Prompting, not Posing
LOOKING FOR CONNECTION
I am known for capturing the in-between moments and people’s true smiles. Instead of posing, I prefer to give prompts. An example would be to go into a beautiful area such as a park or wedding venue and have them look at me and then on the count of three do something crazy or slightly embarrassing! Even though the idea sounds quite silly, it always results in great photographs of people smiling, laughing and being conveyed as their true selves instead of the old “Sears Portrait Studio posed smile”. For couples, I also love offering prompts to slow things down and get the beautiful romantic shots that show the connection between the two of them. Prompts bring out the natural reactions which are what I love to photograph.
