Being under the hand of a professional is comforting.  There’s just a difference between Super Cuts and that fancy salon you trust your highlights to.  And, yes, your pocket book feels the difference too.  But, being able to trust the professional that’s in charge of your hair, your car and your taxes is worth the extra change.

I feel the same way about being a photographer.  Yes, you can find a photographer for $100, but if you want to hire a professional photographer, you might have to save a bit more.  What’s the difference?  The difference is trusting your image to someone that has photographed babies, photographed families and has experience with maternity photography.  It’s someone who knows how to soothe your cranky toddler and find the most flattering angles for your belly.

So, look at your photographer as your professional image-taker.  Someone you trust and someone that has experience in your stage of life.  And lucky for you, there are so many amazing photographers in Orange County!
