Delightful. Energetic. Whimsical.
These are the words that come to mind when I look at Grace Louise Photography. There are some people that as soon as you see their picture, you know you want to be friends with them and find out all about their world. I was fortunate enough to get a little insight into her delightful photography and what inspires her. Grace Louise of Grace Louise Photography is this week’s Member of the Week.
I asked Grace how she started in photography, she answered, “ As a kid I used to play around with film and Polaroid cameras, and finally made the leap to digital in January 2011. I was finishing Nursing School at the time and was very busy, so several months later when I finished I decided to make photography more than just a hobby, and so I started Grace Louise Photography. As a Nurse, I only work 3 days a week, which has allowed me plenty time to grow my new business. It has also allowed me to have fun and be pretty laid back, as it is not my primary source of income.”
I am always interested to know where members get their inspiration from, when I asked Grace she said, ” My inspiration comes from everything around me, from the beauty I see in nature, my love for God, my hubby who is a very talented musician, my fellow photographers, family and friends, and the uniqueness I see in every single person who steps in front of my camera.My favorite things to photograph are kids laughing and making faces, families loving on one another, couples adoring each other, people being themselves in a comfortable environment. Lifestyle sessions and events where special moments are captured candidly are my true passion.”
As photographers, we always like to know what’s in the bag. Grace answered, “ Inside my beautiful Kelly Moore B Hobo bag is a full frame Nikon d700 and d7000. Nikkor 50 1.4, a Nikkor 24-70 2.8, and a Lensbaby Composer Pro with the Sweet 35 optic. Though I shoot mostly natural light, I also always carry my sb700 speedlight with a Gary Fong and a reflector. Shoved in the side pockets you will find memory cards, extra batteries, colored gels, extra filters, spare keys, multiple chapsticks, candy, misplaced cash and checks for session fees and tons of gum wrappers.”
So in wrapping up, I asked Grace what what type of advice would you give your younger self just starting out. She answered, “ Relax! The client’s mood and behaviors will be a direct reflection of yours, so always have fun, and don’t take yourself so seriously! Oh, and sometimes it’s ok to say NO. When I first started, I was unsure of myself and didn’t want to make waves, so when someone requested an open field on a bright sunny day with terrible lighting, I agreed or when family members suggested certain poses I knew weren’t flattering, I said sure. I ruined a lot of good pictures because of my uncertainty. Now, I do take input, but I assure the clients I know what I am doing when they suggest something that I know won’t work.”
Thanks Grace for your time. If you would like to see more of her work you can find her corner of the web HERE.
