There are some moments we wish we could stretch as long as possible.  Life might not allow that.  But with a photograph, the rules of time don't apply.  A photograph is timeless.  It captures who we are, the moment we are existing in right now, and all the feelings that come with it.  Whether it is a candid photograph of a family day in the park, a one-on-one session, or the energy of a room, a good photo results from a good rapport between the photographer and the subject.  Be your true self in front of the lens, and it will create a photo that communicates your true essence.  And gives you all the "feels".

Just be yourself, and I'll take care of the rest.
