Being in the Spotlight

If you've followed my work at all, in the last two years or so, you've seen the lovely young woman I'm about to talk about.

Morgan has been a client of mine, on several occasions. She's also been kind enough to say yes, the times I've come up with some new idea I'd like to explore or a piece of new equipment that I wanted to try out. She's never complained and has gleefully come to my aid and rescue.

While there's no denying I love working with Morgan, with her beautiful skin, infectious smile and bubbly personality, I recently sat down with her to ask what she thinks about working with TS Gallant Photography. Here's that interview.

ME: How did you feel in those first moments in front of the camera?

MORGAN: I was VERY nervous. I didn't know what to expect and had no idea what to do.

ME: How long did that nervousness last?

MORGAN: Hmm, I'd have to say just a few minutes, like less than 5 minutes of being petrified.

ME: Why the change? What made the nervousness go away so quickly?

MORGAN: Honestly, I'd have to say it was you. You just kept talking to me, encouraging me, giving advice and direction, telling me what to do to look my best. The sneak peeks also helped. It was extremely empowering to see the images come alive and transform from an idea that we talked about to being seen in real life on the back of your camera. Amazing!

ME: What were your thoughts when you first saw the images of you?

MORGAN: "WOW"! That's what I just kept thinking; "WOW"!

ME: (laughing) Well, that's pretty descriptive but could you tell me a little more. Why "wow"?

MORGAN: Well, it's because you were able to capture what I didn't even know was there. I just looked so beautiful and kept thinking "Wait, that's me".

ME: What would you say is the best part of being photographed by TS Gallant Photography?

MORGAN: It was just working with the two of you. You guys are hilarious! You're really fun and funny when it's just you but when it's both of you, together, you just have this energy and play off each other in such a way that you put me right at ease and give me confidence; confidence both in myself and also in that I know you'll get awesome images and make me look great!

ME: What would you say to someone looking for a local portrait photographer?

MORGAN: Oh, I'd definitely send them to TS Gallant Photography. You have great, original ideas and always make me look phenomenal but you are also easily inspired and explore and expand in ways to make the idea yours and even better. I love working with you and would tell anyone they just have to do it!
