You arrive to your family portrait session & are met with a stressed out mother, the father who clearly has no desire to be there & their two children running and screaming...
Your heart probably probably skipped a beat but after a quick internal pep-talk you get started.
You're taking photos but you know they just aren't turning out like you hoped on the drive over...
- The poses are stiff & awkward.
- You're trying to talk to them but it's going nowhere & the awkward silence is killing you.
- You can't seem to get a sharp photo of the kids playing around.
...you're left feeling defeated and worked over and can't help but think to yourself:
"Am I even good enough for this?"
"Will I ever get this right?"
And your clients walk away feeling unsatisfied, or at best neutral about the experience, with little motivation to return in the future
