Building off last week's reflections on my growth as a photographer, this week is all about style. (Didn't read last week? Check it out here.) While I'm still building my style as a photographer, I've begun to pick up on certain consistencies within my portfolio that lend themselves to helping me develop and define my style, especially as I've been working through my Tails of Sacramento book project.
Where I was previously more focused on doggy headshots, in the last year or so I've begun to focus more on full body shots and playing with angles. While I do like to capture some candids and action shots, most are posed. My images tend on the light, airy side, back-lit, and sometimes with intentionally blown-out skies. I photograph in natural light 100% of the time (shhh, it's secret time - even my "studio" shots - think ducks in this blog post - are photographed outside in natural light with a backdrop; or for cats, inside in front of big windows with lots of natural light). I do include owners in photographs when they want to be included, but overall, my focus is on the pet.
Check out some sneak peeks from my recent Tails of Sacramento sessions to take a look at my current style.
Think your pet would look fabulous in my style? I'm currently booking out into late October and November - make sure you book now to get your pet portraits done before the holidays! And in case you didn't see it on my Instagram - book your session in October or November and I will donate $150 directly to Resilient Dog Rescue!
Don't forget to continue following the blog circle to see everyone else's style this week. Up next is Elaine Tweedy of I Got the Shot Photography, capturing style and grace in Northeastern PA and surrounding areas.
