How to choose a professional portrait photographer Part Two | McLean, VA Photographer

We discussed your needs or more what you are naturally inclined to when it comes to getting things done or prioritizing.  This post will discuss the types of photographers out there that specialize and don't specialize in different services/genres.

Part Two : Genre

Family? Couple? Wedding? Infant? professional headshots? There are so many photographers out there that specialize in only specific genre of portrait photography.   Some do it all.  There are pros and cons to both. 

Every genre requires a special technique that you may need to master with practice and education.  I imagine studio head shots to be very different from child portraiture or lifestyle natural light photographer.  There are some things only those veterans know by just doing it over and over again.  Specialized portrait photographers probably have seen a lot during their practice and probably have gone through different circumstances and remedies.  

The photographers who do it all from weddings to birth are perfect if you have a lot of different needs and you don't want to bother looking for another professional.  Imagine going to a mall and getting everything in one place.  The downside is if they haven't been in a business for very long, they haven't really had much time to develop a expertise in that genre you will be serviced in.

There are a few who pick and choose some genre to cater to their clients.  For example, YCP will rarely do events, weddings or posed infant portraits.  YCP will however do family portraits, children/tween portraits, lifestyle head shots for working parents as well as senior portraits.  YCP services the needs of a busy family but does not claim to be the master of all trades that exist in the portrait world.  I think to be great at a few related genres are a good compromise between two types of photographers.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

On a side note, I will be introducing small businesses around McLean VA.  There are some amazing people that provide services/goods to our neighborhood and I thought it would be nice to make this neighborhood a smaller place.

This moment can be forever in McLean, Tysons Corner, Vienna Virginia

Yes!  A Photo can bring so many memories!  Do you know you could move to a different continent and have 10 years pass but when you open that album or look at that photo on the wall, you remember a lot of things that happened around that time?

How you were feeling, how your child was cranky, what made her laugh, what was important to her, why that location was special, what we did after, how we prepared, what we did while we were waiting for the photographer and so on.

A single image can let you relive your past.  That moment will last forever  You could argue any image will do but there's something special about a professional photo.  How the subject pop in beautiful color and the background disappearing just to let the child stand out.  The perfect moment that capture the smile or even the inquisitive turn and etc.
