We hear it all the time.  ‘I HATE having my picture taken’!

It makes me sympathize with my Dentist (who is quite a nice guy, too) but man, does that statement make me feel lousy…  Nobody cares how I feel.  I know. sigh!

But this also makes me sad to think that these people (hating picture day) had bad experiences with photographers.  Why else would they ‘hate’ the memory?

I love what I do for many reasons, but mostly because I have fun.  My sessions are fun.  My clients have fun.  I never need to 1-2-3 SMILE, because they already ARE!  Mostly I’ve got to say “Okay, can we PLEASE try to not smile?”  I love that.  Business Headshot sessions should be fun, too!

If you hate having your picture taken, I’m sorry for the crappy ‘professional’ that messed it up for you.  Let me turn that frown upside down!  And make you look great in the process.

Let's have a fun photo shoot

About Stuart Hasson Studios

I want to scream this from the Mountain Tops: PORTRAITS ARE IMPORTANT!
As I get older, this feeling reveals itself so often.  We say it WAY too often; “I wish I had just one more, better, current, great (whatever) picture of my Dad, sister, best friend or child… and now I’ll never have it.”  It doesn’t have to be that heavy,  but the feeling is the same.  Portraits are Important.

This image reminds me of when I could jump off the porch and still walk 🙂
We were in Falmouth, ME with a client family creating wonderful images with my retired Hasselblad (film) camera.  I’m back there now (in my mind) and I can smell the warm sea breeze, hear the kids laughing and the parents putting up with my dumb jokes.  I was on top of the world.

This picture is about 30 years old but it brings me back every time I look at it.  THAT’s why I’m a photographer: To help people REMEMBER all of the good things in their Life!
