Family Is Creating Memories Together

When families come to me for a photo session, I know they are not just coming for photos. They want to walk away with positive feelings and knowing that they built memories together in the half hour or hour that I spend with them. I have to work really quickly to help them feel comfortable with me and each other.

I had my own photo session recently for my engagement photos and even though I’ve professionally been photographing for almost 9 years, it was intimidating! You become very vulnerable when you are being photographed and it’s important that your photo clients feel comfortable and relaxed.

Photographers, I think what helps with this are 5 important keys:

  1. Confidence
  2. Connection
  3. Genuinely loving people
  4. Directing
  5. Common ground

The joy and genuine love that came from this family was evident and you could tell them deeply care about each other and I invite you to take a peek into their photo session together.

Blogstomp Has Just Made My Blogging Life a Little Bit (or a LOT!) Easier

I had heard of Blogstomp for awhile from fellow photographers in my field, but never ventured out to try it until now.

I had a birthday last month and my family asked me what I wanted as a gift.

You guessed it: BLOGSTOMP!

I love writing and blogging, but shied away from it because of how long it takes to resize and watermark images, let alone put them into cute little collages with borders.

Enter in Blogstomp! It’s a software program that makes the above easy-peasy in only a few steps. I upload my edited photos, select which ones I want collaged together and the system watermarks and resizes them for me.

In the past, this would have taken around an hour for a full set. Now I can finish things in under 10 minutes. Magic!

I am loving Blogstomp and hoping with this newly purchased software that I can get back to blogging, because I really truly do love it so much!

Here’s to seeing more on this blog! Cheers!
