Quite a few others helped out with decor and food.  We decided it might be fun to have a photo booth.  A few people were skeptical but ultimately surprised at the participation.  Someone brought props like cowboy hats, guns and feathered headdresses.  We purchased a saloon style backdrop and placed a wagon seat in front of it and my friend's guest all but formed a line!  I was even told that a certain cousin RAN from cameras in the past, but dropped all his inhibitions and posed in such fun ways with his wife and daughter that I had no idea he didn't like having his picture taken! I solicited my daughter to help take pictures of everyone.  She mostly did a wonderful job of making sure all the dogs had their moment in front of the camera.   I wondered a little, but ultimately would suggest the idea of a photo booth at any family gathering.

<![CDATA[The Beginning...]]>Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:13:19 GMThttp://picmephotography.com/blog/the-beginningA friend of mine has overnight lodging in cabins.  She performs small weddings and has packages including a photographer.  About 5 years ago, she had a wedding scheduled and her photographer had an emergency out of town.  She knew I had a camera and called me desperate to satisfy her guests.  I was extremely anxious but enjoy meeting people, especially on the best day of their lives.  I’ve heard some amazing stories, some sad stories and a whole lot of romantic stories.  I hope to continue to meet gloriously happy people and capture “that” day.  It’s a win win for me.  My plan is to keep up a journal of sorts here and continue to learn and grow in my field.  So…. to be continued!
