I don’t say no to a pregnant woman. I love hearing ideas they have and seeing inspiration they find for their photo session. When this mom-to-be showed me her idea, that she’d found on Pinterest, I was a bit intimidated. In part, because I wasn’t on Pinterest (the shame!). Luckily she was super patient and able to sit very still while adjusting only her arms. The family portrait business has been busy this last year, but I haven’t had a maternity session for a while. Now I have four booked over the next month and I’m so excited to see what we come up with!
I first heard the term “previsualization” at 19 years-old in a large format photography class. The idea of “the ability to anticipate a finished image before making the exposure”. I’ll be honest, the zone system eludes me to this day and I don’t see the print in my minds eye the moment I snap it. But, when I’m photographing dogs, kids or weddings, as the session progresses I get an idea in my head of how these moments will looked displayed on the wall. To me, having that finished product to enjoy in a tangible way, everyday, is the most rewarding part of my job.
We’ll be displaying my portrait photography for the month of April. Stop in to see samples of the finished product that Anthology can make for your home. Even if it’s not a photo I took, bring us the images, art or objects you want displayed in your home and we’ll design custom framing that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come.
