Benefits of Having a 2nd Shooter/ Assistant

In the spirit of keeping you, our clients and potential clients, well-informed about the photography industry, we decided to expand upon this common ‘frequently asked question’.  It seems to be a common assumption of new clients that the presence of a 2nd shooter (aka photographer) or assistant adds to the overall cost of a session.  For many clients on a tight budget or those looking to allocate expenses elsewhere, the “cost” assumption is further expanded upon with the idea that a 2nd shooter or assistant is unnecessary.  While employing additional personnel may appear to add to the bottom line of your session, the presence of said personnel enables us to deliver so much more while retaining competitive pricing. If you’ve ever witnessed or participated in a photography session, or even taken a glimpse inside a photography studio, you may have noticed a lot more equipment than merely a photographer and his/her camera.  The equipment needed to adequately capture your priceless moments while adhering to Ahnvee’s strict quality standards will vary depending on your venue to the time of day, your clothing and/ or prop choices and everything in between.  Given the fact that photographers are expected to capture every detail, […]

Commercial Photography vs Portrait Photography

If you’re looking into photography to promote your business or service, you may be surprised to that pricing varies from that of a typical portrait session.  Not everyone understands how the processes differ, and as such, we’ve done our best to explain the fine points for those who will someday be requiring this service. What’s the difference between commercial photography and consumer photography? Consumer photos are taken for the client’s personal use, and individual prints are usually ordered from the photographer taking the photos.  Once consumers have purchased the prints of their choice, those prints will generally come with a print release that allows the consumer to print from their desired vendor, but this takes into consideration that the photos are not intended for mass-reproduction. The copyright to any images taken always remains with the photographer.  Essentially, the package price paid includes a license fee that enables the client to use the art that we create for them.  Being in possession of digital files or proofs does not give the client rights to reproduce them.  This is where the main differences between commercial and consumer photography come into play, because commercial images are specifically intended to be reproduced. Commercial photos […]

October 20, 2017 by Tiffany Lemoine in lifestyle, Maternity 0 Comments

A New Bundle of Joy It’s pretty hard not to have a big, cheesy smile when looking at the pictures from Kelsey and Chase’s family lifestyle maternity session. They are expecting a new baby boy, Cian. When Kelsey contacted me to shoot this special moment, I was thrilled. She and Chase are good friends of mine,but let’s face it–who wouldn’t want to take pictures of such a beautiful family? My favorite hidden gem in Central Louisiana was the perfect location. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing this beautiful family’s eagerness for their newest bundle of joy. Parker perfectly reflected his excitement for a new baby brother. Parker’s precious facial expressions and big blue eyes were to die for. He is just so cute! Cian is already loved beyond belief. I can’t wait to meet him! To see more of my family lifestyle photos, click here: http://ahnveephotography.com/lifestyle-portfolio/
