As I creatively cut, trim and design my scrapbook pages of distant memories, I realize, like most of us moms that I am only in about two pictures a year! Another thought that comes to mind as I ponder all the piles of pictures is that not all the pictures are necessarily good pictures. Some are shot too close or from too far away, some are...GASP, blurry ! Some photos are even redundant. How many pictures do you need of exploding scenes from the Indiana Jones show at Hollywood studios or funny dancing seals at Sea World? But I'm glad I have them all because they all represent visually our family memories of the milestones our kids reached and all our experiences we shared together.
I'm also blessed by the pictures that I shot of my kids when I put my Professional Photographer hat on and made sure the lighting was right and my shots were creatively composed in my camera. These are the images that were created after hours of editing in my digital darkroom using my professional software and then custom printed using my professional labs.
It's not unusual that I will have stacks of scrapbooks filled with imperfect pictures, but it has made me wonder how many of you will also have beautiful stunning images shot by a hired Professional that you can also treasure and frame on your walls? Even with the influx of moms and dads that own great DSLR cameras that can be bought at your local Target or Best Buy, the answer is most likely not too many. I've had some fun coming up with my Top Ten List of why you need a professional photographer and while I hope you LOL as you read it, I also hope you realize that you just might see some truth in my reasons and schedule your session sooner rather than later. 407.340.2990 or firstname.lastname@example.org
