My first photography classes happened this past week... and overall I think everything went wonderfully! I got to know some great girls, who have a lot of picture-taking in their future, and I don't think I ever did anything too embarrassing, which is definitely a plus for me.
My gorgeous friend Tari, and her equally beautiful daughter Abbie, were our models for the field trip class on Saturday. I learned something about myself... I'm not yet good at doing a class and a photoshoot at the same time. I had every intention of having some great photos to post after the class... photos of our models, and of the class members (because a whole bunch of photographers with their cameras in the face of one poor model is definitely a sight to see). The problem is, I got done and realize that I did a lot more talking and helping than shooting, and there was hardly anything on my own camera. ;)
I do love to teach... I think I'm definitely a teacher at heart, and I'm so grateful that I can share something with others that I love so much! I'm already looking forward to the next classes in April! Thanks again, March girls, for being such an amazing first experience for me! I love you all. :)
