We photographed this lovely family at Saans Photography Studio in Salt Lake City Utah. There are a lot of beautiful Photography Studios in Utah but as a Salt lake Studio Photographer, I love Saans Photography Studio. Jaron is one of the best photographers in town and also one of the kindest. His studio offers quite a bit of versatility in way of a studio setting and just step outside for a great outdoor location as well. When I met the Baker family, I was taken back at the beauty of these girls. As I talked to them throughout the photo session, it became apparent they did not rely on their looks for attention. I made mention of their beauty and how they could be models. They both laughed and said, "Our parents teach us to be beautiful on the inside." At that point the father walked out and joined the conversation at which point he said, "We want our children to be loved for their talents and intelligence." Way to go Dad. I High Fived him.
This family was SUCH a joy to photograph. One thing I have learned as a photographer it is this...if your clients don't FEEL the smile behind the smile, they won't SEE the beauty behind the smile. Let me explain. I photographed a very beautiful family last year. Their outfits were out of a magazine, their hair was immaculate and the setting was perfect. I spent over 30 minutes what I normally give to my clients capturing this other family perfectly. At the end, the mother hated them......not because of what I did, (trust me they were some of my favorite images), but because she didn't feel happy at the shoot. No matter how hard I tried to reassure her and ease her stress, she wouldn't relinquish her worry to me. It is my job to make you feel at ease, to lighten the mood and to help you enjoy your experience. IT IS NOT YOUR JOB TO STRESS. Take the stress out of your photo shoot and give the stress to me and I PROMISE you will love your images. Let yourself FEEL your smile so that in the end you can see your love. It is as easy as that. The Baker family had it right. They felt the smile and so you can see their love. Thank you Liberty for finding me and believing that I could get the job done!
