life is better together
Welcome to my "life" section! I call this Life and not Families or Couples or Portraits because it's real life and the people we are doing it with. This can be two people, or ten, a couple, a family, or even a group of friends. Who makes up your family? If you want to celebrate a new relationship, an anniversary, a beautiful baby bump, a new arrival, a milestone, a new season of life, a birthday, or just because life is beautiful, I'm here for that. I want to celebrate you - and yours - right now, at this perfect moment. Let's stop time for a second, together, so that we can remember it, always.
My approach is organic, natural, candid, real-life moments of love and awe and connection. I always provide a few "camera aware" classic-style portraits (looking at the camera) for my clients, but largely I will give you starting poses and then prompt you with fun, sentimental, or sweet actions to help you bring out the real you - not the say-cheese you.
I believe in the raw beauty of everyday life. My style is a cross between photo-journalistic and fine art. That's a fancy way of saying I lean towards camera-unaware moments that are candid, real, and authentic (photo-journalistic), and also full of intention, story, and depth (fine art). My editing is contemporary and film-inspired. It can be in your home - where you do life - or it can be in an outdoor location that means a lot to you. Because I believe in raw beauty, I do not photoshop away minor flaws or take off ten pounds. However, if you have body image issues (who doesn't?) be honest when I ask beforehand and I can work around them!
