These July pop up family photo shoots literally saved our backsides! That may sound a little crude, but that’s speaking from the heart. I was going to use another word, but I’ll leave that up to the imagination which should not be too hard!
It’s also a little shout out from the unknown territory in which we currently find ourselves. One in which we literally lost our income overnight. If it weren’t for these family shoots, along with amazing support of people buying vouchers and supporting us through the making of photo books and slideshows, we’d probably have been flogging our camera equipment to pay our bills right now.
We’ll be honest in saying that family shoots only made up a very small percentage of our income. Funny that this very genre of photography is what is keeping our little business alive right now. And through all of this, maybe a lesson to be learned is the importance of family. We’ve travelled the peninsula and some, and met the most amazing bunch of people along the way. With socializing being pretty much a no go for now, this has also given us our ‘social fix,’ as every weekend we get to hang out with a whole bunch of cool people!
