Just over a year ago I did maternity pictures for my co-worker as a gift, so when I donated a session to a charity auction at work she was determined to be the winning bidder and have me photograph her little girl Audra who was about to celebrate her first birthday. Although Miss Audra wasn’t too keen on posing with her parents, she was willing to hang out by herself and stare at us like we were crazy. We did get a few grins out of her and quite a few other fun facial expressions – especially the look of terror she displayed when her momma tried to put a headband on her!
In my book this was a win-win. I was able to support local charities and create memories for someone I know, all while having fun. You can’t ask for a better gig than that!
