So I'm still using friends and family to build my portfolio, this last Saturday I did a shoot with my friend and her 3 year old daughter. I went through the post-processing and picked out the best to show on my facebook and website, and 3 of the best on here. Then I got a little lax as far as candid and ones that will be amusing down the road, it was difficult as her daughter was not cooperating and any smile actually looked more like she was constipated. It was frustrating because I've done photos of her in my makeshift studio and she did really well... maybe it was the heat and the dress and late in the afternoon when she would normally be napping. But I came out with 42 photos for her to have and enjoy, which I felt was pretty good for a difficult session. She is pushing for all of them, even the not so great ones, I guess she wants to go through and pick ones to share on her instagram and facebook..
I'm not sure if I should, and if I shouldn't I am not exactly sure how to tell her. She's done sessions with some other photographer she claims is really good and does a lot of work, who told her he'd have like over a 100 photos to give her (that was like late last year and she so far only has like 10).
What do you do when family or friends push for all photos?
