What is your specialty?
I love natural light photography, especially outdoor sunset sessions. I love capturing the connections that exist between families.
What is your style?
Easy, breezy! I aim to capture natural expressions in a relaxed setting. No stuffy portraits allowed.
How do you get people to relax at their session?
I start by choosing a location with privacy because most people don't like an audience during their session. I talk to people and ask them about themselves and their families. I encourage hugs, snuggles and playing instead of sitting still. I try to keep things fun!
Where will our session take place?
Your session will be held at a location of your choosing or I am happy to offer suggestions. Your home, a favorite park, a local historic area~ the possibilities are endless! I am drawn to locations with beautiful sunset light.
What time of day will our session take place?
Almost all of my outdoor sessions take place at "golden hour" for that beautiful, nothing compares to it, sun soaked light. The actual time varies throughout the year but it is about 90 minutes before sunset.
How long will our session be?
Typical family sessions are approximately 60-90 minutes and senior sessions are two hours. My goal is for every person I work with to have fun, enjoy the session and love the final results so no session will be ever be rushed.
How should we prepare for our session?
After booking your session I will send you a prep guide with lots of great info and suggestions for what to wear. If you have any special ideas for the session please let me know!
What if my baby cries or child doesn't cooperate?
Right from the start I let parents know not to worry! From experience, most kids warm up to me quite soon and busy kids will eventually calm down. I engage kids through talking and being silly and I will put down my camera if they need a break. I have photographed kids of all ages and have plenty of practice focusing distracted toddlers and calming fussy babies.
What happens after the session?
After providing you with a sneak peek of your images online, your images will be delivered via digital download in a custom, shareable gallery within two weeks of your session.
Do you offer prints and canvases?
Yes! You may order professional prints and canvases directly from your gallery but you are not obligated to do so.
