    This is why

    This is why I take pictures.

    They are what got me into Photography in the first place.

    I take pictures for other people because I cannot imagine them not having pictures like this.

    I want you to have images that make you smile and maybe even cry.

    It is important to me that you have what I have.

    Everyday moments slip by.

    I want to capture them.

    That is why I do it.

    I am watching you!

    I saw this little guy hanging out on his glass on my previous trip to the zoo but since I had my trusty (but not great for dark situations) zoom lens I had to be happy with just a silhouette.

    I was glad he decided to pose for me again when I had my 50mm lens (on another trip, I did not run home for my lens. I wanted to but did not…) which lets in an amazing amount of light. I cranked the ISO up and got this.

    I love it.

    Thank you mister Gecko.

    What I want from you.

    I wanted to share my thoughts on how we can work together to make your photography session with me turn out the best pictures of you and your family.

    First, relax. Children pick up on your unease and it shows on you and them in the pictures. So take a deep breath, find that happy place, and eat some chocolate if needed (it helps me).

    I have two boys and they do not like to cooperate for the camera, so if your children don’t want to smile for a complete stranger it does NOT bother me! They just need a little time to get to know me.

    Secondly, try to dress your children in clothing that they can get a little dirty. It is okay to dress them in nice clothes but make sure they are not so nice they can not feel free to be themselves. I love it when a child is so wrapped up in the world around them they forget I am even there! So let them explore a little bit. And that goes for the parents also. Please dress in a way that interacting with your children during the pictures will be possible.

    That brings me to my third and final thought.

    Interaction. I love it when parents get down with their children and interact with them during a shoot! A child receiving their parents attention gives the most beautiful smiles ever. Those looks of love really translate breathtakingly to pictures!

    So when you come to a session with me be prepared to be yourself and have some fun.

    Thank you.
