About Me and My Photography
I specialize in fun, relaxed and creative photo sessions for your engagement, your family, your infant, your pregnancy, your children, your friends, your reunion, your high school senior, birthday parties, day in the life or any type of photography you desire in the Macomb, St. Clair and Oakland County areas.
I am a mother of four, the first two are twin boys (hence the name, Twin Photography). I started my business because of my love of photography. It is not a job, photography is my passion. I understand that some may feel uncomfortable in front of the camera and children need time to get comfortable. I do my utmost to make your session relaxed and fun and I'm glad to try any ideas and family groupings you desire. I work with the viewpoint that I'm there to make a client happy, I do whatever I can to make sure that is the case. I'm not a business that sends out different photographers, I personally do a small number of appointments each week and I do everything myself from the photography to the final proofs. I want your photos to be beautiful and for your session to be FUN!
My Style as a Photographer
What I do is a quite a bit different than a typical portrait photographer. I use a photojournalist style of photography. While I do suggest poses, I typically take around 50-70 shots in an hour session trying to capture the best moments and natural expressions. My favorite shots are those that don't look posed, ones that look natural, like a moment captured in time. In my studio I have many "props" for children to examine and experience during their photo session. I really put all my effort into giving my very best work to my clients. I've had many clients tell me it was the nicest experience they have had with a photographer, I hope I can make you feel the same way.
Quality of Finished Product
I notice overly processed images on many photographer's websites. Instead of relying on Photoshop filters, mixing textures, vignettes and strange color effects, I prefer clear, crisp and clean color and black and white images that can only be done with Canon and Tamaron's best lenses and a expert understanding of lighting and flash. However a reasonable amount of artistic and general touchup Photoshop work and special effects on all prints or albums sides included at no charge.
