Communion Day

Photographers often talk about how little time they have to shoot these super-important, busy people they have to shoot for big-time magazines. And the pressure.

Know what’s pressure? When the mom of the 8 year old little girl who’s communion party you’ve been asked to attend with your family asks “Hey, can you bring your camera and takes some photos?” That is pressure.

And the fact that the little girl has been in a scratchy dress, done up hair and veil for the better part of the day, and desperately wants to get out of it all so she can go play with your 8 year old little girl.

That’s pressure.

She came bounding out of the house as soon as we arrived. It’s was mid-afternoon and warm, beautiful day. All the better to run around outside in.

I didn’t realize how little time I had with Gracie, though. Um, like 7 minutes because as soon as we were done, she immediately went to her room to change clothes.

I’m sure she had a ton of photos taken of her that day by her family. She looked beautiful and I’m sure they all looked good. Still, since I was asked, I wanted to try to get my camera in a new place and maybe grab some shots the others didn’t.

Seven minutes. That’s all I had with her. I don’t think anyone else, though, got the portrait of her looking angelic inside a mud-splattered Jeep Wrangler with big, knobby tires.

Get the camera in a new place.

Work the scene.
