Nick + Katherine | Engaged

  • A Timeless Georgetown Engagement Session

We had their session scheduled for two Fridays ago and the forecast was not cooperating. We book up about two months in advance, and so I was THRILLED when we had a schedule change for the very next Friday, and Katherine and Nick were FREE! It was perfect timing, and we couldn’t have picked a better day. The light was perfectly soft and glowy! The temperature felt like a warm day in September, and these two were naturals!

Photographers : What you don’t realize about your Skin Tones!

  • The Secret to Consistency!

I would say that easily 75% of the editing concerns that come up in our workshops and coaching sessions stem from one of two common issues. Either the photographer doesn’t know how to create “pop” in their images or they struggle with a lack of liveliness and warmth! It’s SO HARD to look at your own work and realize what is missing and causing an issue!! After I show them how they can WARM an image without over-doing it, and how I ALWAYS make sure that we avoid grey/blue skin tones in our images, it’s like I showed them a WHOLE NEW WORLD!!!! It’s simple and yet this secret is overlooked, because it requires using a less-popular slider in Lightroom!!
