"If indeed you must be candid, be candid beautifully."
Think about that for a second. There are many ways to catch a candid photograph, but to execute the candid image in a beautiful way is difficult when you’re working in the moment. So what if as photographers, we focused more on the client connection and basic movements to really capture a candid moment? You end up with beautiful things.
As a photographer, I have worked diligently to capture my clients in their truest form. I want to get to know them and I want their images to tell a story. Bringing out genuine emotion in front of the camera isn't always the easiest, but it is the definitely the most satisfying part of my job. This candid style is what has shaped my business and helped it grow by leaps & bounds over the past year or so.
When Jenny, of Jheart Photography asked me to partner up with her, to teach these techniques along with pose flow/workflow, I jumped at the opportunity! Jenny & I have very similar philosophies when it comes to photography and being a business woman. After many hours of discussing these beliefs and goals, we decided we had to share our knowledge and love of our craft with others. Thus, Candid Beautifully was born!
10 amazing women gathered at The Marry Me Cottage in O’Fallon MO to learn, grow, and network. We talked about posing tips, easy prompts to tell clients to maximize the shots rendered, how to flow from one pose to the next, and even some business tips. We were also blessed to work with some phenomenal wedding vendors in our area!
It was such a wonderful experience to share the things Jenny & I have learned, as well as to get to know each of the beautiful women who attended. We all have varying styles and goals, but we were able to come together and share a day of laughter and support. Sharing and helping others brings me such fulfillment.
