I often photograph professional models for their portfolios and commercial pursuits. I also photograph people who want professional-quality, creative photos to capture an important occasion or to celebrate “who we are right now” – especially important to families because children grow up so fast! So – know exactly what you want? Let me know how you like to be photographed and we’ll get to work. New to the whole idea or a little nervous? I can provide guidance on wardrobe, makeup, locations, and poses – as much or as little as you like.
The best family photos freeze a unique moment – a special look on a daughter’s face that reminds everyone of her grandmother; a father’s genuine, head-thrown-back laugh beneath a pile-up of kids and a football; a mother’s bemused smile as she’s presented with a treasured toad by a grinning son. These are the pictures we return to, again and again, because they remind us exactly who we were and what we were feeling in that moment. They make us smile or tear up or laugh, every time.
There’s something powerful about a glamorous photograph of yourself – about a photo meant to tell a particular, forward story. My clients tell me theirs make them feel wild, brave, strong, captivating…
I design my photo shoots to be fun and comfortable, so each client feels that they can show the camera their true self.
