This spot has been empty for some time, trying to figure out what best describes Denise, mother, wife, photographer. There are several hats worn. Photography has defiantly be in my blood since I was young. I must admit, I have no fancy degrees, no 'formal' education when it comes to photography. I love what I do, I may not capture that perfect 'family' posed photo, but I will certainly strive to capture a moment that you will be proud to display on your wall for years to come. I have had photos published in nationwide magazines, I have been taking photos for over 25 years, and every time I shoot photos I challenge myself as photographer to create something new.
"Photographer" that is something I had a hard time calling myself. Anyone can take photos with a camera, I guess that makes everyone a photographer in a sense. BUT when you think of a "Photographer" I want my work to speak for itself. 1st Impressions and Customer Service, should be second to none.
There is no 'age' that I would rather work with. Children are the eyes to the future. To see things the way they do is how we should all look at things. Innocent, bright and full of life and light. Elderly, they have so much knowledge of things I have never experienced nor never will because of the way things 'used to be'. There is something to be said for a simpler way of life, that is for sure. And then there are all those in the middle... High School Seniors, so full of life and wonder as to what is ahead of them in the year to come. Adults with children or a child (like me) someone to converse with and find out what it is that is important to them in a photo.
Complete Customer Satisfaction, that is what I strive for with each and every shoot. Granted, I have guidelines with my pricing, but maybe it takes an extra 20 minutes, who cares, the shot they want is what they will get. Am I a super crazy post processor with my photos? No, I pride myself in keeping everyone in the photos looking just like they are! That is the point of a photo. Little touch ups (those unexpected pimples or a scratch) absolutely! Enhancing a photo to give it a 'look' sure, BUT I guarantee you, you will look like you!
OK, I think I am finished, if you haven't noticed, I like to talk too.. Comfortable, Fun, Casual and above all, Satisfied, that's is what you will find when you come to see me.
