"Time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life"
LIFESTYLE + DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY - this is where my heart is.
It all comes from a place of my own experience. What are my most treasured images? Well to be honest, I have very few posed images of my family that I consider favorites. My cherished images are the ones that capture life's moments and the photographs of us interacting with each other. I would much rather have images of my kids doing things that they truly love, interacting with each other, my family taking a walk and just spending time together. I know that these are the images that speak to me, stir my heart and help me to remember stages of life. I hope to create these kind of moments and memories for my clients.
I want to make the memory making photography experience enjoyable and uncomplicated for those I collaborate with. What we make together is yours forever…to hang, to print, to gift, to love. I offer a variety of options in terms of collections to best match your needs.

OFFERING A WEEKDAY MORNING SPECIAL FOR NEWBORNS...
You may ask...what's the difference between a lifestyle session and a documentary session?
During lifestyle sessions, we work together with the natural environment to create lightly posed images. I will survey your home or the environment in which we are shooting and may suggest that you move into spaces with certain types of light to create images. I will gently coach you on how to interact. There will be very few "okay everyone look at the camera" shots. The majority of the images will be made to help you remember where you were, who you were with, what you were doing and the connection and details that made the time together special.
At documentary sessions, I will not direct at all. Think of me as a fly on the wall....with my camera of course. I will be an observer, documenting whatever it is that your day brings. It will be me capturing you and your people doing what you do! Using the environment and available light to make creative, meaningful images of your time together is what I will strive to do. If the baby laughs, I click. If the baby cries, I click. If the kids play, I click. If the kids fight, I click. If your tween is on his cell phone, I click. If you, as a couple hug + kiss, I click. The goal is for you to be able to reconnect to a typical day/stage of your lives. This amazing session is for those who dig raw, real imagery.

Pre-Session - We chat about a date that works for you + me. You review and sign an electronic agreement and submit the session fee. Please note this fee goes toward the total cost of the session. This fee is non-refundable; however, if you need to change the date of your photography or film session we can most definitely work that out.We will communicate specifics about location and time or any other questions you may have.
Session - Your photography session or film session takes place!
Delivery - After the session, you will view your edits (please allow 2-3 weeks, but I will be sure to send some sneak previews). Once everything looks good in your online gallery and you have decided on your collection, I will deliver your photo/film via digital download.
