There are things in this world I am constantly plagued with being afraid of. I have a list of things in my head that I constantly am terrified of happening to me at a session or wedding. In fact, some of these thing HAVE happened. Well, hello, mortifying experience.
I know must of my fears are silly things like ripping my outfit on a wedding day and having to walk in shame for the rest of the day, but still! I know every photographer has fears like this, right? I was talking with a couple on Saturday morning while shooting their engagement session and making them laugh as I described my silly nightmares. So, without further adue, I am going to let you all know about them too. I hope you giggle a little at each of these, and if you’re a photographer that you can relate.
Oh, and some eye candy to hold you over till next week.
~ I am terrified that I will drop one of my lenses at a wedding or portrait session. Or my camera. Or that I’ll just fall down at a wedding and break both my camera and a lens and a few bones. Do you see how this fear progresses constantly?!
~ I worry more about what I wear to sessions than I think my couples do. I plan my outfit a few days in advance. I am so afraid of showing up looking ridiculous.
~ This is a silly one, I am terrified that I will get into a car accident on the way to a session or wedding. OR when if I am driving my clients from location to location that someone will hit me. Talk about mood killer right there.
~I worry about running out of memory constantly, and I constantly buy more and more memory every month. This has actually happened to me before. Yep. I just know it’s gonna happen again, so I’m going to pause this post and go to Amazon real quick….
~ I am always worried that my couples won’t like my jokes and therefor thing I’m insane. I mean, I’m a little crazy, but still. I need some positive reinforcement in the way of laughs and giggles.
~ Last but not least, I will somehow, someway, someday rip/destroy/ruinmyprideforever by getting an unfortunate tear in an outfit at a wedding. I have nightmares about this one. That and meeting Jasmine Star and crying.
