Families at their Authentic Selves

As I’m preparing for a photoshoot where I am on the other side of the camera, as the subject, I’m beginning to freak out. What do I wear? How should I do my hair? Can I lose five pounds between now and Saturday?

How many times have I heard these questions from clients? Daily.
We’re so unfamiliar with how the world perceives us, because we’re well, busy living. But a camera turned on you can feel like a spotlight into the unknown.

The way I view my clients, and the way in which I try to capture them is as authentic, real beings. I try to capture the love among them and their families. I hope to freeze a flash of their true spirit in time.

Keeping this in mind, I’ll try to give up a little control and trust the experts that I’ll be working with this weekend, just as my clients trust in me. Wish me luck!
