Welcome! I am a Los Angeles (South Bay) based lifestyle photographer and consultant for mompreneurs. Life can be overwhelming enough, and this process shouldn't be.
So glad to see you here, do we have a friend in common?
I'm willing to bet you are intimidated to be in front of the camera and trust me when I say that I am the #1 awkward person in photos! It's all good and don't let that prevent you from having phtoos taken! With me, we'll chat the whole time, I'll tell you where to look and where to place your hands so you won't even think. It will feel like hanging out with a girlfriend more than anything.
I'm willing to bet you worry about your husband and potentially unruly kids. Girl, I have one of them husbands too! The kind of husband who isn't jazzed about photos, am I right? The good news is, I am really fast and move quick. I've been doing this for 14 years and I have some tricks for unenthusiastic partners and overtired toddlers who somehow know that all mom wants is a smile and refuse to give it.
I'm willing to bet you don't feel camera ready. Girl--- stop waiting. Whether you choose me or someone else, you are your toughest critic and she needs to quiet down and let you rock your beautiful self in front of a camera!
