Does the title of this post sound too negative to even *be* me? It does, doesn't it? I love my clients and I love being chosen by new clients to be their family photographer. That said, I have had this post rattling around in my head for about a month now and I think I am ready to explain what I mean when I say "Please don't hire me".
When you decide to capture your family's memories by booking a shoot with a photographer, you likely have a good idea of what kind of images you would like to grace the walls of your home. You have expectations and you are excited (and a little nervous, perhaps?) about how everyone will look, where the pictures will be taken, where you'll find those outfits... and about the photographer you hired?
No, you say! Of course not! You have carefully selected the photographer, right? You've poured over her images, been truly taken by what she sees when she works with a family, loved the locations she's chosen for her subjects... she's perfect for you and your family. You are, after all, hiring her for a very important job. You are asking her to capture a moment in time, a moment that becomes a memory the instant it happens... a moment that you will never have again.
You're hiring a photographer to meet your expectations and you've done the research to know that she's the right one for the job.
If you are here, you may be considering hiring me to be that photographer. Here are the three reasons I would suggest that you not hire me and I hope you will read to the end so that there is no confusion about what I mean.
So... did you make it? Are you still with me? Did you skip over everything above to see if there was a lighter side to this post? Of course there is!
Here are the reasons YOU SHOULD HIRE ME:
If you've seen my work and you love it; if you want to capture images of your family engaging with one another; if you have seen my pricelist and believe my work is worth the investment... by all means, hire me to be your photographer.
I guarantee that you won't regret it and I cannot wait to work with you! If you would like to book a session with SKP, please click here.
