If I had a quarter for every time someone says this when they find out that I am a professional photographer... until they see my work! Let's face it, today's cell phones are perfectly adequate to capture those spontaneous moments we all share as friends and families, they record times that you don't want to lose for good, they work for remembering things that you otherwise may not. But in reality, cherishing the behavior and personality of your loved ones in a well balanced and composed shot that makes you smile each time you see it, is hard to get with that small little lens on the back of your phone.
Professional Photographers spend years analyzing light, composition, personality traits, lines and angles, backgrounds... and all other items you simply just don't see when you hold your phone up, shoulder height and pointed at the subject in front of you and yell. "Smile"!!
Next time you really want to see the difference, and you are wondering if you should spend that money on those memories that you will cherish forever, go online and type in any portrait images on Google, then go through your images on your phone and you will see the differences. Look at the backgrounds, at the light, at the angles of the arms and legs, at the sun shining from behind your subject, not in their faces causing them to squint.
It's not always necessary to have Professional Photos by any means! Those phone images are unmistakably cherished for as long as you have them as well! But when you are ready for those shots to have that extra touch that you can share and keep on your wall forever, find a good Professional Photographer to lend a hand. That's what we are here for. We love capturing emotions and even more, we love to see our clients smile and appreciate the incredible photos we deliver!
