Am I the right photographer for you? Well, I don't know. Let me tell you a little about my past clients and then you can decide if you think we would make a good fit.
*My clients LOVE details. And so do I. In my world there are two different types of details - the details people add to their family shoots or weddings that show personality and provide authenticity like handwritten name cards or personalized party favors. And the other type of detail, the eyelashes, freckles, wrinkles, the birds, the dew on the wine glass, the sneaky hugs, handholding, tiny toes, the crying baby. Which "details" do I capture? BOTH. I want it all! To me, that is what photography is. Looking beyond the obvious and catching the memory! So if you like those types of details, I might be your photographer.
*Movement. I love images where you can see motion; I love seeing LIFE in my images. I don't want you to just stand there and smile! I want you to laugh, hug, spin and smile. Forget that I am there and just be! Kiss her, dance with her, throw your head back and laugh. I know the idea of doing this in front of the camera can cause some anxiety, I get it. But chill, this is what I do. I make people comfortable. With direction and a little sarcasm we get it done.
*Everyone of my shoots is carefully planned and designed in one form or another. We spend a lot of time talking about what the client wants to portray, what feelings they are looking to capture. After I have tried to get their same vision through my mind, we talk about locations and styling that might provide the vibe they want.
* We then talk about clothing. Clothing is a VERY important part of a shoot. VERY important. Got it people? I am not saying we need to go out and buy a new wardrobe, but I am just saying: "Think about it." Let me help you to create the vision you want. My clients often shop at Free People, Anthropology and Urban Outfitters.
*My clients appreciate art. They like colors, patterns, food and music. They don't just want a picture; they want something unique, special and artistic that connects with who they are.
*The wonderful people I work with are willing to invest, travel, wakeup early, get out of their comfort zone, and be spontaneous. They are not only willing to, but they WANT to. They want to be and are active participants in this creative process.
