Professional Child Photographer
Karen Maugans ~ Greenleaf Photo Studio
Most parents today have digital and cell phone cameras that they use daily to take pictures of their children. While these snap-shots are a wonderful way to document their children’s day-to-day activities, most parents do not have the equipment or expertise to capture images that are truly worthy of printing, framing and displaying in their homes. Many parents leave the digital images on their cameras or computers in huge folders that are later nearly impossible to organize. Sadly, everyone has stories about their digital photos that were accidently lost or deleted. Hiring a professional, experienced child photographer will assure you that your child’s photos will be creatively captured, technically sound, safely archived, and ready for framing.
Child photography can present extraordinary opportunities to discover hidden thoughts and feelings that are not always apparent in day-to-day interactions. Professional photographer Karen Maugans understands that children need to feel a sense of security and acceptance for them to show the true nature of who they are as independent individuals. Karen’s patience and unhurried interaction with children allows the “real child under the smiles” to radiate. She underplays the presence of the camera, and wouldn’t dream of telling a child to pose or say “cheese”. Children who are not expected to perform for the camera during a photography session feel more free to experiment, laugh with true joy, and show the soulfulness that lies under the surface.
