Difference Between a Snapshot and a Portrait

Many of my potential clients (the ones who do not book me), have the idea that professional photography is just pushing a button.  Why do they need to pay such high prices when their friend or family member can push a button?

A candid photo of you as you look everyday is just a snapshot.  Some people (especially men) prefer this type of photography.  If a snapshot is all you want, then by all means do not waste your money on a professional photographer.  Anyone can take a snapshot.

However, if you want portraits of you or your family that make you look better than you do in real life, i.e., puts you in poses that make you look slimmer or reduces the size of your nose or makes that one “crazy” eye look normal; a portrait that has great use of lighting and “looks professional;” we encourage you to hire a professional like Donna Ditges at Foto Flix Photography.

added tan Donna’s clients rant and rave over how good they look in their poses and especially over their retouches.  Donna can remove all your cellulite and wrinkles, if that’s what you want.  Some people prefer just a slight reduction of wrinkles; whatever her clients want, that is what Donna will provide.
