I’ve known Brian for years. Brian’s cousin Jen is one of my closest friends from college. As you can see, I was THRILLED when Yoko contacted me and wanted me as their photographer.
This is a perfect example that no matter how close one is with the subject, the subject can still be very uncomfortable in front of a camera. It’s not something Brian and Yoko do on a day-to-day basis so it took a little time for them to get used to. This emphasizes the importance of an engagement session. This is the time when I get to know who you are, what you like and give you tips and tricks about how to look GREAT in front of a camera! I’ve learned a few tricks through the years *wink*
