"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."
~ Edgar Degas
I'm so happy to share with you some of my favourite photos from Riana and Piers' combined maternity and couple shoot, now that they've seen them. I'm also happy to say that they loved their photos.
Most surprising of all is that they also loved the ones that weren't necessarily my favourites. And that's the great thing about art, as today's headline says..."Art, like beauty is the the eye of the beholder.". Everyone sees things differently. That's what I find fascinating. What I see and how I look at and interpret the world can be vastly different to how you see the world.
The key as a photographer is connecting with your clients so that you get a feel or essence of who they are, and then reflecting back to them your take on who they are. If you've connected and taken the time to find out what's important to your client, you'll create images that not only you love as a photographer, but most importantly, that your client loves and resonates with. It's all about collaborating and bringing our visions together.
Thanks to Riana and Piers for your enthusiasm and willingness to step out, be bold and try something a little different.
So here are a few more of my favourite pics, and I'll even show the one that I admit wasn't my favourite, but is one of theirs. See if you can spot it. ;)
