Bailey Tann received her first DSLR with support from her high school peers and educators. Since she has expanded her portfolio, working with galleries, artists, restaurants, realtors, and individuals. She specializes in event and portrait photography and is passionate about capturing her travels.
I love capturing a different perspective than what others (or a client) may see, and telling those stories. I do a lot of portrait photography, recently with many senior girls graduating from high school. I love to show each of these girls their personal beauty in an honest way that represents who they are. Connecting with people is absolutely my favorite part, whether that is during an event, a wedding, or an individual shoot.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
When doing portrait shoots, I like to get to know the client as best as I can in the brief period of time we get to spend together. I paruse pinterest boards to get an idea of their interests and expectations, and I try to come to the shoot from a personal perspective. For example, I may notice a client seems to be into local beers or coffee. I then try to find local locations where they can interact and have fun, while also taking candid images, to best make them comfortable.
