From five… until ninety-five…
nothing is more powerful than love.
We share our love daily, but there is one day set apart from all the others; Valentine’s Day. This is the day when roses are overpriced and chocolates add pounds to thousands of women on weight control programs. (Unless, of course, you’re five or ninety-five.) But, for all of us in-between, there is a present that says, “I love you”, that will be cherished forever. A Valentine’s Day present that will always make you smile, won’t have you worrying about your waistline, one that you can share with each other, display for others to enjoy… a gift that only you can give.
This is priceless, but fortunately, at an affordable price that won’t destroy your budget.
All you need to do is call (808-699-4330), schedule an appointment, and leave the rest to me; your photographer.
After we talk about the details (usually over a cup of coffee, prior to the session date), I may go into my prop room to pack some things that will enhance your session; it may be something as simple as a book of love poems, a rose, an umbrella to kiss beneath, a gown to wear into the ocean or champagne glasses to toast before the sunset. Sometimes a man’s white collar shirt is as sexy on the woman as it is on the man (let’s add some suspenders, too).
We will talk about which time of daylight will work best for you; the morning sunshine or the golden glow of the sunset. Do you want the ocean as a backdrop and playground or would you rather walk in the woods to let the shadows play upon your bodies? Do you to want photos that you can share with your friends and family? How about some that are a bit sexier to place on your bedside table or in your wallet?
So many people claim they are not photogenic. Boloney! Everyone, regardless of age, size or personality can have fantastic photographs. (But, I can understand this fear of looking terrible in a photo. I was one of those people for years, whenever anyone pointed a camera at me I would grimace or fake a smile, both unattractive expressions.)
It wasn’t until I became a photographer myself (safe behind the camera) that I learned the best photographs are captured by a professional. A snapshot taken by Uncle Ted or your sister may not show your best features, your best angle, the best lighting, the best poses and best spirit. You have to trust the photographer to place you in the best light, possibly to use props and especially to create an atmosphere of fun while relaxing, enjoying the moment. Allow me the pleasure of setting the stage for romance (and you may even forget there is a camera pointing at you).
Directing a shoot is great fun for me, I can have you role-play a scene or simply suggest moving your arm a little to the right or placing your lips close to one another but not quiet touching.
I want this to be a fun, exciting activity for you, so leave the photography to me. My enthusiasm and passion is contagious and our energy will naturally flow, even the most camera-shy people will find themselves letting their spirit shine through… and that is exactly what I want. To Capture the Spirit… of the Moment.
The state of being ‘in love’ is one of the best times of your life, it is like nothing else. It fills your heart with joy to dream of the days ahead. Let me capture this spirit in photographs.
But, having love that has been tested through the trials of time; this is the golden love, this is the best love. Let me capture these moments.
This year do something very special… come before my camera and bring home a Valentine’s Day package with hundreds of photos that you will cherish forever.
Gift certificates are available in sweet Valentine’s Day cards, tied with a red ribbon, a rose and a chocolate that can be placed in your sweetheart’s hands. Ordering on-line is available. Contact me through my website: http://www.donnawelchphotography.com.
You will “wow” the special person in your life with your romantic gift.
Here is a slide show of some of the couples I have photographed… Each couple was so different in front of my camera, yet they all share the special gift of love. To me, there is nothing sweeter than couples in love.
