First and foremost, I am a storyteller. Over time, I've realized that I not only have a knack for taking quality
photographs, but I also have a natural talent to connect with people in ways that allow them to feel
comfortable and natural. Each
photo becomes a literal piece of art. Emotion. Capturing love, tears, laughter, joy and
friendship is key to the success of my work. I love catching people during these pinnacles of emotion.
Those split second moments that are priceless.
I decided a while ago that I didn’t want my own studio. For many reasons: to push my creativity and to explore new places. There’s something to be said about showing up to a client’s home, or a location that strikes a chord on their heart strings or fuels them with nostalgia. Capturing them in their true comfort, sometimes even the beautiful but unpleasant discomfort. My sessions are completely tailored to YOU, and I work with you to make sure I am telling your story from my creative perspective.
Don’t think of your session as a photoshoot, think of it as an experience. My goal is to give you an escape from the every day routine. A chance to reconnect, whether that's with yourself or with your person. An experience you won't soon forget.
My clients seem to quickly become my friends, and the session then becomes a a few hours of laughter & connection. I will direct you the entire time and walk you through the session until you're dancing through it on your own.

My best advice: Just relax. I know, much easier said than done, but within 20 minutes of the session, we’re going to be laughing and finding yourself lost in the moments. I capture the natural interactions that you probably aren’t even aware how beautiful they are until you see them through my perspective. It’s not just shoot, shoot, shoot when you show up, we have a good time and we spend some quality time together! All of my clients receive some questionnaires from me leading up to the session and that is how I get to learn a little bit about your personality and the type of session you’re looking for.
Yes, with limitations. All clients must sign a model release. This is my art work, which I want to share with the world. Not only is it my art work, it's my profession. You likely wouldn't be looking at booking your session with me if you couldn't see photos before hand, so understand that is how I gain new clients, grow my business and get to continue to do what I love for a living. With that being said, your session is YOUR session. These photos are for YOU. Any and all photos shared can be run by you prior to if requested. Every session includes a discussion about your situation and we come up with an agreement then and there for special circumstances.
Yes, for all final images I do full edits before they get posted in your online album or shared on social media. Although I always find the original version of my clients much more raw & beautiful, I will retouch any stretch mark or blemish, unwanted scar or wrinkles, etc. that is asked of me. However, if you want extensive retouching done on your images — such as making your arms (or any other body parts) “skinnier”, I might not be the photographer for you! I am here to embrace you for ALL you are, AS you are.
