Examples of my portrait photography to give you an idea of my shooting style and the types of images I can capture for you
I try to capture how you are as a family; how you interact and feel about each other. I think those are the types of pictures you're going to look back on and appreciate more, and I attempt to give you a "snapshot in time" that will always bring back fond memories.
I aim more to show the intimacy and love between two people instead of just a portrait. I want to capture the "moment" forever, and give you that picture you will cherish for a long time to come, not just shove in a photo album and forget about. Whether it's to celebrate an engagement, a special time in your lives, or just because you want to express your love in a medium you can share with others, I always feel happy (and honored) to be chosen to capture and preserve a moment in time for you.
Like a wedding or graduation, a pregnancy marks a momentous change in your life. It is a brief moment in time that all too often goes unrecorded. I think that pregnant women are beautiful. Having been pregnant twice, I know that "we" don't always feel the most beautiful, and my goal is to capture you at your best and leave you with photographs that you will cherish. Maternity photographs are often the first entry into a baby book, and as each pregnancy is unique, the photographs will be as well. Capturing a woman's special beauty while they are pregnant is something I consider an honor and a privilege - in fact, being able to be a part of the joy and eager expectation associated with your pregnancy is something that I love.
A wedding day resides in fleeting events, unfolding (mostly) without direction. My goal with weddings is to discover how the story of a wedding day can be captured in a true, natural way as moments happen. Just like with my engagement and couples photography, I aim more to show the intimacy and love between two people instead of just a portrait. As with all of my photography, your photos will reflect who you are as a couple, rather than being stiff and formal. I want to insure that there will be time for intimate bride and groom sessions, as well as group portraits. With my wedding photography, I want to take pictures of your family in a casual, relaxed atmosphere (as I do for all of my photos). This lends itself to a much more relaxed environment, which is less stressful and takes up far less time on such an important day. It will also give you photos you will treasure for a lifetime.
I don't limit myself to just capturing people, but love to take pictures of wildlife and nature as well. I am a "hippie" at heart, and while I am not fond of bugs, I do love the outdoors! I always aim to take the type of photos that draw you in and tell a story at a glance.
