razi wilson photography + give.away!

if you’ve been wanting to: take a photo of your kids before they turn into emo-teens, capture your adorable grandparents holding hands, or get some photos with the man/woman/child/puppy/landscape that makes your heart beat fast, then you might be very interested in today’s giveaway.

razi wilson is a photographer slash therapist slash music video beauty slash awesome person. she’s someone i wish i saw more of in this big city we live in, so i was delighted when she reached out to me to see if i could do a giveaway of one of her photography packages on my blog!

here’s a little bit more about razi:

// describe your photography style in 5 words: natural, creative, emotional, beautiful, documentary-ish,

// what is your LEAST favorite subject matter to take photographs of? Events other than weddings. I find it hard to deal with posing people and getting really cool shots, and lighting is usually challenging. I like natural light and open spaces.

// tell me about one of your most favorite shots.

This photo really says it all about my style and sentiment. It is about the feeling and the moment. I love to see the persons personality in the photo the joy or the pain in their eyes. This little girl was so mature for her age (6).  She just had way too much experience for a girl her age and i find this photo paralyzing and deep.  I love taking children’s portraits, they are so raw and real and uninhibited, they don’t know how to hide who they are.

// so…hipstamatic – awesome or annoying? I love that cool photography is accessible, I find that more and more people are using photography as a creative medium to express themselves, so kudos to all the iphone photogs. I think people can make so many things look cool with all those fancy filters.  It’s super fun!  What i find a little annoying is that there are real photographers using actual poloroids to make art and all these apps kind of make them indistinguishable – not the art, that speaks for itself, but the medium. And now everything is in cyberspace, so i feel for those artists who are doing it the real way.

// what do people underestimate when it comes to taking a great photograph? I think they underestimate the balance of technique and art that goes into making a great image. Not only are you waiting for that look or that movement you have to be adjusting aperture, shutter speed and frame the photo just right, thinking about the environment and what you want to include in the composition.  Some photographers just see it.  And i think that’s an enormous skill and talent.

    This is my Fav! NOT just because it’s my family :) but because I think it shows Razi’s “eye” as well as her unique and creative style. Here’s a lil’ background on the photo: This was a day when my husband & I were not prepared to be in these photos (we just wanted our boys) but we needed to figure out a way to get my youngest son who was being shy and clingy…to cooperate in the photo shoot. Razi came up with this great idea to get him comfortable with the shots… and it became our favorite photo!

    Razi is amazing and even though I LOVE all my wedding pics she did, I choose this little girl as my favorite pic because every time I see this picture it makes me smile so big! And Razi’s artistic abilities are so evident with the wheat field, the colors, and shooting that perfect moment. Love all the work!

    Tough call. All her belly photos were also beautiful.
