Boosting Confidence During a Shoot


Today’s feature is from .

Lisa says:

“This is the lovely Hannah – she was one of my 2014 senior representatives. Her session was done in 2 parts – a spring shoot in the red rocks and a fall shoot here in Kingman. Hannah is such an outgoing, friendly girl and I hope to have captured that in her images.”

Lisa’s Photography Tip:

When working with seniors (or ANY client really) the key is to make sure that they are comfortable with you. That will translate to natural, relaxed looking images.

Communication is so important in this – make sure that you talk to your senior client, ask about their interests, their boyfriend/girlfriend, their plans for the future, etc. And then, when you get a killer shot, show it to them on your camera’s LCD screen! This will help build confidence and make the rest of your session sail smoothly.


Lisa used a Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 200mm 2.0L lens and a Canon 85mm 1.2L lens to capture these images.
