The Select Few

Some of my favorite shots are not necessarily my clients favorites.  I might like it because I remember how difficult it was to get that kid to smile like that.  Or I impressed myself with some lighting technique. Or I did an amazing job on the post processing of the image.  No client will ever be able to see what you saw at that very moment you decided to click the camera, flag them image through the culling process, post process that image and then finally publish that image for the world to see.  Well, at least your clients to see.

I used to be excited when my images were at least in focus so when I culled through the images I would pick every single one that was in focus.  Now that I've got the focus thing down I can't show all the images to a client of their family shoot.  Sometimes I would have 300 images from one hour family session.  It would just baffle them if I showed all the images to them!  Now when I select an image to show it has to be more than just great lighting and fancy focus.  There has to be a connection!  That image as to make you stop and make you admire it.

Located in West Tamarac, my studio can accommodate small families for group and individual portraits.  If you prefer the park or beach, I have several locations I can recommend based on what kind of scenery you like.

Be sure to check the weather before booking an outdoor photo session.  Depending on the forecast we may have to reschedule your shoot due to weather.
