WHAT TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU?
My work has been described as authentic, emotive, and joyful. I am attracted to genuine connection. As an empath, I feed off of those things and they somehow make their way through my lens. As mush as I see photography as art, I also want you to have photos that bring comfort to your home. Conversational pieces that allow you, your friends and loved ones to reminisce. Hopefully I can grab a few photos that can make it to a future wedding slideshow. These photographs will be an investment into your family history. I don’t try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I am not after that "one" shot with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Sure, I may get some with everyone looking and smiling, but I promise if I do, it will be because it happened naturally, not because it was forced.
WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?
I have several beautiful go to spots in Howard County for your family or we can simply photograph in the comfort of your own home.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Be comfortable, be yourself. My children have their own sense of style. My youngest son loves to wear mismatched striped socks while my oldest is likes to look “handsome” as he calls it. If he cared enough to go shopping with me, he would probably buy suspenders, slacks and penny loafers. Meh, that’s who they are and that’s who I want represented in our family photos. So whatever shows your family in it’s most authentic self, wear it. I can send you to some great Pinterest boards to help guide you, if you like.
WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS AFTER THE SHOOT?
Photographs grow in value over time and become family treasures. I know the importance of archiving and saving digital images. I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive the selected high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. You will receive your images in both color and black and white. You will also have the option to buy a predesigned album, additional prints and boutique products.
WHEN, HOW AND WHERE CAN I ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND PRODUCTS?
Within four weeks of your shoot, you will receive a link to a private online gallery, we can discuss what you’d like then.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES GO IN THE GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT?
I carefully go through each image from your session and select the best images. I look for images that represent me as an artists and your family.
DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS?
No; mini-sessions are not conducive to my style. I want each family to have time to relax and be themselves.
