I love authentic images that are filled with emotion. I love colors and warm sunshine. I seek out genuine moments that make me and you feel something. Most photos are lightly posed, meaning I’ll help get you into place first and then encourage interaction and real expressions while we’re snapping away. If you want to sum it up in a couple of words, my work is most often categorized as lifestyle photography.
Sessions take place at golden hour, which is sunset or sunrise. The time of year and specific location will determine the exact time we'll meet.
Your gallery is posted 12 weeks after your session. Usually galleries are delivered much quicker, though.
The BEST thing you can do is to let go and enjoy! I know it’s hard not to be stressed before your session, but babies pick up on anxiety really easily. We’ll have the best chance at getting gorgeous images if we let them happen naturally (with a little guidance from me, of course!) I want your pictures to be amazing and will do all the hard work for you! Your only job is to relax and have fun.
I love getting to know my clients’ kids, even the ones who are shy/stubborn/you name it! I always approach the session as a new friend who’s just there to play and have a good time. I have all the patience in the world, and I find that being easy-going translates to happy kiddos. That being said, not every moment of the session is perfect, and that’s totally OK — in fact, it’s encouraged! In 10 years, I’m willing to bet that you’ll cherish the image of your toddler crying fake tears just as much as the one that we took 10 seconds later of him happily running toward the camera. My goal is to capture the personalities of the kids in front of my lens, including all of the beautiful quirks, details, and small moments that make up childhood.
I’ve put together a complete session preparation guide for my clients that I send before every session. It includes information about clothes, hair/makeup, and other useful tips to help eliminate stress from your experience.
Yes, if you're a client I have tons of gorgeous maternity gowns for you to choose from!
