is possible!) They were willing to roll with it too and we had a great time. So much fun, in fact, that I am going back there with my own kids sometime this summer!
Here are my favorites…
