How exactly do you hire a photographer?

One of the first questions many customers have is “How Do I Hire a Photographer?”

There are several really important things to consider when hiring someone to photograph your family.

Finding a great location near you is one of my highest priorities. Somewhere we can have fun and let your family be your family.

Location

For me, location is one of the biggest considerations. When looking for a family photographer convenience is key. If you have to drive two hours to get to the studio then the kids will be cranky, your husband will be annoyed, and you’ll be frazzled. Having a photographer come to you is one of the best solutions.

I’m based in North Orange County, California. I’m local to Los Angeles, Long Beach, Orange County, the Inland Empire, the Valley, and San Diego. I drive to you, so you don’t have to deal with the stress of coming to me.

 

Price

I’m sure you’ve heard the adage “You Get What You Pay For.” For something as important as family photos you don’t necessarily want to buy the cheapest service around. Just because someone has a nice camera doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing.

I strive to keep my prices affordable with the highest quality service, images, and products available. When you book with me you get more than you pay for. You get attention, service, and expert advice.

 

When you think of posed portraits you may think back to your days of stale school pictures where the photographer makes you stand in a spot and move in a specific way. Modern posing is about helping you to look both relaxed and natural while letting you be comfortable.

Style

What type of photography are you drawn to? Do you like staged studio portraits with artificial lighting like you find at JC Penny? Do you prefer photojournalistic portraits that are completely unposed? Or are you looking for something more natural, but still classic?

My photographic style is contemporary posed portraits. I like to work on location so that your images reflect your family’s style and personality. I will pose you to make sure you look your best and that your individual personalities shine through. I classic editing to keep your images from looking outdated in a couple of years. Classic is timeless for a reason.

 

Personality

Let’s face it, you’re going to spend a lot of time with your photographer. You have to trust them and like them if you want to enjoy your photo shoot and cherish the memories being made. I love working with families and children. I’m never in a rush and always put the needs of my clients first. I want you to have fun and enjoy the process.
