Caroline gets extra special love from her family. During her family portrait session prior to the batmitzvah, I photographed warm, intimate portraits of her and her family. I also captured some playful and funny shots, as her family was very relaxed.
When I met Caroline, at first I thought she was shy and reserved, but within seconds we were talking and laughing and she was hamming in front of the lens. One of the most challenging aspects of being a wedding, event and portrait photographer is having clients open up to you and engage with you if they don't know you and do not feel very comfortable in front of the lens. I have a ton of tricks up my sleeve to help with this, and I always like my subjects to feel like I am unobtrusive and will make them look great. It's a challenge sometimes, but one I have have always relished in my photography career. It's a little being myself, a little psychology, a little reading people and how they are feeling and then a ton of technical skill - to create the perfect photo. I believe that experience has a lot to do with being an excellent professional photographer of people. I have to be ready technically and emotionally, and as I have been shooting professionally for over 15 years, I think I have learned to always be ready for the patterns, at the same time always be prepared for the spontaneous events that my occur!
