Behind The Scenes (BTS)

For those of you who want to catch a glimpse "behind" the photos here on the website, here is a a great way to see me at work and what it looks like during a family or couples photography session from the photographers perspective!

I take these videos by attaching a GoPro to the top of my camera (you can usually hear my shutter clicking!) or sometimes to my flash stand, or I hand it to someone there with us. Sometimes you will see the flashes firing but most of the time you won’t because the flashes are so short in duration they tend to happen between video frames. I try to keep the videos under two minutes or less, to keep things short and sweet, but now and then when I get some much awesome footage, I just have to include more!

A fun behind-the-scenes look at what it took to get that one perfect family beach jump shot. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right! Filmed with a GoPro mounted to the hot shoe of the camera.

As a family photographer, it can be difficult getting young children's attention in a normal setting. But at the beach, in the waves? Almost impossible! So sometimes I have to resort to all kinds of silly things to get that perfect family photo.
