I love seeing the reactions of my models and clients when I show them the photos I just captured of them. Their reactions are always surprised and happy which warms my heart and reminds me why I love what I do. Their opinion matters the most to me since it is them I am taking the picture for and I want to make sure that they are getting their moneys worth and are enjoying their session as well.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done shoots for graduation pictures to prom pictures to picture for local upcoming rappers. Although all of these shoots are different, to make them special, I talk to the model or client and ask them what they want, such as location preference, concept, and if they need any props. If they do not know any of these things, I always have different ideas in mind and they usually love what I come up with for them based on the information they give me.
