Hello, I am Margarett.


Finding a photographer can be overwhelming. There are many talented creatives to choose from, so how do you choose? The top three things to look at before you hire a photographer are


  1. style
  2. personality
  3. budget


Photographers have different shooting and editing styles. Looking through a portfolio you will see the artistic eye of the photographer shine through.


Are you looking to capture your pregnancy, the birth of a baby, a child's milestone, or update your family photos? Then you need a photographer that specializes in maternity and birth or a portrait or lifestyle shoot. Do you have a story to tell? Then a brand or editorial style shoot is what you are looking for. Do you have a product to market? Inquire about their experience in brand or commercial photography. Editing styles vary widely and can be bright, light, true to color, colorful, airy, dark or moody. Make sure your photographers editing style matches your current wall art in your home or your vision for your brand.


Personality is very important. You want to feel comfortable with the person who is taking your pictures. Having photographs taken can be stressful and uncomfortable. We always want to look our best, naturally. If you don't click (pun intended) with your photographer, it can make an already awkward situation even less enjoyable. Our least favorite pictures of ourselves are when we are tense, stressed or feel awkward because we don't know how to stand or where to put our hands. Your photographer should be able to move you effortlessly through the session, curating the experience.


Finally, are they within your budget? If not, inquire if they will be offering mini sessions soon which may allow you to book the photographer of your dreams while staying in your budget.


My photography journey started out as a hobby while traveling throughout Asia 8 years ago. To read more about me and how my hobby turned into a passion, click here. I hope to connect with you and learn if I am a good fit for your photography needs.
