I’ve been taking the Middleton’s family pictures for the last four years. Allie was my first client ever! When their oldest son was one, Allie asked me if I would take pictures of them for their Christmas card, and she wanted to pay me! It’d be an understatement to say I was shook.
I had never been paid for my photography and was beyond nervous to take their pictures. The nerves took over and I pretty much forgot how to shoot in manual. I was so focused on getting the exposure right, that I didn’t realize my shutter speed was 1/30 of a second the whole shoot. I went to edit the photos and they were all blurry, I called Allie and we had to redo the shoot. It was super embarrassing, thank goodness I haven’t made that mistake again. And double thank goodness that Allie had faith in me and has continued to hire me. She had faith in me before I did.
