What's it like to work with me? Eeeek! I think I'm goofy, silly, giggly, clumsy, and sometimes fumble with my words. But this Mom seems to think otherwise. Enjoy this interview I did with a self-proclaimed perfectionist Mom of 2 .

How was having a summer portrait session different than the fall?
Figuring out to what to wear is easier in the summer. I like that it was warm and I didn't have to worry about the girls being chilly and needing a coat cause I don't want a picture of coats.
How am I different than others? What makes me stand out?
I like that you are very laid back and calm. I like that I don't feel rushed. You aren't frazzled by my kids not cooperating even though it irritates me. I let it go cause I know it doesn't bother you, with some people it would and that would make me uneasy and less relaxed.
How would you describe a portrait session with me?
I like that you have a plan in mind of what you want, but are flexible enough to capture the spontaneous as well. I'm a planner so I like that you have somewhat of an idea of what you are wanting otherwise people lose their patience waiting for a photographer to figure out how they want to pose people or even non posed things.
How would you describe working with me?
I like that you encourage us to just be us and do what comes natural in how we interact. When you get a good shot you tell me, it makes me excited and keeps me engaged, and my anticipation high of seeing the final results.
What worries or fears did you have going into the session?
I'm a natural worrier and deep down a perfectionist. I always worry about if my clothing choices are good enough, will I look okay in the photos typical woman worries when having your photograph taken. Those are all ones I had before hand but then I remember the ones I've done before and remember you aren't going to let me look stupid whether it's my clothes or how I'm posed there is a big amount of trust there so then I stop spazzing out and enjoy myself.
How did you feel after your session?
I always feel excited after a session it's like Christmas and I can't wait to see what they look like and 9 times out of 10 it's the most amazing ego boost in the world. I have people coming up to me and telling me how much they love the pictures and how well they turned out and how good I look etc. It's like the biggest high ever and erases all the previous worries.
What are you planning to use your pictures for?
The majority of my pictures get stuck on the cloud and I forget to do stuff with them however, I also print them out mostly around holidays and I make the hubby a calendar every year called a year of his girls with pictures of me and the girls so I always use them for that. These will be hung on the wall I'm wanting to update all our pictures and incorporate more of our second child because right now all of the ones on the wall are all of our first born.
