ONE OF THE BIGGEST FEARS* PEOPLE HAVE IS GETTING THEIR PICTURE TAKEN.
There are a couple of good reasons for this:
- No one likes to be "put on the spot".
- No one likes to look bad.
"Oh, I don't take a good picture!"
What they are really saying is,
"I hate it when I'm put on the spot and I have to "perform" -- I hate trying to 'look good' for a picture... I can never smile on command without it looking fake."
But what you may not realize is that it's not up to you to make the portrait turn out, it's up to the creator of the Portrait! If you feel "put on the spot", your photographer is not making you feel comfortable.
At Coonrod Photography, it's not like "having your picture taken"; it's a whole different experience.
If all your previous portrait experiences were "school pictures" or standing in line or being told, "Sit on the box and smile!" you're in for a big surprise.
WE TREAT YOU LIKE A PERSON.
Here's a secret we've learned: If your Portrait experience is unpleasant and uncomfortable, your Portrait will look unpleasant and uncomfortable!
We take your portraits seriously, but we don't take ourselves seriously. If getting your Portrait isn't fun, it's not worth doing.
Your session will be fun, and when you have fun, you'll be comfortable - and when you're comfortable, you'll look great! We know it sounds simple... because it really is. When you feel good, you look good -- and we will do everything in our power to make sure you feel good at our studio!
