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?
Vodka (kidding). I start by choosing a location with privacy because *most* people don't like an audience during their session. We talk about the kids, family, life, whatever! I encourage hugs, snuggles and playing instead of sitting still. We just have a lot of fun!
Where will our session take place?
I am drawn to locations with beautiful sunset light so I am happy to share my favorite places to shoot. If you see a place you love on my website, let me know. If you have a place in mind, that's cool too!
What time of day will our session take place?
All of my outdoor sessions take place at "golden hour" for that beautiful, sun soaked light. Nothing compares to that time of day so that's when I shoot! The actual time varies throughout the year but it is about 60 minutes before sunset.
How long will our session be?
Typical sessions are approximately 60 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! 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.
