A few weeks back, I had a beautiful sunrise photo shoot with Tara and Lynn in St Leonards, near Geelong. Lynn’s property sits immediately opposite the beach facing east. Tara has grown up by the beach and has spent her whole life walking along the sand. When I dropped in to meet them on our first meeting, it was clear to me that they shared a special bond. I immediately imagined a sunrise session looking into the sun with Lynn and Tara as silhouettes. Lynn unfortunately didn’t want to be in any photos, however I managed to persuade her to walk along the sands in St Leonards with Tara while I took some extra photos. I’m glad I did, because in the end these stood out. They really captured the connection between the two of them and told the story of their lives together by the beach. I think Lynn agreed because it was one of the first images to be selected in our viewing session. Lynn went for some stunning timber panel prints. They give a beautiful matt textured finish to the image but with beautiful clarity. The raw edge to the timber was perfect for the beach feel of Lynn’s property too. Lynn gave some great feedback on her experience:
How would you describe your recent photography experience?
Fun, with clear instructions on what to do.
Can you tell me something about it that really stood out (Good or Bad)?
That you were happy to get up early on a cold morning to do a sunrise photo shoot.
Is there anything you would have changed about the experience?
Yes, please let the human know you are going to photograph them before the photo shoot. :-)
How would you describe your finished printed products?
Beautiful. As my friend said you made Tara look even more beautiful.
If you were to recommend my services, what would be the main reason?
Professional, Friendly, easy to talk too, happy to discuss options.
Is there any feedback you would like to provide on the overall client experience?
Thank you Steven, everyone & myself loves the photos of Tara.
Thank you to Lynn and Tara for choosing me to be your Dog Photographer. I had a great time with both of you.
