I still have major nerves that almost make me say no to people, if I know them I don't feel so bad but when strangers come and ask me to do their pictures I get stomach knots, I get worrying what if I dont direct them properly, what if the pics turn out horrible, what if they don't like the end result and don't recommend me.. is anyone else like this?

Thank you Jaydinsmum for my beautiful siggy

YES! Whenever I take pictures I am always surprised at the result. I know I need to get more confidence but it's hard!

I used to feel the same way! When someone would contact me thru FB (that's the only advertisement I'm doing right now), I'd call them but I couldn't do it without drinkin a beer or mixed drink first, lol. It does get better but you have just go with it. I bet they are just as shy/worried as you are when they're getting their pics done, worrying if their smile looks stupid and what not.

we are our own worst critic.

but you should be honoured that you were asked. most people don't have any idea when it comes to taking good photo's. they obviously thing you have the knack, otherwise they wouldn't have asked.
