Jaime Brandel is a true artist. We are always amazed at the special 'moments in time' she manages to capture when our family gathers. Her casual approach to a photo shoot allows everyone to be relaxed and comfortable and more themselves. The photographs Jaime takes feel so natural and genuine because she has a remarkable ability to connect with each of her subjects. She truly understands her craft and has incredible skill with lighting and composition that enable her to work her magic. We are so thankful for the memories she has helped us create.
Jaime has taken photos of our special family events for over 10 years. Her gift is her perspective and the ease in which she makes us all feel so relaxed and comfortable... even the dog! The result? Very natural, un-staged photos in which she's managed to capture everyone's personality, and those 'off camera' moments. We love them.
This past summer, Jaime took photos of our youngest son's graduation. She chose a different background from our older son's photos, which I love, so I was a little skeptical at first, but completely trusted Jaime. The results were stunning! How she was able to make various groups of people look amazing in front of some shrubbery is her talent. But she used the light, the colours, unique frames and various groupings of people to create our new family favourites.
Jaime is a pleasure to work with. She is extremely talented and all of our favourite family photos are the ones Jaime took.
Thanks Jaime for such a great photo experience! We were a bit nervous at first but you made us all feel comfortable and the photos turned out great. I'm so glad we went ahead with the photo shoot and we've decided to make it an annual event!
