WHAT TO EXPECT
relaxed. intimate. easy. real.
Oftentimes I hear that family photo day is the most stressful day of the year-
this is 100% not that experience.
I curate each session to be everything and anything that feels like you
and nothing that doesn't.
Just think of your idea of the perfect day.
(only I'm there scurrying around with a camera in hand laughing/crying with you.)
No need for matching outfits.
No stress over the weather.
No worrying about cooperation or tantrums.
It's all perfect. It's all art. You are more than enough completely as you are.
I'll show you.
how it works
Tell me about you by filling out this questionnaire.
I want to know anything you want to share.
Help me see the intimate details of your story so that I can create an experience exclusively for you.
I will read everything you shared and get back to you with a loose, relaxed, & flexible idea for how our time will be spent together.
we spend time together. relaxed & shockingly natural.
We spend time together and I take pictures.
We will move with whatever the present day hands us.
There will be no pressure.
And then in a few weeks or so, I will send you a gallery of what the experience felt like.
more than a photo session
A Coming Home
"You know, it’s not about screaming, it’s about whispering. When you scream everybody hears, but not everybody listens. When you whisper maybe not too many people can hear you, but it goes deeper.”
Do you deliver color or black & white images?
Both! I spend a lot of time editing your images- it's truly one of my favorite parts of the process. I make creative decisions like color treatment based on many factors but none more important than emotional intent. You can expect a mix of both.
How would you describe your photo editing style?
My editing treatment is an essential part of making your photographs feel aligned with my vision and the emotion from the session. Texture and imperfections i.e.- grain, glare, blur, gritty contrast, etc are an important part of how I communicate that.
Photographic Artist? Why not photographer?
I've always struggled with labels because I want it to feel more descriptive to how I work. Photographic Artist felt most "right" to me because it's really important for me to communicate that creative editing, digging deeper, and creating an experience is a significant part of my process. This could differ from a general photographer experience where purely documenting moments is more of the expectation.
