One of the most common questions I get from clients and photographers is if I give my clients alcohol to help them relax before a shoot.

My answer is always NO! A big fat NO… but it may not be for the reasons you think.

Yes, of course I want to avoid droopy eyes, drunk clients and liability issues. That however, is not my main factor for my answer.

The real reason I say no alcohol is because I don’t want my clients to numb themselves. I want the women to feel nervous, excited anticipation and their adrenaline flowing. After all, aren’t all those feelings synonymous with experiencing something out of your comfort zone?

When you do things out of your comfort zone, you grow. You change. You are LIVING.

Why would you numb yourself from all of those amazing things?

Something to think about.


PS… this is me and my family LIVING this last week. We are all floating in the Dead Sea together. What a week of adventure it was!
