    I brought my infant in for his portrait and Kathryn was not only amazing with him, she played with him and made him feel comfortable. Our pictures turned out wonderfully.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Yes, I am frequently attending seminars, reading books, and speaking with other photographers about what is happening in photography and the business of photography. I am constently finding tidbits here or there to help me grow as a photographer and to keep our costs low.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I have always loved photography. My father has been a photographer for almost 50 years and I have studied at his side since I can remember. I started with landscapes, mostly waterfalls and beach/lighthouse scenes, and portraits of friends. As I have grown so has my passion for beautiful photography and I discovered that I love wedding photography as well. I was asked by friends to photograph their weddings because they could not afford professional photographers. The pictures turned out great and I have only gotten better from there. Now I try to focus on weddings because I love the atmosphere and getting the beautiful shots of the couple.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Look at a bunch of different sites for photographers around you and get a sense of an average price and quality. Choose your top 10 and call your top 5 for availability. if some are unavailable, call more from your list. Schedule consultations with at least 3 photographers before making your choice. You want to be sure you will comfortable with your choice following your around for a significant amount of time.

Know that digital files are more expensive than prints because they are easier to move and copy. If there is a style you like, or several photos you like, bookmark them or write down the URL and show them to the photographer you hire to help with ideas. They can also help you narrow down choices because the photographer can tell you if they can do that type of photography. Make sure you know what it is you like about each photo.
