Family Photographer Los Angeles // Drawing emotion out in a photo

Beyond good lighting and composition, what makes a good photo?  Emotion.  We all know that fake smile kids give.  Yes, their eyes are open.  They are looking at the camera.  BUT, it’s dead.  There’s no emotion to draw in the viewer.

This is where your photographer comes in.  The photographer needs to know when to interact and when to be a silent observer.  It’s different in every situation.  sometimes a situation calls for words like ‘poopy diapers’ to be thrown around.  Other times, photographers notice something that is happening and they don’t want to be noticed.  This is where maybe a more serious emotion might be happening.

One thing I’ve learned is that it helps to have something to interact with.  In the case of these photos, it’s their dog.  They love Louie and he gave us something to laugh about and someone to cuddle with.  So be creative, how can you draw out emotion?

Long Beach Photographer // Around the Neighborhood

I’m starting a new series for the last 2 weeks of June.  It’s a simple concept…just my favorite walls around the neighborhood.  I’m starting with these three…ivy covered, aqua and rich wood.

Here’s how it works:  It’s $150 for a 15 minute session and 15 digital images for you to print and share.  This can be for families, kids, dogs, grandparents…whoever you want to fit into your 15 minutes!  You get to pick your date and time (June 16-28) from whatever I have available in my schedule.

How to book:  Email or call (contact buttons on the left) and let me know your choice of date/time and your favorite wall!
