I love the magic of creating and collaboration. Whether working solo or in a group, the art of producing a photoshoot is absolutely amazing. Watching everyone's job and every aspect of the shoot come together from styling to lighting to set is so pleasing to me.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done various types of shoots. For product photography I love to make it special by doing my own styling and cooking and baking, making props from scratch! For lifestyle shoots I always want my subject to be comfortable. I always take short breaks for conversation to keep it light and casual between the subject and myself, like we are forming a friendship! This is especially good for people who are not used to being photographed.
