Hey you! Thanks for stopping by

So. What do I with this camera of mine?

I document a little snippet of your life.

The way it is right now.

These moments are so fleeting that it's absolutely essential to capture them in photos.

Nowadays we often hear about this "storytelling" and "lifestyle" photography... but what is it?

I find it to be a mix of portraiture and documentary. It's combining the fly on the wall approach but also using prompts and feedback to create an atmosphere where the subjects can relax and be themselves,

It's not "look at the camera and say cheese"

It's not in a studio, with flashes and props. 

It's in your home, surronded by your belongings that will mean something to you when you look back at the images.

It's outside, at the beach, in the mountains, in a field of sunflowers... wherever you feel most at home.

Does that sound like fun? Trust me, it is! 

How long does a session normally last?

I usually shoot for at least an hour because I find that it takes a little bit of time to get away from the stiff "I don't know what to do in front of the camera" vibe we all have (trust me, I'm the worst in front of a camera!) If you're thinking, what can you take pictures of for an hour, don't worry! Between walking, chatting, and chasing after kids and husbands... time flys. When there are multiple locations and outfit changes, two hours is the average duration of a session. 

What do I wear? 

Wear whatever you feel good in! I do ask that you avoid loud prints, neon colors, and graphic T shirts because they can be quite distracting and we don't want to draw attention away from what matters which is YOU and your family/significant other. 

 What equipment do you use?

I use a Nikon full frame DLSR camera with a combination of Nikon and Sigma prime lenses.

I rely soley on natural light in order to achieve a natural look in my portraits

What happens if there's bad weather?

Obviously if it's downpouring or there's a blizzard we will reschedule the shoot, but don't think that some clouds or wind will ruin the day! The best photos often come when it isn't sunny at all. 

How many images are delivered?

I don't specify a set amount because it varies from shoot to shoot, but my galleries contain at least 30 images for an hour session.

How will I receive my photos?

I deliver all images through an easy to use web gallery where you will be able to download both the high resolution (for printing purposes) and web resolution (for social media) versions. You will also be able to share your gallery with your friends and family via a link. 

Do you offer prints and albums?

Nothing makes me happier than seeing photos printed out, so the answer is an astounding YES!

I customize according to your needs but I've included a base package in my pricing below

When will I receive my photos?

The digital files are delivered within 1-2 weeks from the shoot. Albums and prints may take up to a month
