”Simply let go of how you think a portrait session should go – empty your mind – get rid of it all, and trust me.” That’s what I always tell my first time clients. A great image makes you feel the beauty, feel the laughter, feel the joy…it’s not calculated and posed – it’s just childhood, love and emotion.
