Getting to Know You!

Posted: December 11, 2015 by Judy Licht Photography in Uncategorized

The first time I meet a lot of my clients is the day they come for a shoot.

As a newspaper photographer, which is how I started, my job was to capture the character of a person to tell a story.  As a portrait photographer, I have to make my clients love how they look.

I used to think the sign of a good photographer was getting it right on the first frame — that the responsibility for a successful shoot lay totally on my shoulders.

Now, I approach my work differently.  The photograph is a relationship.  Getting to know you and how you want to project yourself enhances the process.

The pictures of Rachel, below, show the evolution of our shoot.  I love how, in the hour and a half we had together, she opened up so comfortably.
