Every so often you meet a couple that is fun, easy going but very camera shy. This was that couple. We spent an afternoon with Jocelyn and Travis at UBC taking photographs. Knowing they were a on the shy side of things, I knew that making them feel at ease was going to be key to their session.
Sometimes, this means that as a photographer we start off differently, something less intimate and more at a distance. Coaching them through to make them look great but not put them off the whole posing thing.
What really helped that day was that with the company of their dogs, Jocelyn and Travis looked more at ease. We had a great time at some more secluded places around UBC and listening to Jocelyn and Travis’s concern I think really went a long way to getting some wonderful photos.
