Before You Read Any Further

Thank You for taking an interest in Different Mind Designs. It is very much appreciated. I ask every client, "How comfortable are you in front of the camera?" Some are moderately comfortable, but most say they aren't comfortable at all. And that's ok. The camera can be pretty intimidating. It feels like you're being put on the spot and having to concentrate on not looking weird and awkward.

 

Well, I'm here to tell you that you're not alone in feeling like this. Looking awkward is the last thing you have to worry about. Your experience will be comforting, judgment-free, empowering, relaxed, and fun. So if you are interested in working with me, continue forward to learn more about your journey into creating the most incredible photo of yourself that you have ever seen. And don't forget to fill out the form below to help me serve you the best way possible.

Here's What You Need to Know

To get a better understanding of how it all works, this page provides you with everything you need to know about your photoshoot including the mission, vision, process, tips and more. Please be sure to check it out.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a fun experience through high-quality photography sessions; while also instilling confidence.

This means that you are highly encouraged to step outside of your comfort zone and be ok with any vulnerabilities you face. This is how you are motivated and empowered to step into your confidence. You are your unique brand of beauty, and your confidence begins with accepting that. Everyone is different. We all come in different sizes, shapes, skin tones, hair types, etc. The point is that you are perfect just the way you are, and you should celebrate that.

Vision Statement

Helping you find your confidence, one photo at a time.

 

Your photography session is not about paying your photographer to take pretty pictures. Instead, it's an investment to connect with, celebrate yourself, and accept who you are. It's about preserving your legacy and understanding that you are the beholder of your beauty. It's about impressing yourself instead of others. And I want to capture that moment for you to look at later to remember how awesome you truly are.

Preparation Tips

Preparation is key, and it never hurts. So here are some things to consider to help the experience flow as efficiently as possible.

  • Arrive at least 15-30 mins early to ensure that we utilize the time adequately.

  • Arrive in your first outfit so that we can work efficiently.

  • Bring a comfortable pair of shoes because some locations are versatile and may require some walking. 

  • Bring snacks and drinks for small children to avoid crankiness.

  • Have someone with you for comfort and support because a sense of familiarity helps boost confidence.

  • For special occasions, I highly recommend booking your session at least two weeks or more ahead of time.
