Well, if you’re anything like me then you don’t love being in front of the camera. I know that most of us are probably pretty insecure about getting our photos taken, including me. That’s why, as a photographer, I really try to make it FUN for you! Those stiff, posed photos do not do anyone justice in my opinion. I want to capture YOUR personality and YOUR true expressions. I want you to be comfortable in front of the camera, instead of dreading how the images are going to turn out.
That’s why I use posing prompts! So, in a session with me, there will be lots of moving! It seems counter-intuitive to move while a photographer is trying to take a still image. But I promise you, your images will turn out SO much better and you will be SO much happier with how you look and feel if you’re moving! There are maybe 1 or 2 times in the whole session when I’ll have you still to get that one shot that everyone wants with you looking at the camera. But in my opinion, the images YOU’LL love are the ones where you can see emotion. The ones where you’re laughing and running. The ones where your kids are hugging you so tight and giggling because you’re tickling them. Those are the images you’ll remember and want to display in your home.
With families, I have the kids move a ton! Mom and dad will stand cuddled up just looking at each other and the kids will run around in circles! We have tickle fights and tackle each other! And there will definitely be lots of hugs and kisses. With my couples you’ll be dancing, walking, running, whispering in each other’s ears. You’ll be trying to knock each other over and you’ll even maybe lift each other up! And let’s not forget about the eskimo kisses!
So come into your session with an open mind and ready to have some FUN! I love creating beautiful and meaningful images for you and your families to have forever and I believe that the more candid the images are, the more you’ll love them. So, who’s ready to try out some posing prompts with me!?
