Why hire a professional photographer?

Why hire a professional photographer? Well, there are many reasons why to hire a professional photographer.  Let me share just a few…


A professional photographer has done it before; they’ve shot a variety of events and portraits and have been exposed to many subjects and conditions. There’s no shortcut to experience, and you take a tremendous gamble with a first-timer or an inexperienced photographer not knowing what to do at various points during your event or shoot. Those in the professional photography world have a lot of experience to draw from; they know intuitively to take extra shots of crucial moments in case anyone blinks or has an awkward expression. They have experience in guiding groups of every size for the very best results, interacting fluidly with their clients to achieve the desired results. Experience and training are especially important when entrusting someone with your newborn child. It is important that when posing newborn babies the photographer be trained and that you trust them.


A professional photographer is working for you, and they are invested in your satisfaction. You are their client, not their relative or friend, and they will retain a level of professionalism your aunt or brother-in-law may not. They also have the fortitude and commitment to work for long periods without breaks and see the job through so that the best results possible are achieved.


A professional photographer will have the ideal editing software and skill and training to retouch and edit your photos, bringing out the very best in each one. The last thing you want is a Photoshop novice trying to retouch photos of your most prized and precious memories. They will also have invested in professional cameras and lenses that will give you a look of clarity and sharpness that can only be achieved with high quality equipment.

I am a master at turning chaos into creativity! Large family gatherings, crying babies, wild toddlers, fighting siblings, frustrated dads, exasperated moms. You have your hands full just trying to get everybody to the shoot in one clean, well-dressed piece. You shouldn’t have to worry about getting them all to look in the same direction, much less look happy while they’re doing it. That’s my job as a professional photographer! I’m also a master at helping you decide just how to preserve and display your family’s chaos, your wedding photos or your growing baby bump . In hopes these images will be passed on to your children & grandchildren one day.
