As I’m traveling this new journey, I am learning more about myself and how I want Shoot Y’all Photography to be remembered. No, I’m not hanging up my pixels. I’m just explaining a little more about how I prepare for a session, and what I want it to represent.
It’s very important to me that no matter what I capture through my lens, the person viewing my pictures will have a feeling of being there. When I capture people, I want them to be in their environment, surrounded by any and everything that represents their personality.
Let’s take Zac, for instance. Zac loves horses, roping, his dog and the country way of life. It was important to me that the location and props had meaning. I’m not a “posed” photographer. I’m actually allergic to straight posed images. I realize I have to pose people in some instances; however, I love flowing and candid. I typically start off with posing people until they become comfortable enough to let loose.
95% percent of my photography is outside. Nature has so much to offer, so I’m taking full advantage of it’s beauty! My goal is to capture people, places and things, in their natural surroundings, and for you to see them as if nobody was looking. To me, a great picture tells a story.
That’s what I’m after!
