Sienna’s parents contacted me when my little model was already 13 days old, but they were lucky to pick a week, when all my newborn models were running a bit “late”, so we booked our session within a couple of days.
I’ve trained with everyone. You name it, I’ve done it. Absorbing knowledge is my fetish. I wanted to write this blog post for ages, but not before I finished training with the last person on my dream team of British trainers I have coveted over the last two years of my professional career as a photographer. This week I fulfilled my plan. As I am known in photography circles as the douche that shoves constructive criticism down everyone’s throat, I believe it’s only fair that I extend it to trainers too.
This week crystallised for me the USP (unique selling points for those who had the pleasure of never working in sales), that Dinky Feet Photography has over any competitors, so I thought I will share it with you, as it’s something I have been passionate about since I started our photography business almost two years ago. It never occurred to me till now, and it did make me a little smug. Even more so than I am every time I show you guys a gallery of gorgeous images of your babies. Yes, I totally feel smug then. I created something priceless. I know we have a great gallery, when I watch it just before you arrive for your viewing, and I have tears in my eyes, and it’s not even my baby!
I may have a a bit skewed idea of what love and romance actually are. I had a tear in my eye when during a trip to nuclear reactor in Chernobyl, a couple of my friends got engaged in the middle of a dead town, with abandoned buildings around. People got evacuated from there in fear of imminent death thirty years ago, and there I was, standing in the middle of it all, thinking it’s the most romantic place on earth to propose. In my head I was humming Rihanna’s “We found love in a hopeless place”.
