We have good news. We need wedding photos for our website. If you or someone you know are getting married, we are offering our services for a very low price. We will take all of the traditional photos such as rehearsal dinner, before the wedding getting ready, special wedding photos and photos during the reception for $400.00. You will get electronic copies of all clear photos along with prints of the best pictures. In trade, we will post many of your wedding photos on our website to help advertise that we will be available for weddings.
Looking through a lens, creating a depth of field that is going to highlight the beauty of the subject, is my goal when I push down that button on my camera. People are my favorite subjects. Catching the look in their eyes when they look at their newborn child. Capturing a familiar glance or expression for their loved ones to enjoy. Stopping time in the life of the subject and apprehending that moment for them to share and reminisce about. Each person has a story and an accumulation of experiences, both good and bad. I think about that when I take photos of people. It’s an honor to freeze that moment in time for them.
Flowers and plants are also a favorite subject of mine. I can’t imagine a life where flowers didn’t exist. From dandelions to roses and everything in between, I love all of them. Sometimes I catch the light just right and a photo of a flower is suddenly a work of art. I have 2 favorite flower photos that I took in Ipswich Massachusetts one Easter. I had no plan to find the perfect flower that day. Craig and I were on our way to my son’s in-law’s house for dinner. We were early and we drove by an old castle. Of course we stopped. I got some really great shots that day. There were many spring blooms around and they did photograph well. There was a tree that was through an archway that caught my attention. I believe they were some hearty species of magnolias. The background of the photograph is rich and brown with mottled spots of light. The flowers are elegant and clear. The flowers captured my eye and the camera saw what I saw. It makes me feel satisfied to be able to photograph something and have it come out the same way I was seeing it. These photos evoke emotion. I have been told that by people quite often. I think that may be why they are my favorite.
C & B Creative may not be raking in the dough (yet) but I can’t think of any other way I’d like to be spending my time. We recently purchased a new camera for Craig. We will be taking a course in the near future with an accredited online school. We see things so differently and I find that it often comes through in how we take pictures. We will add Craig’s perspective to the mix and I’m sure it will move us forward in our pursuit. What does success look like to me? I’m not even sure yet. If I gauge our success in monetary measure, it’s probably not going well. If I gauge our success by how well others receive our work, I may say that we are doing quite well.
We are booking for summer sessions right now. We are available evenings during the week and weekends. Please consider us for your next family photo shoot, head shots for business cards, events, product photography for businesses and weddings.
