The thing I love the most about photography is the artistry. I love the colors and light, the different ways to work an angle, how every part of it is subjective. Even if 2 photographers took a photo of the same model, it would still be different. For me, my job is seeking out the light and finding something that will make my clients happy. I live to make my subjects smile and laugh naturally during a shoot. That is when I love my job the most.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done a couple of engagement photo shoots in the past year that I loved, and instead of posing my subjects in a rigid and stiff manor, I would ask one of the couple to whisper something in their partner's ear, such as an inside joke or inappropriate comment, and every time it made the other person laugh in such a way that showed their shared humor. It always led to my favorite photos of the shoot, and it made us all relax and be comfortable with one another. I think those photos will be something they can look back on for decades and remember that joke, still laughing together.
