What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

The secret to taking a great photograph is not to rush the photo but instead wait for it. Taking a great photograph varies on the person(s) in the photograph and the photographer needs to be able to adapt and understand that different personalities photograph differently.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

We always start by asking clients if they had a specific vision in mind, a preference in outdoor setting, if they prefer morning or afternoon tones in lighting, we ask about children and when "happy times" are for those children, along with outfit prepping, and more!

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most about what I do is that I get to work hands on with people, I love when I can get someone to open up and break lose of the bubbles they put up, I love when I can make children smile and look at the camera because I am being so goofy, I love that no matter where my clients are in their lives that they will always have memories to look back on that I helped create.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business after going to my first ever photoshoot for my three month old daughter. That day my outlook on photos changed forever. It took six hours, ten diaper changes, lots of groans from dad, and a bunch of sweat just to finish the session and after all that we were left with only five useable photos. It was in that moment after the shoot that I realized just how important photos were and I wanted every single family on earth to be able to have them too.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients should choose me because I will go above and beyond. I have never been late or cancelled a photoshoot to this day. I will not time cap a photoshoot if I feel we have not got all we needed or if children are needing breaks. I am good with people and have a warm and happy personality which adds to the experience not just the end results. Lastly, I truly care- I want you to love these photos and I want you to have a great time.
