I have a photo shoot in an hour that I'm insanely anxious about. It is 11 adults and I rarely do adults or big groups really (nor do I want to).

The family is very wealthy and I haven't spoken with them yet, only their country club director who knows me because I took photos of her children.

I didn't even really want to be doing photography again, people just kept calling and it would be totally insane to turn money down so I decided to go ahead and do it. I'm very, very nervous that it will rain. It's been beautiful all day but there are clouds and rumbling on the horizon, and I'm really not equipped to shoot 11 grown ups in an enclosed area if I'm not in the studio.


Logically I know everything will be fine, they will be nice and in a festive mood (they are going on a cruise tomorrow), it probably won't rain, and they will most likely be pleasantly surprised with their photos but right now, I'd pay them my session fee NOT to do it.

There is absolutely no point to this post other than to attempt to kill some time.

Update: Whew, it's over. It was only marginally better than I feared. The pics turned out good but it wasn't much fun for me. I'll stick with kids--give me a snotty 2-year-old over a group of grown ups any day.

At least with kids you can get a real smile and not all that fakey, fake stuff.
