Fashion Photography | Verillas + Ayyawear

It's been a while since I've last blogged, because my work life has been very hectic lately. I went from not having a day job and working on my business, to working at Office Depot and trying and failing to find much time for my business. Then, in the midst of all this, I was offered a part time photographer position for Verillas and Ayyawear. So I was trying to juggle three jobs, essentially. In the meantime, I've managed to successfully neglect the blog and other social media. It's about time for an update!

Preparing for Your Portrait Session | Couples Edition

Every photographer has their own idea of how one should prepare for a portrait session. I'm here to tell you that there is NO wrong way to prepare. Coming unprepared is the only way that can negatively affect your session. You might be a "go with the flow" kinda person, but having at least an idea of what you want will make it a whole lot easier for the both of us. Trust me.

The people I photograph (usually) aren't models. They're perfectly "normal" people with no more experience being in front of the camera than anyone else. I'm absolutely blessed with beautiful friends that let me subject them to this kind of torture. (Kidding, kidding.) I've been wanting to try something like this for a very long time. Feminine flower crown portraits are very popular at the moment, and I am in love with this style.
