We have Claire's second birthday party in May and I am of course going to be taking my camera with me. When I first started this photography gig I took photos of everyone and usually tagged them on FB. Now that I am a little better I am contemplating whether or not I should be taking photos of other kids or not. The reason I get concerned is the last time I did this I went over to the parents' house and I saw about 5 photos I took hanging in frames on their walls. All crappy because they pulled them off of facebook.

Is there a good way to handle this? Should I give them the hi res files? Should I avoid taking photos of their kids (alone) at all? Should I offer to order prints for them if they pay me for the cost of the print? I love the idea of showing off my skills but I don't want them to just run with the one or two photos I take.

Thank you to *Kiliki* for the pretty siggy!

I would watermark anything you put on FB... low opacity, but in places that they can't crop it (under chins, across foreheads) and then on your FB page when you post them you could put a little note saying for people to contact you if they'd like a copy.
Sucks when people print from FB... the quality is SUCKY!
