I cannot tell you how many times I've had couples tell me they are "awkward" or feel "nervous" in front of a camera. It's so understandable! It's nerve wracking thinking this stranger will be taking photos of you! Thankfully I get it and I try my best to do whatever makes you guys feel most comfortable during your photo session. I will never ask you to do something at your session that you don't want to do! I promise! I know that every couple is so different so I try to take time to get to know you throughout the booking process (I'll for sure follow you on IG) and during our session, it helps all of us to feel more comfortable with each other!
My couples sessions are at least an hour long, this helps you guys warm up in the beginning and by the end almost everyone I've photographed feels WAY more comfortable and ok with the camera being around.
One of the ways I help you combat the "awkwardness" is by giving tons of direction on what to do. I don't want you feeling weird standing there not knowing how to stand or where to look! I also pride myself on trying to scout and choose photo locations that aren't too crowded so you don't have to feel like strangers are watching you. Once you book with me I'll send you my location choosing guide and we'll pick the perfect spot! I have so many of them!
I hope I can capture beautiful photos for the two of you to cherish forever! Weather that be documenting your engagement, pregnancy journey, bridal portraits, updated photos to hang in your home, or just a special time in your life! Let's do it!
