    Practically every time I walk into IKEA (which is about once a week) I see a gorgeous child wearing super hip fashions and I want to photograph him or her for exactly the same reasons. I have an idea that I want to see captured. Until now, I have stopped short of handing my card to the mom, not wanting them to think I'm a weirdo. Not anymore. Thanks for sharing this post. Yes, I think it's great to continue to be creative and try new things and why not look at it as getting a free model - not a free shoot. The day rate for a professional child model would otherwise cost you.


    I totally shoot for portfolio building during my slow time! Since I am a pet photographer I love having the freedom to try really different things. This summer I did a vintage series at an outdoor antique center with a black great dane and model!


    Bev, those pictures are fantastic. I love great danes and what a fantastic location! Thanks so much for sharing. I have been following your blog for a few months now-love your pet photography!

    I *LOVE* shooting for fun.. not only is it a gift that you are giving to the person you are gushing over their child over, but a gift to yourself..because it feels good to explore your creativity... just ENJOY the shoot w no pressure!!!! Some of my most inspiring shoots have been free ones! Everyone always asks me how can you afford to give away shoots... I cant afford not to really. It sparks such a creative tone with me that my following paid sessions are even better than the last! Not to mention picking who you give your free sessions to is key.. because their friends freak out over your gorgeous images! I love happy topics like this one!


    Ok, you've given me the push to go out and do this!
