I would love to be your photographer.
When I first started out, I had a lot of ideas about the photos I would be taking for other people. And then I realized something- people don't want to hire me to take the kinds of photos I want to take. They want to hire me so I can take the kinds of photos THEY want. It makes me happy when the people I am photographing are happy. So when we schedule a shoot, I am going to send you a list of questions. This is going to help me understand what you are looking for from our session. Then we are going to create those photos. Choosing a photographer is a personal decision, and I know that if you want to work with me, it is because you have looked at my work and feel I would be a good fit for your family.
What kinds of photos do I take? You can look at the portfolio section of my website, or see the descriptions below.
LIFESTYLE Images/ Posed portraits
This is what you want for your holiday card, hanging above your fireplace, the photos that Grandma will love. I am happy to come to your home to take these photos, and we can take them indoors or outdoors. We can go to a park, or another place that is meaningful to your family. We will also make sure that whenever possible, we will capture amazing and magical light. Great light is one of the secrets of great photos.
This means I am going to come and spend time in your world, and I am going to take photos of your everyday. I am going to capture all of the details, and the authentic connections between you and your people. The love, and the tantrums, maybe. Breakfast, bath time, crafts at the kitchen table. Anything your family does that you want to remember always.
You tell me!
You want me to shoot your toddler's birthday party? Yes. You need a new headshot for your website? Got it. A wedding? Well, that is not my usual thing, but let's talk about it. Need photos because you are selling your house? Absolutely. You want to give your parents a gift of a posed portrait for their 50th anniversary? Yes! I love shooting a wide variety of things. I am in the process of building a studio in my home. I love shooting in natural light, and am mastering the use of artificial light. I am working on learning and improving ALL OF THE TIME! If you need a photographer, let's talk.
