I love capturing moments. I always think that a photograph is a moment in time captured forever. I love to capture the raw emotion of someone crying doing a speech, a partner proposing or even the joy of kids running around a park as I photograph them just being them. In this day an age with technology we are only have photographs that are so posed. That is why I love to capture people just being themselves in the moment. Its something they like to look back on as we grow older.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many family portraits in the past. Each and every photo session is different and special in their own way. I like to make the parents at ease (they are always stressing over the littlest things) and just try and calm them down and even tell a joke here or there. The kids are the fun part. I love letting them be themselves running around, screaming (if they are outside) and just burning all their energy. This is great because the photographs capture the kids being themselves and great for the parents because the kids will be nice and tired out just in time for bed time! I have also photographed hundreds of events. Each event is different but I like to help out during the event as well. Depending on the client some are super stressed out so I try to help them by organising cake times with the venue or even just helping clean up something so simple helps.
