1. NOT ABOUT THOSE AWKWARD POSES
I am all about directing the shoot in a way that feels natural, I'm not going to put you in an awkward pose and leave you there for 5 minutes of silence. HECK NO, this will be fun, relaxed, and comfortable. A photographer I know (Ben Sasso) said it best: "It’s dangerous to show up on set with an inflexible view of what you want to create. If you’re trying to direct a couple into delicate, intimate poses but they only sit there for a few seconds before they start making fart noises and tickling each other, you might need to adapt. If they start getting goofy, play into it. If they’re quiet and calm, let them sink further into that. Whatever fire they light, throw some wood on it." So, that being said, I'm not going to shove you into a cookie-cutter set of poses, I want these photos to feel so YOU. We'll play around and get creative, and really lean into who you two are.
YOU JUST BE YOU, I'LL DO THE REST!
