Liesl Maternity & How to Portait Guide | Mesa Gilbert AZ Maternity and Newborn Photographer

"Blog, Featured, Maternity, Uncategorized"

Liesl is an amazing/inspiring/just all around awesome person!  As I share photos from her gorgeous maternity session, I'd like to take the opportunity to talk about how we can help ourselves enjoy our own portraits more! Women are truly beautiful, aren't they!  As a woman, I really don't enjoy getting in front of the camera -BUT- it's a must!  Especially now that I am a mother of three, and one of them being a little girl.  And I really want my daughter to be stronger than all the stereotypes and cruel judgements that we all face every day.  Unfortunately, helping her, and myself, build our confidence is not an easy task.  So, I would like to take a minute to share some ideas that I use to battle this each day.  The very top of…

The #1 Question Non-Photographers Ask Me

"Blog, Featured, Uncategorized"

There is one question that I get asked A LOT.  Sometimes I will get emails asking about lighting or props or various questions from beginner photographers, but when it comes to non-photographers, it's mostly this one question: "Which camera should I buy?"
