Photos and More!

I've been so busy lately with photo-shoots that I've had to raise my prices. It was a struggle for me because I really love being able to provide a service at an accessible price. I don't want people not to have pictures just because they can't afford it. Yes, they can go to Wal-Mart or take pictures of their own, but it's not quite the same. Or it wouldn't be to me. I really enjoy taking photos, I don't do it for the money, I do it because I love hearing from clients and people who I've taken pictures of who are happy because they have a memory to keep forever. One of the best compliments I ever received was from someone who said that he liked my photos because he looked in my photos how he felt he really looked. I may have worded that confusingly, but I knew what he meant. It's nice to look at a photo and say, yeah that really captures who I am, instead of having it just be a photo where you notice that the way you tilted your head gave you a double chin. I just don't have the time for the amount of business I was getting so I raised my prices, but I'll have to look into some sort of contest or non-profit connection that will let me provide photos at a cheaper price or for free occasionally for people who would love to have photos but might not be able to afford my higher prices.

Enjoy a few of the photos from last weekend's shoots!
