Or maybe there's a simpler answer like not everyone is an artist. Sobering. Maybe a little harsh. But that's the way it is.
Personally I'd tend to disagree. Not everyone has the native skills to be a *superb* artist, but I think everybody has some inner life that can be expressed artistically. It might not be groundbreaking, or of interest to anyone but the artist and perhaps their nearest and dearest, but that doesn't make their stuff not "art", whatever "art" means anyway.

The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.
