Jasmine Star FAQ: Tips for Portrait Photography @MediaNovak
My mom insists she doesn’t have a favorite child. Pfffft. LIKE I BELIEVE HER. It’s clear I would be any parent’s favorite given my record of bribery and blackmail. You’re welcome, mother. Since I don’t have children I don’t know what it’d feel like to choose favorites, but the closest I get to this type of decision making is deciding what photos will be posted on the blog after an engagement session.
And right about…now…every mother reading this post is rolling her eyes. No, children and photos are nothing alike, but I can feel a sense of creative ownership and it’s hard to select which to showcase to represent the shoot as a whole.
I rarely display portraits. I shoot standard portraits at every engagement session, but I don’t showcase them on the blog because it’s not a specialty and I don’t think they’re the best representation of my work. I, however, ensure to capture a signature portrait because I believe it’s nice to have and rounds out the engagement session portfolio.
