Presenting images with personality

Your subjects look so natural? Were you just lucky and caught the moment or was there more to it?

A truly talented photographer can get even the stiffest subjects to loosen up for the camera. If there ever was a time to pick an experienced photographer over a lesser one, this is it. When it comes to photography, experience and the ability to bring out the best in people is proportional to the quality of the relationship and the product. I spend a lot of time with you before your event and I become “your best friend.” I also spend a lot of time studying new techniques, knowing how to turn crises and meltdowns onto opportunities, and ways to engage my subjects to get that smile and spark everyone wants to see in his or her photos. This photographer has spent decades combining those talents and more to offer you outstanding images and great service.

Joan made the photo shoot both comfortable and enjoyable. She gave clear directions about how to be prepared for it. During the shoot, which included many photos of many types, her suggestions for how to pose comfortably made the photos so much more effective. Our son gave us this photo shoot as a gift for helping he and his prepare for their wedding. We were delighted but inexperienced with posing for photos. Joan made this a pleasure and so easy to do. We will enjoy these photos so much.
