Anywho, to start with I needed an announcement photographer. As I mentioned here, I ended up working with Elizabeth Birdwell for these photos. To say that I am happy with my decision to work Elizabeth would possibly be the understatement of the century. I even have her scheduled to shoot our maternity photos and newborn photos as well!
Announcement Sign Found Here
So a little bit about my experience.
One thing I noticed right off the bat about Elizabeth was how quickly she responded to my inquiry for pricing! If I remember correctly she responded within 24 hours of me sending an email to her. The next thing I noticed was how kind and friendly she was! Her email was so enthusiastic and I could tell that she was excited about the shoots I was interested in as well as photography itself.
Once we decided to work together Elizabeth suggested that I start a pinterest board - a secret one - and that I invite her to it so she could get a feel of what I was looking to do. During the shoot she had the pinterest board up and ready on her phone and took the ideas we had found and made them even more amazing!
I think overall, other than the turnout of the pictures themselves, what impressed me most about Elizabeth was how much fun she made the shoot for Chris and me. I couldn't believe how relaxed she made Chris! He is normally super shy and can get really stiff during pictures - but she got him to relax and actually enjoy the process! Chris even mentioned at the end of the process how much he liked Elizabeth and enjoyed working with her.
Look at how chilled out he looks here:
I am so so excited to work with Elizabeth and can't wait to see how she photographs the maternity and newborn shoots. I just can't recommend her enough! She doesn't just do baby related shoots, she also photographs weddings, family sessions, and many other types of shoots.
