What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
First of all, Practice, practice... Additionally, we take online classes to train for photoshop, photography, as well as layouts of our storybooks and albums. We also spend a lot of time on the professional forums, where we are able to learn from our peers.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
First of all, Sarah & I aren't only mother-daughter, we truly are best friends. We love to work together, even though we have a different style, we are still cohesive, our styles blend. We originally started shooting children, and Sarah shot a wedding for a friend, I edited the images, we loved it so much, and every seemed to like our work, and asked us to do their wedding, and it just snowballed, and we have gotten busier and busier. We love what we do, and feel it shows in our work!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We are proud of every wedding, engagement and boudoir session we shoot. The last session we did was a pre-ceremony for a couple that had split up.
A couple found God, after they had been married and gone their separate ways. We agreed to document the pre-ceremony for them at half the price since they didn't have them money. It was very rewarding.
