Why Go Pro?
Photography has changed dramatically over the last decade. Smart phone cameras are closing in on the image quality of mid-range digital cameras and will eventually catch up to the high resolution files that good quality DSLR cameras produce. If everyone has a smart phone that can take good pictures, why do you need to visit a professional photographer? What complicates matters is the ease in which phones can share the photos. You can attach your phone to a tripod, take a good quality family photo, edit it and share it all within a few minutes time. A professional photo comes back to you in digital or print format within a few days of the portrait session. Prints are slow to share, and unless your photographer provides social media ready files, your digital images can be close to impossible to share. (Our files average 50MB in size before they are edited!) So why choose a professional photographer? You have to think in terms of quality, creativity, and convenience. A professional photographer is going to deliver an expertly crafted image, with exceptional quality, and take care of all the details to make it convenient for you. If you just want pictures to post on Facebook, a phone may be fine, but the quality of those pictures goes up dramatically when they are done professionally.
