I recall a few years ago my niece drawing a picture of the whole family. She included grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. Everyone was in it. Everyone that is, except for me. When my sister-in-law asked her where Auntie Georgia was, she replied, "She's taking the picture!" That's where I usually am, taking the picture.
I have been taking photographs of friends and family for years now, but it has always been in a rather informal way. Last year however, I attached some pictures of Little One to a letter that I wrote to the Your Baby magazine (www.yourparenting.co.za). To my surprise, the editor loved my pictures (and Little One of course) and the photographs inspired a cover! Little One was the cover baby in March this year. This vote of confidence is just what I needed and so my photography turned into something a little more serious. In 2009 Georgie Girl Photography was born. I really consider myself to still be a student and I charge accordingly.
Georgie's Picks will be a new regular feature, where I will pick some of my favourite pics and share them with you. For starters, I thought I would share some pics that inspired a cover. Enjoy.
