I love representing life’s milestones with photos you and your family can cherish forever. My style is a blend of spontaneous, candid moments mixed with subtle posing, shining a light on the little things that make us happiest at the end of the day.
I document moments as they unfold, leaving room for personal emotions and interactions to tell your story, but also being there when you need a hand — whether the little one needs a snack break or someone is missing a boutonnière.
I like getting to know you on a personal level, so we can be completely comfortable around each other — which is when the magic happens. If you really want me to jump for joy, nothing inspires double rainbow-style happiness more than when we hit it off and laugh it up like old friends.
I enjoy loosening people up by being an awkward goofball, because like the wise Dr. Seuss once said:
“We’re all a little weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutual weirdness and call it love.”
For couples interested in wedding photography, as a newly-married Mrs., I understand how important it is to capture images that will remind you of all of the moments that flash by quickly once the excitement sets in. I’m there to document your day so you can show your grandkids how much fun everyone had while dancing to the Cupid Shuffle (to which they’ll respond, “What’s a Cupid Shuffle?”).
What's in my bag?
I use a Canon 5D Mark II, a handful of lenses (35mm and 50mm being my favorites), a flash unit, and backup gear. You’ll also find plenty of gum, granola bars, a water bottle, lip gloss, and an absurd amount of AA batteries in my bag.
Each shoot is special to me, because it’s all about documenting who you are. I capture images of couples, families, newborns, pets, and everyday people, creating tangible memories while surrounded by good people.
The beginning of a shoot is always the most fun for me, since it’s about loosening people up to become comfortable in front of the camera. After some initial conversation and subtle direction, I try to let people just be themselves. Once everyone has gotten into a rhythm and feels comfortable, it becomes all about highlighting the tiny moments that tell your story.
