Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. First - check our the website or portfolio the provider offers - make sure you like their style.
Second - talk to the photographer who you will be working with - can they communicate, do they listen, can you feel comfortable with them
Third - confirm their industry participation in organizations and groups - what are they currently studying, do they present their knowledge to others.
Last - trust our instincts - if it doesn't feel right go to someone else - the cheapest person may not be able to provide the image you want and need.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. There are many photography styles and methods - some are easier to understand than others. It is important that you understand the style that the photographer delivers consistently to others.
My style is characterized by colors, bright and good lighting, shiny materials - my model's skin is soft with great color - bright eyes - good hair separation and defination - images are shot under lights whenever possible to give catchlights in the eyes.
The jewlery is sharp and emphasized - bling is good and not to be ignored, the clothing is draped nicely - I pay attention to the entire presentation.
Check out my website for examples and compare the images there to images made by others. Make your decision based on actual samples. Demand that you get what you need and want.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. My favorite story - the one that moved me so much happened when doing a glamour shoot for a 15 year old autistic young woman. Her mother was there, of course, and we had wonderful makeup and hair people there as well who each did a really outstanding job.
She looked super and felt it too - the images came out great - really great!
Her mom told me later that the day we spent was the best day in her daughter's life - I can be sad about that in some sense but we are all born with and develop challenges - I am glad that this was one I could help with!
I make a difference. Sensitivity, caring, warm and sharing you can trust.
