A goal of photographing is to make the client feel relaxed and comfortable. I must admit that I LOVE it when I have a client that says: "I don't photograph well", "I never look good" or "I hate having photo's".
When they see a photograph of themselves and they realise how good they look, how pretty or how photogenic they really are makes my day and makes me feel accomplished.
Often times, during a photo-shoot I will have to give the client a sneak peak of an image just to show them that it's "O.K", and that it is turning out better then they are imagining.
Not Jess & Phil! It wasn't until I got home that I turned to my handy off-sider and said: "You know I didn't even have to show them (Jess & Phil) once, a photo from the back of the camera to relax them and let them know how great they are looking!"
From the time I arrived they placed all their trust in my hands, and were relaxed - up until the end! In-fact if their were nerves, you definitely wouldn't have picked it from this couple!
