I love capturing the real, messy in-between moments that happen in everyday life. When you look back at photos, I want you to remember how you felt in that season.
You can always ask someone to photograph you looking straight at the camera. I’ll do that, for sure! But what I love even more than that are the little, intimate, hidden moments that have so much emotion in them. Whether it’s you having a fun interaction with your partner (I always make couples RUN!) or the look that you give your baby daughter, the pictures that I deliver to you will hopefully be treasured forever.
I love making people laugh in a real way, getting couples to get really cuddly, and making them run around like crazy to evoke lots of emotion. If you’re looking for someone who will ask you for a serious, moody face, that’s not me, and that’s okay!! My style is joyful and real, and I don’t even know how to be serious and moody!
Whether it’s to capture your 2 year old son, or you and your sweetheart, I promise to get the photos you’ll send to relatives and put on your holidays cards ALONG WITH the pictures of life as it is—messy, candid, and real. I love when nature and people go so seamlessly well together, and I also love being inside with people in their comfort zone. And I’ll give you a handbook/style guide I made to help you prepare for our session and know what to expect!
For weddings in particular, I’m there to photograph couples who are excited to get married and celebrate with their loved ones—the feelings & emotions are much more important than a big production. I’ll be there to pick you up coffee if you need it, pin up your veil (I forgot my veil at my wedding so I always remember it at other people’s!), put boutonnieres and corsages on, and be an extra friend—not just a random vendor—on your big day. I’ll make sure get all the candids, the important moments, the tears on your parents’ faces, and so much more as it happens.
I shoot with mostly digital but throw in 35mm color film every so often because I think there’s a dreamy timelessness that not even digital can emulate. My goal is for you to look back in 10 years and remember how you felt in that season of life instead of thinking, “wow those colors and that editing is so 2021!”
As a product manager for an awesome tech company by day, my goal is to satisfy and delight the customer. This translates into my role as a business owner and your photographer —I tell your story, not my own!
Let me freeze little moments in time for you to remember!
