Kids - Expect the unexpected when it comes to kids, but what I’ve learned is that the unexpected creates amazing photos! At the beginning of every photo-shoot, I give each child enough time through play and conversation to get to know me, feel comfortable with a camera being around, and allow their true spirits to shine through. it’s important to know that ‘the subjects’ aren’t always predictable. Say no to “cheese” – someone in our childhoods, we heard that asking a child to say “cheese” would present an authentic smile, but the reality is that a goofy grin appears. I find that a candid expression from a child can be brought about when a bit of silliness and fun is inserted into the session, and kids really enjoy our time together!
Family – it’s where life begins, love never ends, and no matter what happens, at the end of the day, it’s where we belong. The special moments you share with your family are the most important things in the world to capture. Professional photography uses a relaxing, fun and friendly environment to successfully tell your family’s unique story throughout the years. Family portraits are particularly important as new additions to your family are welcomed, children grow up, and a variety of changes happen over the years. At Amy Cheng Photography, my goal is to capture the beautiful bond you share, in your special family.
Pets - Can Fido come? I often get asked if pets can be included in the family photos. Of course they can, pets are always welcome! Working with pets is something that I enjoy and know it’s important to the families I serve. Don’t leave them at home, bring them along. TIP – it’s a great idea to bring an extra pair of hands (someone who isn’t being photographed) along to take care of the pet when necessary.
