Why did you choose to have a Mommy and Me Session? So many times I am the one taking the pictures and am not in the pictures. I wanted to treat myself to a session where I could just have fun with my son. He often talks about our previous sessions with "Debbie" so I knew he would enjoy himself.
How am I different than other photographers? What makes me stand out? After our first session with you, my husband said, "I like that she just takes pictures." His statement confused me because all photographers take pictures, but he said that he really liked that you didn't spend all of the time having us pose. You just let my son run all over and jump and hang from trees.
How would you describe a portrait session with me? The experience. You are definitely prepared - you know the area where the pictures are being taken and have an idea of where it would be good to go to get great pictures, but you are also laid back. You are willing to let the session deviate from any plan that you may have going into it. That attitude is so appreciated because my child is strong-willed to say the least, and you have a great way of letting him think he is in control all while managing to get great pictures while he plays with sticks and roars at you.
How would you describe working with me personally? I love how much fun you have at our sessions. You truly love photography and working with families. That comes through in the sessions and the pictures.
What worries or fears did you have going into the session? When my husband is involved, I worry about his mood! He hates that I make him go to these sessions - another good reason for the Mommy & Me session :). You manage to put him at ease, which is nice. I worry that my son will cooperate but again you manage to turn around any mood that he may be in.
How did you feel after your session? Relieved that my son was not too crazy and that you seemed to have a good time with how crazy he is.
How did you feel when seeing your pictures for the first time? I always love them and am amazed at what good pictures they are. The picture with my son hanging on the tree has the most likes that I have even gotten from a picture on Facebook. :)
What are you planning to use your pictures for? I have framed many of the pictures, so many that I might run out of wall space. I also used them for holiday cards and a Father's Day present.
