I also like mixing the "old" with the "new" and putting the "IT" in Trad"IT"ional! So, if you want zombies in your engagement session or maybe you want to be saved by a "faster than a speeding train" superhero? Perhaps you and your S.O. are into video games...what a better way to capture the unique qualities of your love than to photograph you battling out an epic game of Pac-Man on an arcade game or couch-surfing at your domicile with your Xbox controllers in hand??
Maybe your family is really into zombies and horror movies? What better way to memorialize the ones you love than in a zombie family photo? That's ok if you're NOT into things like this too! I also love to capture your family and loved ones....just BEING your family and being your loved ones...being themselves.
Maybe you all have a family game or movie night together...why not hire me to spend time photographing your family playing games together or preparing dinner or making up a batch of popcorn and then everyone sitting down to watch the movie together? Posed in front of the fireplace is fine too...but, is that REALLY your family? Are they really always sitting up straight, with perfect hair and matching outfits? I love taking those pics too...and there is definitely a place for those pics. But, I think, when you go to look at pics of your loved ones, you're going to sit with the imperfect photos the most. The pics where their hair is tussled or their clothes stained from hard work or hard play. Those are the pics that usually wind up on the fridge, or crumpled up in a purse or wallet...or our scrapbooks.
Yes, I shoot people and they pay me! :D In all seriousness though, I do! I shoot models, actors, marketing moguls, corporate head-shots, brides etc. But, I shoot everyday people too! That is to say, families, portraits, seniors, candid, lifestyle, or just for fun! I photography tasteful boudoir AND pin-up too!
This isn't because I can't decide WHAT I want to shoot, it's because I love to shoot! So, I diversify and I adapt so that I can continue to shoot a lot of different things. Though what I shoot may vary, my style is very "me" and my style means shooting for your needs too!
