I’ve shot a few hundred families; many of them by being invited by friends to… my friends’ houses for leisure. I treated that like work, too. Just because I knew the gifts of these photos are so well appreciated.
I’ve also embedded myself into other families’ homes as an assignment. That has resulted in a handful of very beautiful friendships.
Now, I’m big and hairy, and babies are soft and cute. So it is incongruous. But somehow, we find a way to relax and just be cool about the whole thing.
