Hi there friends! I am SUPER behind on blog posts of my recent sessions – and I have every intention to catch up, but in the meantime I wanted to take a second to talk about what I do when I pick up my camera.
Now. A lot of you might think. Well. You’re a photographer, so naturally, you take photos for people. This is technically true, yes.
However, the way I see it is a little different. I not only take photographs, but I turn those photographs into priceless works of art. When I plan out a session in my mind, I have a vision for that session. I know what to look for in the scenery, in the expressions, in the positioning, and most importantly, in the light. I take all of that and wrap it together and go forward with the session, being careful to capture just the right raw images so I can do incredible things with them later.
Once I put the camera down, the end is not in sight. In fact, my work on the session is JUST beginning. My goal is to provide people with images they will cherish and love until the end of time. That they can hang on their walls as irreplaceable, handcrafted works of art – featuring what else, but their very own family.
I spend many hours pouring over the images from a session, selecting the ones that stand out to me and invoke emotion. From there I adjust them as needed, until I have a piece of art staring back at me, that many times I can not WAIT to share with my clients.
I very, very rarely will show a before and after shot, but felt I could make an exception with this image I edited of my own daughter today. If you didn’t see it earlier on my Facebook page make sure to head over there and follow us for all our updates.
The first image is a straight out of the camera raw file, the second image is after I have adjusted it in a program called Lightroom, and the third is the final edit.
So when you book a session with me, please know that not only are you booking my time to take your photographs, but you are also purchasing my time to turn them into works of art.
Thank you for all your love and support! I truly appreciate each and every one of you!
