How intimidating is it to hire a photographer?
I mean really, you’re asking a perfect stranger to photograph your family, to capture your memories, to play games with your children and to photograph you and your love kissing each other. Is it nerve wracking, wondering if the session will go well? Will you click with your photographer? Will she be good with kids? Will she understand the love between you? I get it. I understand. You’re hiring the photographer’s services, but you’re also hiring the person, the head and the heart.
So here I am. I’m just a girl, standing in front of you, asking you to trust me, (points for guessing the movie reference!) I’m a mom, a wife, a normal person who loves to photograph normal people. I’m not looking for perfection. I’m looking for you. Just you.
I laugh a lot during sessions, talk a lot about nothing and sometimes I get quiet while I contemplate my next move. I talk about myself and my kids and my husband. I joke around and if you don’t like sarcasm, you may not understand most of my jokes :)
But here’s the deal, I love what I do. I love my clients, most of them just become friends and then turn into family. Seeing my little clients grow is absolutely, hands down, my favorite thing ever. Hearing my name come out of tiny little mouths, letting them cling to me while I photograph their parents, showing them the back of my camera when I don’t even show their mom and dad…those are my favorites.
So come along with me, let’s chat and figure out how to capture your memories right now. Not a year from now, not when you have it all together, and definitely not when you have lost those last 5lbs, (or 15 or 40.) Not when your house isn’t so messy or when you’ve found the perfect dress to wear. Right now. I promise you, you’ll never regret it.
And after we figure it out…this is the girl you’ll meet. Most likely my hair will be in a ponytail and I’ll be wearing my tennis shoes, but pretty much, this is me. And I’m excited to meet you.
