My imagery is honest, intimate, and joyful. My heart is truly drawn to reflecting the connections and stories between siblings, spouses, and parents. I want to memorialize your moments of joy, discovery, and affection.
I create timeless photographs on-location, combining storytelling portraiture with some gently posed images (because who doesn't still love a few good direct smiles!). However, my work is greatly candid in nature which allows me to catch children at play and families interacting authentically. I use light masterfully rather than rely on backdrops and props. I want to tell your story and make pictures you will connect with years from now- images that move you because they trigger a memory of an emotion or moment that you deeply experienced. Your session will be laid back, stress-free, personal, and most of all, fun.
I spend a great deal of time with my clients getting to know them before the session, planning the perfect location, assisting with wardrobe selection, and also helping to select heirloom products after the session. These services are included when you invest in a portrait experience with me.
I photograph families and children in their homes or outdoors. I will guide you into the best light and help you to relax so you can play, cuddle, and giggle together. Would you like to harvest veggies from your summer garden together? Capture those tiny hands covered in dirt and the big smiles when they pick the season's first carrot? Want to blow bubbles and play sidewalk chalk together? How about snuggling up on the couch and reading after making pancakes together?
Maybe it's just running through a wildflower field and spinning till you're dizzy. I'm there. Real life moments you want to hold onto forever because they really do slip away before you are ready.
