My pictures all tell a story about where we are or what we are doing - I love to get a sequence so that the viewer feels as if they attended the event. For weddings, that means watching the bride become radiant as she does her hair, makeup, and finally the dress. For the groom a peek at him before to see if he clear and confident or slightly scared and nervous. The posed shots of family, of course, but the unexpected natural moments are far more fun. My favorite shots of late are when they think they are done and just sit and relax. Doing senior pictures at the barn has shown a variety of styles from very casual and relaxed to elegance and grace. Each portrait should reflect the person's personality, not just me as a photographer making a statement.
At horse shows, it is all about timing as the horse jumps its courses. I like to sneak candid photos while the kids are getting their last minute coaching tips, their boots polished up with a lucky towel, or a brief " I love you" from Mom.
Look through my pictures and see what you think! I'd love feedback as I continue to grow in artistry in photography.
