The thing that attracts me to still images is their capacity for storytelling in an instant. What I do is directed, not posed. It’s not quite photojournalistic, either. I want to get a sense of who you are, and work together to convey it.
This often means that when we work together, I might give you some small activity to do as a team, or a game to play, or suggest some ridiculous thing to break the ice. It might mean that shoot in your home or at the bar where you met. It might mean that we hang out and have a cup of tea for a while before we shoot (or mid-shoot!). It might mean that we climb onto the roof of a building and watch the sun set together.
Okay, actually all of those things happened at my last engagement session and it was pretty spectacular. If that’s the sort of thing you’re into, I’m your girl. If you’d rather keep it a little lower key and just go have a picnic, I couldn’t be happier about that, either. I just want you to be you, and to let me show you what that looks like, because it’s beautiful.
