I love visually telling stories and capturing beauty. I love that I am independent and can support my family by doing my passion, and people appreciate my work. I get much more appreciation and satisfaction than i ever did at my old day jobs.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Family shoots, weddings, commercial shoots, delivery room photography for the VP of one of my largest clients, drone shots, drone video, product shots. I believe the way to make them special is to try and understand truly what the client is looking for. Not everyone has the same vision, or even have an idea of what they truly want. But you know when they are thrilled and you have gone above and beyond to capture the moment for them, because they refer you to all their friends and sing your praises.
