Have we mentioned that we do family portraits? And newborns? And Maternity sessions? And… heck. Pet Portraits? And I know we should probably have some wording on this website about how we ‘capture the true emotion and essence of your family’ or ‘we capture your personality, your quirks, your You’… um.
Well. I just want to make nice photos. um. Really nice photos?
Whether it’s in Arizona, Pennsylvania, here in Georgia, or anywhere else – having photos of your family is important. Sure I’m a photographer so of course I believe that – but over the past few months we’ve really started focusing on booking more maternity, newborn, and family portraits. With all of those sessions and the upcoming birth of our own son – I’m only now really appreciating family portraiture. Not just from a photography stand point – but from the simple viewpoint of having a good photo, and being IN a good photo with the people you love the most.
We’re regularly asked, “What camera do you recommend I buy?” – and our answer is simply the one you’ll use most often. Because a great & expensive camera is useless if you don’t actually pick it up and take photos with it.
Now obviously there is a difference between hiring a Professional Photographer and just taking family photos with your point & shoot on a tripod, or a table – and although we suggest that everyone hire a photographer every now and then – we even MORE suggest that you take the time to make your own photos of the people you love. Because any photographer will tell you that the best photos are always the ‘in-between’ shots.
And compared to the two hours that we have with you during a session, you have opportunities everyday to take photos that we could never dream of making.
So yes – we’re always happy when you hire us and we love making beautiful photos of you and your family – but you should be making those photos that we can’t. Those are the best ones anyways.
