We're all familiar with the term 'Selfie' right? The art of taking a picture of yourself, sometimes with or without friends and family members. These are great for social media sharing, letting everyone know how awesome your life is and stuff! But what about those special occasions where you want to be in the pictures, but in a way that doesn't include your arms either side of the camera?
This is where I come in!
I've been moving files around on the website to group 'Family Shoots' together to make it easier for my clients to access their pictures, but keep them in the relevant timeline, so they're not all jumbled up. The reason I've done this is because what typically happens is; a couple will book me for their wedding, we'll do some engagement shoots to get them used to having a big bald fella stalking them with two whacking great big cameras, teaching them how to relax and basically break the ice with me. So we've those done... Then obviously the wedding comes around, and I put all those in a different folder. Then you might have a child or a wedding anniversary come along, and have me for that, you know, for consistency... It's much either when you have your photographs taken with someone you know, don't you think?
Grouping Images on my new Smartphone AppKeeps passwords secure, pictures in the right order, everything simple. Like today for example! A christening in West Belfast, with the couple whose wedding I did a little over 5 years ago. Baby Jessica had her first shoot with me at her Baptism, both into the Church and into Darron Mark Photography. The reason I was there was Dad had thought "hang-on, who'll take the pictures if we're all there?" All I can say to that is "Smart Dad" - A selfie just wouldn't have cut the mustard, unless you used one of those selfie sticks (yuk).
Having a photographer (me) at your special events means everything is taken care of, no blurry pictures of those special moments, Mum AND Dad in the picture, along with the little ones, everyone happy. Keep the selfies for the holiday snaps or nights out at the pub.
