GoodNCrazy Photography Spring 2015 Update

WARNING: Amateur Ahead… You Get What You Pay For!


On the professional photography thing? Having way too fun to call it work.

Baby Shower Macro cheese tray goodncrazy photography Carissa Rogers Fort Mill, SCI’m charging about half of what I think the going rate should be. I have NO idea what REAL photographers actually charge for Family portrait sessions here in the Fort Mill  area, senior portraits or event photography. But I’m charging $75 per hour of session time till the end of the summer 2015.

I plan to double my rates in September.
For now I remind everyone I am an amateur and you ‘get what you pay for’!

My goal is to get much better at not just ‘taking’ the photos but processing and work-flow faster as well. Each photo shoot tends to have its own lighting and has a very different feel to the end product. So far I let the session tell me what it wants to be when it grows up.

One group shot in early spring I swear came out looking very pink with almost autumn colors. While another one shot on a hot June afternoon reminded me of cool shades of winter?

So far besides my own family photography which included a couple rounds of Senior portraits, Church Prom (plus) High School Prom and then High School Graduation I have managed to book several paid gigs this summer!

And let’s not forget 8th Grade Track photos and a last minute Little League Capture. Because I just happened to have my camera with me that night!

First Up. A lovely family with 6 kids…

Shooting in their rustic front yard and focusing on that fence line was terribly fun! I wanted a not-so-standard family group shot. But nothing super bizarre either.

A Sweet 5 year old’s birthday party—

I was there for 3 total hours, and nearly filled two cards. Note to self, buy more camera cards! Gave myself carpal tunnel holding the camera up that long!

Coming soon….

Another sibling group, then the Engagement couple’s Wedding (which I’m freaking out about!) and a family birthday event for a neighbor. The plan is to spend every few dollars I make right now on new camera equipment.. a new camera base. An 85MM lens. For now I’ll rent some equipment for the Wedding (which I’m freaking out about!). Oh. Did I already mention that?
