The creative process. That time where you go from a broad idea to a solid vision. Its just something about bringing a client or even my own idea to life. When you see a clients smile when you've made their vision something real there's nothing like it.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done weddings, events, maternity, product, and portraits of course. With all of them I try to not make them stressful, the clients get there energy from you as the photographer. Just have to continue to talk to them and encourage them they are doing a great job. One of my last portrait jobs, my client (a friend ) was having a difficult time in front of the camera she was trying to be a model or something shes seen and it wasn't working so I stopped and told her " Lets just get you to be you " and she started to just be herself and was SO much more comfortable being silly and random and those were the BEST shots of the day and she had an amazing time.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
No awards yet, but I'm working toward it now. I have gotten recognized for some event work I did for I did with a non profit out here in the area for the second time.
