I recently got a question about how to make my models and clients feel comfortable in front of the camera (and I can’t stop thinking about how passionate I am about this).

When I first started photography, I was so worried about props and posing and locations to make my photos beautiful. I would transition from spot to spot so v quickly— but as I’ve grown, I’ve learned that posing and props are only accessories to a good photo.

Slowing down to allow people to breathe + feel is what helps them open up to me. We’re all just craving connection with someone and something in this fast-paced world. Let your clients connect with you and they’ll feel something when you send their gallery.

How Do You Make Clients Feel Comfortable During Photos?

Katie is one of my close friends who also happens to be a photographer. When my family moved into our first house, the Warners lived around the corner and took us in right away. We had the best neighborhood who were just so friendly and welcoming! I’m still so sad they moved away from us!

Katie chose Trapper Park for their family session and I always LOVE the light here. It’s so dynamic and bright, but I love it! We can get so much yummy warmth in the photos when the area is open and bright! So grateful when other photographers trust me to capture their families. It feels just a little bit more special.
