Benefits of Shooting with a Professional Photographer


Long time no see! Well, if you have not noticed already, I have managed to successfully migrate Enclothed Cognition from Blogger to I have been wanting to make the jump for quite some time now, but to be honest, the prospect of switching platforms seemed exhausting and challenging to me. Nonetheless, I finally put aside a full day to make the transition from blog to self-hosting. I decided to go with the webhosting company, Siteground, because the reviews were really good and to be honest, they were running a decent Labor Day Weekend Sale (LOL). However, this is a topic for a different day..

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting with Sophie in Philadelphia and these photos are the result! To be honest, I was a little nervous going because I do not have too much experience shooting with a professional photographer. If you did not know, the majority of my blog photos are shot by me with my trusty self-timer and tripod. However, there is definitely a lot of merit in shooting with another person!

From this shoot, I learned the benefits of shooting with a photographer. I realize this might be common sense to some of you, but prior to this, I never put much thought into it because I liked being a one-woman show. Yet, shooting with Sophie was a lot of fun! I got to shoot in a location I normally would not be comfortable lugging my tripod to. Plus, nothing beats the crispness and the unique shots you can get when having an actual person behind the camera.

Building a relationship with a photographer can also be a really valuable partnership. For instance, I was able to get high-quality images to utilize on my blog and social media outlets and Sophie is able to gain more exposure for her work. I honestly think one of the setbacks is not working solely on your own time and at your own pace. You do need to count on the photographer to send you the shots in a reasonable timeframe.

That being said, I am definitely going to be more open to meeting up with any willing photographers who want to work together. If you are based in Philly, holla at me! I am also going to New York tomorrow to attend one NYFW presentation and I’ll also be meeting up with another professional photographer. I can’t wait to share with you what I will be wearing!
