I always say I’m willing to do anything for a great shot. What I don’t always say is that I’ll make other people do anything for a great shot. I’m usually kind to my clients, really I am. I don’t think I’ve ever asked anyone to do anything harder than say, lay down chest-first in an icy creek in their pretty white dress, or jump six feet in the air off a ledge. And those ended up being really great pictures, so they were totally worth it. But to lay down in a chigger-infested field? Have I finally asked too much?
Are you kidding me??? A family portrait like that? Worth a month of chiggers. Plus, it may have helped that I felt so bad that I gave them a free gift for their pain & suffering. I do have a heart, after all.
