Susan & David Engagement Session
They kept telling me that they were awkward in front of the camera and didn't know how the shoot would turn out. But the more portraits I take, I realize that people are awkward in front of the camera not because they are awkward but because the camera and person behind it makes them feel awkward. Saying "1, 2, 3" before taking a photo is the best thing you can do if you want the subjects to have a plastic or fake smile that you never see unless they take a photo. When you can make people feel comfortable enough to be themselves then there is a beauty that comes out that I just can't get enough of.
