I am so thankful to have such great friends that are also photographers. It's a little like having co-workers where we can talk about our work and different ideas we have for our businesses. One of my closest friends is Aubrey Leeker of the Leekers Photography. In the fall we decided to do a photo trade day with myself, the Leekers and our other friend Taura Horn.
We all met at Pioneers Park for the opportunity to shoot each other's families. It was a great chance to try out some new ideas and experiment a little more than you might with other clients. It's also a great learning experience to be the subject on occasion and not just the photographer as we often forget the anxiety with being on the other side of the camera.
Aubrey and her husband Josh have two sweet girls that were basically professional models. I think they may have a lot of practice!
I hope this is a tradition we continue for many years as it was such a fun experience and I think we all learned a lot from each other!
