With the popularity of cameras of every kind, and people's accessibility (I hate duck-lipped selfies), it has become very difficult for us to live off of our work without another source of income. Also, as technology changes and smaller cameras improve, people seem less inclined to hire out, as they think they can easily achieve the same goal as a pro. All you have to do is walk the long corridor of Port Authority going to or from the 7 train, to see those (I admit) incredible iPhone 6 photos. They're printed so large and have incredible lighting behind them that anyone would be convinced that they can do their family photos with an iPhone (I'm crying inside). Of course that's not the case. You are paying for someone's time, talent, travel, equipment, dedication, editing time, and of course, the shared unique vision of how you want your photos to look. But alas, I will lecture no further.
I am still looking for families to let me into their lives at one of their most special times: to photograph the birth of their baby. My offer still stands: a 100% free shoot with a cd of edited and images (they'll have my logo). Prints are not included, but can be purchased. You just can't beat that!
