A lot of people think being a photographer is rather glamorous with adventure and excitement at every turn. I won't lie to you...but living life in the fast lane isn't always as it seems... so I thought I would give you a little insight into the lifestyle of rock star photographer ...
Let me peel back the layers, and let you have a glimpse into my world ...
I mix with the best ....
And I clean up, when it comes to glamour
it's not easy but someone has to do it....
My kids normally get this look when I bring out the camera... It's something that looks like a deer in the headlights, and a panicked look of having no where to escape to... sigh....
Anyway my eldest daughter must have been a good mood, when I asked her to come over so I could just "try some stuff out". They generally know when I want to "try some stuff out", that they have to do as they are told, and not moan about me making them pose, which to them "feels weird"!!! I have tried to explain that photos just don't happen, so its good that I can use them as guinea pigs, and get an idea of what works. I think these worked... I wanted to "try some stuff" with backlighting and some posing techniques .... And thanks to my daughter Emma's flatmate Jay too... I know it felt strange, and you felt self conscious, but you look fab. See! Trust me!
I wanted to extend the background on this image of Emma, which I love ... so....
Colour or Black and White? I couldn't decide!
I've got lots of props and fabric and things to dress up in too....
I love negative space... leaves you room to play around with textures and things!
Keeping them on task was at times... erm ... trying....!
And then it kind of all went to custard, when Emma got hold of the camera... grubby mirror and all...!!! But we manage to have a laugh... and so will you... book in for a glamour portrait session... You will even have your makeup up and hair done! email me on email@example.com or you can even find me on facebook.... here
In collaboration with Kate from Top Kat Photography, on the Hibiscus Coast, I shot some maternity photos, with a new Mum and Dad to be. Ursula from Ursula Edwards Makeup Artist, did her magic, and we were ready to go. (I wish I had to skill of applying makeup so beautifully!)
Both indoors and out, we managed to get some gorgeous shots of Viv and Jack, and their baby bump, who is now here, and named Sophie, and she's a gorgeous wee bundle of love too!
Great time to get images of just Dad to be too.
So full of expectation and looking forward to meeting their darling wee daughter.
If you want to find out more about a Maternity shoot give me a call or drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I also offer Birth Photography and a Lifestyle session after your baby is born. Or you can have all three in one package. I am very limited to the amount of births I photograph, so if its something you are thinking about, contact me as soon as possible to have a chat to see if its for you.
I believe in working with you to create images you will love, and cherish, because "It's all about you!"
