Photos, like memories and stories, are part of our legacy. We hold them close, we pass them down. It’s a gift to be able to share a visual of moments, details, people, places and things to those we love, so that they, too, can feel even a glimmer of the joy we feel when we reflect on those times.
That legacy starts with us as individuals. First and foremost we should celebrate ourselves. Have you ever gone looking for a photograph of yourself or of an individual you love to realize how few if any that you have. You may find blurry phone photos or you in the midst of a group of people. I enjoy creating portraits of individuals and capturing the essence of who they are as individuals. These portrait sessions are fun and are designed to see yourself in a new light. Do something special for yourself.
Glamour photography is photography that highlights beauty, sexiness, allure, dazzle and romance. I always have a consultation with my clients to find out what their goal of the portrait session is. Maybe it is a gift for a significant other or maybe its a challenge to work on self confidence. Grace and glamour is the goal.
Often when we think of couples photography we think of wedding portraits but there is so much more to couples that just the wedding day. Couples end up with piles of low quality selfies. Life gets chaotic and in the rush of our lives we often only photograph the milestones.It is important to celebrate your relationship. When it comes to photographs it is not only a bonding experience but you have a portrait hanging in your home to display as an expression of your love. Creating couple portraits is a fun memory you can look back with delight.
A pregnancy is something that only occurs a few times in your life and that is why it is so important to capture these extraordinary moments. It is a moment that can never be replicated. A maternity portrait will forever trigger beautiful emotions for yourself and the rest of your family including the remarkable child that you gave birth to.
He got down on one knee, pulled out a stunning diamond ring and you cried “yes”! Imagine the photos from this amazing experience as I am hiding with a long lens capturing every moment. Or perhaps you are engaged and have made the great choice to have engagement photos done. This allows me to get to know you in a more intimate setting and allows me to get personal insight into your relationship. Most people are a little uncomfortable around the camera but this experience will allow you to be relaxed and playful. It allows you to be at ease on your wedding day.
The wedding day is filled with so many sentimental moments; it could be a simple glance, a wonderful smile or the sweet interactions between your guests. I often hear that the bride and groom are so busy that they miss many of those special moments and they are glad I have captured them. Weddings are rare gatherings where family, friends and relatives are all in one place. Moments like these that are filled with love and laughter can be cherished for a lifetime.
It is so important to capture the precious moments of our wonderful pets. I encourage families to bring their pets along for their portrait sessions but I also love focusing on just your pet. It allows for your pets personality to shine by capturing their story through unique and expressive photography.
