What is Fine Art Photography, and why is it different than a DIY photo session?

by | Sep 1, 2021 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

If you have been following me along my journey in Fine Art Photography. You may or may not be wondering what exactly is “fine art photography”. How is it any different than a DIY photo session? My values and artistic vision as a photographer when creating art for my clients is a luxury experience all on its own!

What is fine art?

To me being a Fine art photographer is more than your regular portrait/lifestyle photography. Fine art is a creative type of photography.  This type of photography is a visual piece of art. Many of these photographers have a vision before carrying out the actual session. During a session with me we will plan out every detail of the session, and my vision for the session. We are working to create beautiful artwork for your home, to hang on the wall to cherish day in and day out. Fine art photography is timeless and creative. Many people will embark on “DIY”, but some people just do not possess a creative soul, like an artist.

Creativity with a vison.

Sometimes I will cast model calls to create a specific “vision” that I want to portray. There is no rhyme or reason to my vision sometimes, other than it just comes to me. I want to create a beautiful piece of art, I have every detail in my mind, I just need someone to photograph. I love when my clients are willing to take advice and follow along with my artistic ideas. Together this really helps when creating art!

Creation of artwork for our home.

What better way to display our portraits other than fine art photography? Yes, we can hang our DIY portraits all over our home too, but how many of you actually even print your photos? During a session with me, we will go over how we want to display our artwork for years to come. This helps with the vision of the image. Instead of your photos being left on a CD to die, we will create timeless printed images together, leaving all the work to me with luxury products and a luxury experience.

We had the pleasure of working with Kayla for my son's one year cake smash photoshoot... the time she took to make sure every detail of my vision came true... and the talent and creativity she put into editing is hard to beat. We love every SINGLE photo it's too hard to choose just one.... Total professional, amazing product... would make drive all the way to Fayetteville again

My daughter had the opportunity to work with Kayla and the traveling dress! Sha had so much fun. She did not stop talking about her "photo shoot" for days and could not wait to tell her friends and teachers. Kayla did an amazing job and the photos came out bsolutely stunning! I highly recommend Kayla for your photography needs!

I absolutely loved watching Kayla so easily work with our four children and many animals! She captured our kids’ personalities so beautifully and managed the animals so easily, and that’s saying something when there’s a chicken, puppy, and two horses involved! The final prints are gorgeous; they half people in their tracks when they see the portraits on the walls. I highly recommend Kayla’s work.
