Family photos aren’t just a customary tradition during the holiday season when everyone comes together, but it is a celebration…
I always enjoy taking family portraits as the natural energy and affection surrounding the family makes for great images.
No matter where you are these days it seems as though you will find somebody taking a picture with their phone or digital camera and every new mom and Uncle Joe are calling themselves “photographers”. Now I’d hate to burst your bubble if this sounds like you but just because you have played around with a fancy camera or have taken a few great pictures with an iPhone this doesn’t qualify you as a professional photographer. Unfortunately, thanks to modern day technology and social media we are used to seeing a flood of mediocre images every day and the world is being taught that this is what photography looks like now. This just isn’t true!
Melissa Erickson, a writer with GateHouse Media News Group, contacted my portrait studio wanting child and family photography advice from…
Many times my clients’ orders are covered as a result of a baby shower gift or a wedding shower gift, or simply a gift of appreciation. Now, to make this process simpler, I have created the “Gift Registry” to help those exact people.
You know, most times that people are new to a studio experience they are nervous. I understand that. You are in the center stage with someone staring at you, what a self-conscious feeling! Having been a model many years ago I worked through that feeling. I have been there so I get that and I help my clients through that awkward feeling.
“Being a photographer means I get to be a part of so many families and I love knowing that I can create something that reminds you of your love for them. Each moment is priceless and we all need to stop once in a while to capture those moments for posterity to remind us what adds true meaning to our lives.”
I’m very excited to announce that one of the portraits from the “Images From the Homefront” exhibit has been selected to go on display at the Irvine Fine Arts Center as part of its All Media 2008 Show.
