The Number One Reason to hire a PPA Photographer
 
_MG_0060art
 
Attention to Detail, Experience, Education—these are all outstanding reasons to hire a PPA Certified Photographer. But what do we think is the number one reason?
 
Attention to detail
Your photographer will pay attention to the detail. Stray hairs are smoothed out and ties are straightened. Babies are posed right down to the position of their hands. Blankets are smoothed out. Background clutter is removed. Even the time of your appointment is carefully planned. Every part of your session is carefully orchestrated to ensure that you get the best images possible.
 
Experience
A professional photographer has done it before; they’ve photographed a variety of events and portraits and have been exposed to many subjects and conditions. There is no shortcut to experience, and you take a tremendous gamble with a first-timer or an inexperienced photographer not knowing what to do at various points during your shoot. Professionals know intuitively to take extra shots of crucial moments in case anyone blinks or has an awkward expression. They know the ins and outs of posing and can make subjects look natural in any setting. They anticipate angles and approaches for each scene. They have experience in guiding groups of every size for optimal results.
 
Education
Just like in any other field, PPA Professional photographers have endless hours of training and experience. It takes years and a lot of hard work to hone photography skills. Your photographer will have spent a lot of time and money educating themselves on how to compose your images and light them well to create a lovely gallery of images for you to choose from. However, that is only the beginning. A true professional photographer is an artist from start to finish. They start with the image from the camera, but they can take that image and enhance it digitally for optimal color, saturation, and quality. This experience only comes with years of study in darkrooms and digital classes.
 
One of the goals of most sessions is to produce images that will be enlarged and framed for the wall. This is an investment in your home and can enhance a room. You spend a lot of time and hard earned money furnishing your room. A final touch of professional images of your family only makes sense.
 
The number one reason to hire a professional photographer is that once that special day is over, the kids are grown up, or you’ve said “I do”– it is now a precious memory. Those moments cannot be relived. Weddings, maternity images, newborn images, senior year, and other important milestones only happen once. These photos will take you back to that time or that day, to a place where you can almost smell the flowers and touch the perfect, soft newborn skin. It is definitely worth hiring the very best to capture those precious memories.

On November 10th & 11th, we will be offering two Christmas sessions that are simply adorable!
Our Perfect Tree session is inspired by the Charlie Brown Christmas movie, with our tiny tree and red pedal car. These are super cute and simple. 
Our Christmas Fantasia set is more of a whimsical holiday session, with non-traditional, bold colors like purple, teal, pink, and lime green. We have photographed both boys or girls on either set. 
There is no session fee for either of these, and packages start at $35. Don’t miss this opportunity to capture your 2014 Christmas memories!
