Model is a term I use when I reference clients because, let’s face it, if you’re taking direction for an image I’m shooting, I am treating you like a model. Brides and Grooms act as models, event guests act as models, and senior portraits are still considered models. You don’t have to be a Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, or Adriana Lima to be a model. Each of you have a unique look to capture and that is exactly what I intend to do. We all have our insecurities, but if you can trust me to capture you the way you should be viewed, you will see – you’re model.
I met Matt and Kimberly from their wedding approximately 4 years ago. While I didn’t truly meet them, I actually was a second shooter at their wedding. They did all the decorating themselves for their wedding and made everything picture perfect. They had a table at their wedding for SSgt. Charles Cartwright, which sealed my suspicions about these two being the real deal.
Sometime in 2016, I lost my interest in photography. Taking photographs, processing photographs, or anything to do with photography in general. I am not sure if there is a deeper meaning to this back and forth, but nevertheless, I continue to take photos. I asked a single pregnant mother if she would allow me to take photos of her and her daughter. I think at first she was reluctant, but whatever changed her mind, I am glad she chose me.
