This episode is a playback of a prior episode: PF 068 – 3 Signs Portrait Photography Isn't for You.
Our daughter Tové celebrated her 16th birthday and that's a big milestone for a teenage girl. She had a wonderful time celebrating with her friends, celebrating with family, and celebrating at home. All of those celebrations took an incredibly surprising amount of time and we just couldn't fit in a podcast this week.
If all the birthday celebrations weren't enough, we also did a home studio photo session this weekend. Lee needed some fitness photos for her blog, featuring both running and now kickboxing. Tové wanted some specific birthday photos, which included the odd combination of bubbles and confetti.
It made a horrible mess, but that's part of why we have seamless paper for these sessions. It's also why Tové gets her photos last.
