fiddle leaf photography
Mar 9, 2023
I was in the change room this past week and to my left was a stack of 17 pairs of one-leg-inside-out jeans. Every single pair had been angrily tried on my body and then with an irritated huff, I ripped them off and aggressively hucked them in the corner (after I had to step on the free leg as one leg wouldn’t come off my ankle – you feel me, right?). I was sweating and swearing – it wasn’t pretty.
Too baggy. Too high (why must jeans touch boobs now?). Saggy bum. Wedgie bum. Too tight. Too short. Too ripped.
All I want is to find a damn pair of jeans that fit and don’t feel like they’re breaking me in half when I sit down. Ones I want to pull out of my closet over and over again? Ones that feel like pyjamas but don’t look like them? Is it too much to ask? (Apparently!)
Now….bear with me here as I’m going to attempt to compare jeans to photos (it’s a stretch, I know – btw, jeans no longer seem to have stretch).
Putting on your ‘good clothes’, washing your kids’ faces, showing up in a field and allowing someone to capture the real you in photos is stressful. Perhaps as stressful as trying on bathing suits or jeans?
It can take a lot of trial and error to find the right fit.
The photographer who can interact with your family, make things fun AND produce stellar photos. The photographer who keeps you calm and feeling confident (instead of swearing and sweating in the change-room!).
But, when you find the ONE, daaaaaaaamn, it’s good. So good that you just want to buy that same pair of jeans over and over again (and make sure they never touch the dryer).
(Ok, Kelly, let’s wrap up this ridiculous comparison. 🙄)
Outdoor Spring Short Sessions are open for booking!
And, they’re the perfect way to figure out if I’m your fit (your comfy jeans, perhaps?).

LET’S TALK MONEY

Short sessions often sell out in days. So, if you have any questions, email me and ask away, then hop back and grab your session.
See you at the shorts!
