The Power of Professional Photography: Why It Beats Phone Snaps Every Time
Have you ever stopped to think about why professional photography is better than just using your phone to snap a quick pic?
Yes, phones these days have amazing cameras and it's so convenient to just use them to capture life's moments. But hear me out on this one, there are some pretty solid reasons why professional photography is worth investing in.
Professional photographers have top-of-the-line equipment, and we know how to use it to its fullest potential. We can adjust specific settings, lighting, posing and composition to create images that are truly stunning and captivating. On the other hand, even the best smartphone cameras can only do so much. The image quality they produce just can't compare to those taken by professional photographers with a high-end DSLR.
Professional photographers have years of experience and training under our belt. We know how to pose and direct our subjects to get the best shot possible. We also have a trained eye for detail and can see things that the average person might miss, like a tree sticking out of your head. So, while a phone snap might be a decent representation of what you saw in that moment, a professional photographer can create an image that truly captures the essence of the moment.
YOU IN THE PHOTO
If you're the person taking your own photos on your phone, you aren't in the photo. As mums, we take ALL the photos right? We take them of our kids, of our pets, of our husbands with the kids, but no one takes the photos of us. You need to exist in photos, and lets be honest here - would you rather your husband take the photo or an experienced professional with understanding of camera angles and posing to help you look your best?
Professional photography is for capturing the life milestone moments that you can never get back. Sure, you can take all the photos you want with your phone, but when it comes to the important times in life – your wedding day, the birth of your child, a special family reunion – you want to be sure that you have high-quality images that you can cherish for years to come. These are the moments that you will look back on and relive over and over again, and you want to make sure that they are captured in the best way possible.
Finally, let's talk about creativity. Professional photographers bring a level of creativity and artistry to our work that is simply not possible with a phone camera. We use our imagination and technical skills to create images that are not only beautiful but also tell a story. Whether it's a dramatic portrait or a story-telling image, professional photographers have the ability to create artworks that are truly one-of-a-kind.
As a side-note, let's think about this for a moment.

Pay for things
THINGS MY DSLR CAMERA CAN DO
Have you ever heard the phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none"? Well, thats kind of the point I am making here. The more things a device can do, the lower the quality of each of those things. When a device has a single purpose, it is designed to do that one thing to the highest level possible. It's the master of the trade.
So, there you have it! While a phone camera is certainly convenient (and let's admit, they do a pretty good job 90% of the time) it just can't compare to the quality, experience, and creativity that a professional photographer can bring to the table.
If you have a life milestone coming up, or if you are a mum who wants to have photos with her family where you actually look and feel great in the photos, please get in touch, I would love to hear from you!
