UNDER 15 minute photo shoot
The idea that photography sessions have to be 2 hours long to be successful ( in my opinion ) is completely wrong. Shoots don’t need tons of props, makeup, hair appointments, perfect weather, or need to be hours long to be done well! And to prove this, I grabbed my little sister Julia and her boyfriend Matt before they had to take the train into Boston and told them I was going to photograph them. My goal was to shoot them in under 15 minutes ( took me about 12 ) and we just ran around my backyard through the rain and wind taking pictures.
The best photos usually end up being the ones when I capture life happening and not necessarily the "perfect shot" with everyone looking at me.
A photographers job is to take photos of you that reflect the real you! So everyone ( clients and photographers ) take a deep breathe and stop obsessing over what is trending on Pinterest and focus on capturing moments that are real.
