5 good reasons
to crack for a photo shoot
The major stages of life such as a birth or a wedding, the presence of a professional photographer is obvious, but the moments of our daily life are much less so. And yet, as the beautiful summer evenings remind us, life is made up of a multitude of small moments of happiness, pride, joy ... And these are the moments that, I believe, are there to remind us to how beautiful life is and enjoy it.
Nowadays, with our smartphones, we photograph everything ... and especially anything! Have you ever wondered about the value of photographing your pasta dish and sharing it on Instagram? Or your toes at the beach? Wouldn't it be better to share these moments with family and friends? Especially since often, all these photos end up deep in the phone or hard drive, and under the multitude of pictures, it is difficult to find the time and energy to sort, select, import, and print the most beautiful photos, those that tell your story.
So, to write the most beautiful story, here are 5 good reasons to go for a photoshoot!
1. To have beautiful images
A session carried out by a professional photographer allows you to have beautiful images, on the one hand for the purely technical visual quality, but also in the way we look at things, the way of conceiving the details. The eye of your photographer works every day to compose his images, to perfect them and to integrate strong emotions. It's a daily job to compose your image, to structure it, to play with light and to integrate elements into the frame or not. In a photo shoot, the photographer deciphers your personality, your way of being and interacts with you to enhance yourself, reveal your beauty and let yourself be expressed.
We all love these marketing images or films with extraordinary scenes, making happy characters evolve, playing and laughing together in an idyllic setting, illuminated with an almost unreal light. What if I told you, that you too can create your own extraordinary movie scene? Don't hide, we all love this feeling of pride, of feeling beautiful, fulfilled! And then, it's an opportunity to let go, it always feels good! Each photographer has his personality and his approach, which will be felt in each of his shots. It is therefore essential that you are comfortable with him, that the feeling passes!
2. To live a wonderful experience
Before, we went to the studio photographer to take a family portrait (with Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle and Grandma's dog)… With the arrival of digital technology, we would have thought that the world of photographers was going to collapse… Well no ! A photo shoot is above all experienced as a great experience to live together, and looking at the images, we like to lose ourselves again in this moment, to hear it, to feel it, to live it.
It's the photographer's job to put you at ease, to make you happy, natural, smiling, yourself ... It's your job to let go and give everything together (and I promise you, it feels good. good!) And for the experience to be more beautiful, preparation for the photo shoot is important: choosing the right outfits, taking care of yourself, beautifying your body (makeup, hairdresser, manicure, etc.). During the session, all you have to do is show your wonderful smile, and what matters most to you. During my photoshoots, I don't ask you to pose. It's no use, it's ugly, unnatural. I want you to make the most of the present moment! That you leave with stars in your eyes, your heart filled with wonderful memories. Don't worry about anything, I'll take care of everything! And the more you let go, the more beautiful the photos will be ...
3. To be proud of it
The photo shoot over, you now have wonderful memories, together, happy, laughing, having fun ... In short, images that look like you! You are proud to share them with your loved ones, right? In addition to having beautiful images, you will be able to savor this moment of sharing filled with emotions: the happiness of exhibiting your images, and also of certainly hearing very nice compliments in return. The advantage of a photo shoot is that, for once, you no longer need to choose the one that will not be in the photos since you are all there in the photos! It's too obvious to think about it, but in the end, it's always the same one who takes the photos… and who never appears on them. A detail that makes a lot of differences!
And then even if today, you are not photogenic, you have a crooked tooth, extra pounds, wrinkles or some other abominable complex ... When decades have passed, you will have a real pleasure in review these images. Your children, and even grandchildren, will have fun seeing themselves small, how their lives were before. The years make the complexes disappear but love appear, the emotions present remain in the images. Then again, it's my job to make you like yourself in her photos and make your complexes go away. It's a job of knowing how to use light so that it does not create unsightly shadows, how to compose your image so that it tells a beautiful story and highlights you.
4. To remember beautiful things
Who hasn't got lost on a rainy Sunday afternoon in the old family photo albums? The photographs are part of a strong family heritage and from generation to generation, the images are a great wealth. Life is sometimes strewn with obstacles, more or less long to overcome. Falling back on these clichés restores the strength that you lacked for a moment. You go back to the wonderful moment you had, at a moment in your life.
And your grandchildren, what will they see in these photos? They will be even more valuable because they will represent their origin, a piece of their heritage that they will take pleasure in viewing and sharing with their families ... Photos allow us to appreciate the evolution of our toddlers, to see them grow, other than through identity photos. The photoshoots also make it possible to capture the smiles, grimaces, some facial expressions of which they have the secret and perhaps even bursts of laughter so loud that we can still hear them when looking at the photo. You will also have all these moments of complicity with you.
5. For gifts that really make you happy
We love all the gifts! On the other hand, finding gift ideas, for yourself and for your loved ones, it immediately becomes more complicated ...
And yet, as we are so proud of the beautiful images that we have taken with our favorite photographer, we love having them displayed in our house even more! For people who like to see life in a big way, you can frame an XXL souvenir in the living room, or make a light box that will illuminate an everyday room. For the discreet, you can make a small compilation of images to slip into your portfolio, or a pretty album book to take everywhere with you. In short, you will understand, everything is possible, from the classic print to modern and trendy ideas such as the wonderful keepsake box.
And then why not offer a photo shoot itself? It is a gift idea that really pleases, at any age and for all occasions! Grandparents and the family are always very happy to be able to take advantage of these moments of happiness, gathered around a common experience to share. It's also a great idea to celebrate a nice event (birthday, birth, Mother's Day, Christmas ...) or simply to please those you love.
