megan’s mini-session

What’s not to love about a sunny Sunday? Well, there’s even more for me to love when I got to spend it outside photographing a mini-session for Megan! Walking through crowded downtown Madison, Indiana.

This graduating art major needed some headshots for her final portfolio. After we captured the obligatory headshots, we ventured around the block for some more artsy, fun ones that really captured her personality.

Here are some of my favorites:

baby quinn

I was so excited after my session with baby Quinn this past Sunday near Madison, Indiana. Not only was this six-month old baby just overall happy, but she has such a distinct personality already! She really knew how to work her bright blue eyes to her advantage! I’m about halfway through the photos and wanted to post some of my favorites!

I feel like I have baby fever lately! With each session, a different little “person” emerges from these photos. I just love that their little personalities are shining through.

don’t rush a good photo

Many times clients begin their search for finding a photographer with great intentions. They look for someone who can match their own style and needs. Then, somehow a great shift happens. The focus changes from finding a perfect match of style to finding a perfect match for the wallet instead. Many photographers, I also do this, charge by an hourly rate. Clients often ask me if I’ll cut my rates in half for a 30-minute session rather than an hour. Depending on the shoot and customers needs, I’ll accommodate.

The purpose of this entry is to warn: Allow time to shoot.

Not only will the photographer feel rushed, but you, as a subject, will also. There is a big difference in a subject from the first frame to the last. I recently photographed a good friend of mine, Laura, who generally doesn’t like her picture taken. She was amazing. In freezing temperatures, we trotted throughout downtown Madison, Indiana to capture a few poses. I’ll post some more from her shoot later, but here is the difference between a first shot and one 30 minutes into the shoot.

In the first photos, a subject wants to recognize the camera exists and do what comes naturally, smile. But if you’re looking for a more photojournalistic style of photography, allow yourself time to adapt to being photographed. The end result is more natural, un-staged photographs.
