In case you don’t already know, I tend to specialize in people who don’t like having their photo taken. Not only do I just understand you, I am you! I also don’t love having my photo taken and whenever I get my headshots updated or have photos done with a partner, I’m very picky about who I choose to photograph me for this specific reason. So I get it, not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, and that’s totally okay! It’s my mission and my job as your photographer to create a safe space for you to be yourself, to forget that pressure to perform, to not worry about what you should or shouldn’t be doing with your hands at any given moment.

One of the reasons I love starting at your lifestyle engagement in your home, if that’s something that makes sense for you two, is because it’s a safe and familiar space. One that you’re way more likely to be comfortable in, certainly more comfortable than a random spot that holds no meaning for you. And another reason is because it gives you something to do with your hands. It’s a pretty common joke {that I either hear or make myself} that your hands just take on a life of their own if you’re not telling them explicitly what to do in a situation. So one of the things I do to combat that is by giving you a task. Whether it’s involving the fur {or feather!} babies, making drinks, or making a meal together, it takes you out of your head and gives you something to focus on and something for your hands to do.

For Kat & Stephanie’s home specifically, we focused on their home, the structure itself, the things they love about it. We made coffee and chatted. We hung out in the backyard with their chickens. And we took a short ride to the space where the Farmer’s Market takes place, which has some hella cool plant life.
