Your privacy is 100% respected

Privacy is important, especially to parents, which I respect immensely.  My senior shoot from this past weekend was just that...the parents declined my offer to post a sneak peek on social media. I get that...these are your babies and their privacy is extremely important you.  So please NEVER feel badly about declining, that is precisely why I always ask.  Here is the backdrop though...it was pretty fab!

Photographing children and families

Since this blog is relatively new, it might look like I haven't had much experience with children and family photography - that couldn't be further from the truth! I have been photographing families since 2007 and LOVE IT!  I have 4 kiddos of my own, so I work well with people with short legs :)  Here are a few of my favorite family/kid photos!

Working with young children...

Children can be challenging, but it's not their fault.  When you take a child, dress them up in clothes that aren't comfortable, and ask them to cooperate and smile for a stranger they don't know...you're asking for trouble.  Having 4 kids of my own, I get that.  And to add to the mix, we moms/dads get all stressed out because they're not smiling, they're running amuck and so forth!  So how do you get good photos then?

Well, you let them be kids.  Let them play, let them be silly and yea, sometimes we bribe them with candy (per parents permission, of course).  We photographers do what it takes!  I find that following THEIR lead offers up some pretty amazing photos that will warm the cockles of your heart ;-) 

So don't stress, the photos will happen, just let them be kids and mom and dad...just breath!

Why I am good at photographing weddings...

Welcome to my blog!  Since having designed a BRAND new website this year, my old blog was sadly put to rest.  My NEW blog is up an running and you are reading my first post!  So, why am I good at photographing weddings. Well, most would think because I have great technical skills when it comes to photography, and that is true. However, it takes WAY more than that to be a good photographer.
