In my 4+ years in photography, I’ve learned that most people don’t find having their photo taken fun.
Not one bit actually.
They’re out of their element. They don’t naturally feel relaxed in front of the camera.
They immediately tense up. They feel self-conscious.
What about photos that are flattering? They’ve learned not to hold their breath.
They are challenged to find a creative professional who is communicative and responsive.
One who answers their e-mails.
Who returns their phone calls.
One who offers guidance. Who sets them up for success. One who answers their questions. And invites them to ask more.
I believe in asking a whole bunch of questions. You don’t know, what you don’t know! And when you don’t understand how things work, you’re not going to feel very comfortable, are you?
That’s why it’s important to me to provide my clients with detailed tips and coaching. I’m the hands-on type. The sharing begins with our pre-shoot phone consult. They feel more prepared.
Clients tell me that I am very good at providing an enjoyable experience. It all begins by setting them at ease. A friendly smile. A warm presence. Excitement you can feel.
I treat my clients like an old friend. And it’s not uncommon for them to leave with a new one.
I make everything about them! I take my time.
I make the entire photo taking process, oh so easy.
I’ve always been that person who can create a good time without fail. Stay cool, calm and collected when things go awry. I can make almost anything (I mean anything), really freakin’ fun!
Clients rave about how good I am at making them laugh.
I’m told my enthusiasm is pretty infectious…
I’ve studied psychology, which means I’ve studied people. I have a knack for making them feel more comfortable. I pay attention to the details. I listen. I treat my photoshoots like I treat life. I constantly try new things. I’m flexible. I’m patient. I go with the flow. I help people open up in front of my camera. I bring out their best. I make them feel beautiful. I make them feel seen. I grow their confidence. I create magic. It’s natural. It’s full of life.
My name is Angie Capri and I help taking photos feel less like a miserable chore. And more like a great adventure!
Oh, one more thing. I’m allergic to fake smiles and cheesy photos.
