I'm gonna do it!

I said many times that I want to be a photographer...so I am just going to do it!  The thing that is holding me back is that I have several friends who are photographers and I'm afraid of the criticism.   I always feel like I have to explain myself.  So once and for all....here it is.  I don't feel like I am a person who just decided over the last year to pursue photography.  Infact I worked for a photographer for a little over a year after Dave and I got married.  I have always enjoyed playing with photography, and have always dreamed about being a photographer.  The photographer taught me a lot about the technical elements of photography, but when I quite working for him I forgot some.  So now I am reteaching myself.  So with re-teaching myself I have decided to do some work for FREE!  Yes you heard me FREE!
So I am petitioning to you friends out there.  Can I shoot you?! ha!
No really...I mean it!  Families...children....Portraits....Babies....maybe you know someone who is getting married...maybe I could snap some engagements or bridals.  
Leave me a comment, and we will arrange a time.  Because I don't have a studio as of yet everything will need to be on location!
So Come one come all.....Help me pursue and develop this talent!
XOXO

Kandis! Just yesterday I suggested to my Mom that you do Annie's twin's photos. They have never had ANY decent photos taken of them (I did some 6 months ago, but that doesn't count cause I'm a crappy photog) ANYWAY...that would be AWESOME!

Ooh me!! I need to get pictures of my girls in their new Easter Outfits. I promised their Grandma I would :)

Kandis,
I know exactly how you feel! I started my studio last year, and was a little timid at first because I worried about what others would say about my work. The truth is, if you can let go of that, you'll learn leaps and bounds from those who you were afraid of. Now, I'm still a little bit nervous about my work, hoping the client will love it, but you know I've figured something out; the more confidence you have in yourself, the better your pictures look. Believe in yourself! You can do it!

Good for you, Kandis! You better not be afraid of MY criticism, silly! You have a great eye and the basis to be wonderful!

I would love a family portrait! Maybe when you guys come out we can do one? I would love to use the Minnesota landscape as a backdrop...what do you think?
And if it means anything, I've known you've wanted to do this for a LONG time. Before the whole "fad" started.

I wish I lived closer :) I would LOVE to let you practice on my family. I am so proud of you for following your DREAMS. You never know until you try and I am so Happy you are taking the first step of trying. Good luck dear friend. I know you are going to do great, and I look forward to seeing all of the great pictures you take.

I'm so excited for you! From everything I've seen, you'll be an awesome photographer!
I was just thinking that I'd like to get some new shots of the kids. We haven't done any since last summer and you know how fast these little ones grow. And maybe a family shot as well.
Anyway, if you're not too overwhelmed by everyone else who wants a freebie, let me know. We'd be happy to let you 'shoot' us! =)

Haha, I just tried to post under hubby's account....

Anyway, we are in desperate need of a family photo. We're only had one professionally done a couple years ago and I wasn't impressed. I love your pics and would be honored to have you 'shoot' us.
