I love the ability to be free... Free from punching a clock, freedom from office politics, freedom from the daily grind that ya just don't look forward to. I love being able to work from home (in-home studio). I love being able to travel and visit places or people that I wouldn't have normally interacted with- or even known existed. I love being able to do what I love, what I'm passionate about, and what fulfills me.
What I love most, however- enrichment. Seeing that look on a client's face when they see their images for the first time. Seeing them share MY work on social media, being so proud and bragging about not only the occasion itself, but trumpeting my praise to all that will hear. It's the knowing that I enriched their lives, even if I was only apart of it for a short while, to capture a certain moment and allowing it to last forever, or to capture a certain feel or mood, and allowing them to see themselves differently than they had ever seen before.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done just about everything- from Product to Boudoir. From Solo/Headshots to Corporate Events. Landscape. Fantasy/Cosplay. Sports. You name it... And what makes a Session with my special is that each session is tailored to YOU. Not just the scene/location. Nor just the outfit and look/feel of the images. But everything. Everything is about you, and tailored specifically to you.
I am naturally a very outgoing person. I am also intuitive and empathetic. I get to know you, I get a feel for you, and I tailor every aspect of your session to fit what would give you the perfect experience. From what I'm wearing (are you more comfortable relating to someone in jeans and a tee, or someone in slacks and dress shoes?), to the level of energy I'm giving during our time together (whether it is high-energy hyping you up, or a bit more quiet and reserved, calmly guiding you from pose to pose), to the music that we play during the session. Nothing goes overlooked, and you get the perfect session, no matter what "perfect" means to you.
