I’m guessing your answer is something like “YES ALL THE FREAKING TIME” – and I want you to know right now that is a totally normal way to feel, and that you are not alone.
In fact, I would say that 99.99% of my clients are nervous about having their photo taken. YUP! Almost every client says one of the following things to me at some point:
“I am so AWKWARD in photos...”
“I hate the way I look...”
“My husband is so stiff and hates having his photo taken...”
Having your photo taken is not an easy thing, and it’s my job to help you through that. You are not expected to be a model, or know how to stand in a flattering way, or where to place your hands!
All I ask of you is this.
During our time together, please embrace your loved ones with every single piece of love, joy and gratitude you feel for their presence in your life; and be present in these moments with me with your whole heart.
Your time with me is not about “stand here, look there, and say cheese”. It’s about taking a deep breath, and letting go all of your worries and fears; and about laughing, snuggling and talking with your loved ones with zero distractions. It's not as simple as smiling and looking at the camera, it's an experience; and I'll provide you with plenty of direction the whole time. And at the end of it, no matter what type of session you book with me – you’ll walk away with a gallery of images that are full of personality, and love and joy so real you can feel it - whether it's your wedding day, your sweet little baby or your family.
I'll be the first to say that I'm not for everyone. I'm for those who celebrate the beauty of little moments, and who want to remember what life feels like (not just what it looks like). So if you are the kind of person who loves wholeheartedly, who embraces happy tears, deep belly laughs and eye crinkles - welcome to my tribe!
