I can't help but feel better about sil "family pictures".

So sil, her bf, and two kids came and joined us for Thanksgiving dinner. So it was sil and her family, my other sil and her family, me, dh, our 3 kids, mil, fil, and bil. So all afternoon sil was saying she wanted to do family pictures........I take most of their pictures for them, before it was "them" I took pictures of her and her dd, now its sil, her bf, her dd, and their ds....I did their maternity pictures, I have taken pictures of my neice, and now I have taken pictures of their new baby boy, I have not gotten any negative remarks about my pictures from them or their friends or family, a majority of people enjoy my work....so yes I was a little upset that they didn't ask me to take pictures for them. I was in my room when sil called her dd to take pictures, they sat where they wanted to and everyone took out their cellphones, these cellphones actually take really good pictures, however they aren't good enough to enlarge and hang on your walls....so after a few days I learn that they didn't take a single good picture, not ONE! So yeah I am horrible for being happy about their photo fails........maybe next tie they will come to me again.

You would fit in perfectly with my husband's family. They get their feelings hurt over the smallest things.

We only do cell pictures in my family, for yes the cameras on the phones work very well. They look great. I enlarge them to 8X10s. ;)

You may think the pics don't look good, but they may think they are wonderful. ::shrugs::

Yes, you are horrible for being happy about that. What a petty thing to care about.

It is a small thing yes, I agree there.........and before their son was born they were talking with me about how they wanted me to take Christmas pictures for them, then I learn they would rather a stranger who will charge them an arm and a leg to take their family pictures, I would do it for free and capture the "real" them, and give them the same quality picture as a professional. So as small as it does seem, it is pretty big considering this is my passion I want to turn into my career.

I'm thinking you either don't do as good a job as you think or your shitty attitude has become too much for them to bear if they've decided not to let you do their photographs anymore.

Sil told me personally that not one of the pictures came out good.

 Maybe they don't think you are as good a photographer as YOU think you are.
