The Experience

A photo session is like a fingerprint - no two are alike. This is why I enjoy shooting so much. I never know what to expect and I'm always surprised. Lighting, setting, weather, the varying personalities of subjects and the way individual characters play off of one another... these are just a few variables that make each session so unique and so much fun!


Some folks prefer a great deal of direction, while others would rather just "be" while I capture their character candidly. Regardless of your style, my aim is to make you feel comfortable and to portray the essence of who you are. Even if you feel a little unnatural in front of the camera at first, I'll help you loosen up and have a good time. Remember, the more relaxed and natural you act, the better your photographs will be. Play, talk, laugh, be silly and spontaneous. The moments when you forget I'm there all together are the moments I'll capture who you really are, free of inhibition.

When do photo sessions typically take place?

All sessions take place Monday thru Thursday. This enables me to leave my weekends open for shooting weddings, doing post-processing work, and sneaking in some time with my family.

Outdoor sessions are always scheduled to begin roughly one to two hours before sunset in order that we may catch the most flattering and interesting light.

If you're scheduling an indoor session, it's best to book a morning or afternoon time slot, as that's when the ambient light is brightest and most dynamic.

Location, Location, Location

Where would you like your session to take place? I always recommend choosing a location that best highlights your character. This place should help reflect the energy and look you want captured in your photos; it should also be a place where you know you'll be able to relax and feel yourself.

If you're at a loss for a location idea, don't worry; I'm here to guide you through that selection process and I'm also happy to offer ideas until we hit upon the location that feels just perfect for you!
