Jinie was an absolute pleasure to work with for my maternity shoot and I was (and am!) so, so happy with all of the pictures. Throughout the entire process, Jinie made me feel very comfortable and in my element–nothing felt cheesy or awkward or overly staged. She was also so flexible and resourceful–when the natural lighting in my home started to suffer and threatened to ruin my original idea of an indoor shoot, she took me outside and scouted pretty and photogenic locations on the spot. Some of my favorite pictures from the shoot are from the spontaneous outdoor portion! Finally, after receiving the final pictures, I was so impressed by her editing–ugly tags hanging from my blinds were erased as were the yellow road markings from our shoot outside. Now that my baby is finally here, I'm so glad that I have this beautiful collection of photos to look back on to remember my pregnancy journey.
I was SO pleased to have Jinie capture the sweet moments of our proposal, along with a mini-photo session right after. I love taking and collecting photos, but I unfortunately am not the best photo subject (I tend to freeze up in front of the camera). Jinie's professionalism and personableness came through in how she made me feel at ease and like I could be myself. I was thrilled to see the essence of both our personalities and raw emotions come to life in the photos. Both my (now) husband and I love all of our pictures. It warms my heart to have such a precious moment documented for us to visually remember. My only regret was not having a longer, full engagement session with her!
