Instagram 60 Second Videos, Photography for Entrepreneurs

There are exciting changes happening on Instagram. One great upgrade...60 second video option. Before now, the limit was 15 seconds. Video is such a great marketing resource for any Business or Entrepreneur. And the one minute video feature on Instagram is the perfect length to share a quick message. 

*This feature will slowly be released over the next few months to everyone. Some so accounts will have the 60 second option right away and some will see it activated later.

All of this inspired me to create a new video. I specialize in portrait and product photography for Entrepreneurs by providing personalized marketing plans and custom stock photo libraries. This video features one of my business clients, Sweetness and Delight Event Styling. I'll eventually share this on Instagram when I get the 60 second option. A fun thing to look forward to.

This project is part of the new division of my photography company. I now offer marketing, video and content creation to my clients.

Happy Easter! Enjoy this video...

Looking Natural in Portraits, The Art of a Successful Photo Shoot

My favorite portraits are the ones where my clients look completely relaxed, connected and genuine. My goal during every photo shoot is to get to that perfect place where a person's true personality shines. Sometimes I achieve this by just simply asking my client to look off camera and think of a happy memory. Or I might ask them to turn their back to the camera and then twirl back to looking into the camera. The fun of both these approaches usually gets a real laugh and an uninhibited reaction. 

I just adore these portraits of Catrice, the owner of Sweetness and Delight Event Styling.
