What kind of photographer are you?
I am a lifestyle, natural light photographer. I love movement, interaction and genuine emotion. My favorite images are real, romantic, artistic and full of life. I am not after the "perfect picture", but rather a series of images that tell the story of your family.
When and Where will my session be held?
This can go a lot of different ways. I have a couple of favorite spots, but if there is somewhere that is important to you and your family, LETS GO THERE! I like to shoot an hour or so before sunset for the yummy golden light, or mid afternoon for indoor shoots. Natural lighting is mega important, but not as important as little ones nap times, dinner times, etc. I want to hear your ideas and find a time that is best for your family! Newborn portraits, however, will always be held in the comfort of your own home.
How should I prepare my kids for picture taking?
This is such an important question! I encourage parents to make it as fun and relaxed as possible. It will just be a wonderful time to play and be together as a family. I do not expect your kids to "behave" or "look at the camera and smile". I will get your kids to do what I need, so the pressure is off you! I shoot fast (my kids have trained me well) so, my sessions usually only last 45 minutes to an hour. Afterwards, I suggest going to get ice cream or a sno-cone and make it a fun family event!
What kind of equipment do you use?
I love Nikon and shoot with a Nikon D750. I mainly use my Sigma 50mm lens, but also have a 35mm.
How long until I get my pictures back?
Turn around on a full gallery is usually 2-3 weeks. But, I promise as soon as I have it finished I will send it over!
What should I wear?
I want everyone in something comfortable that makes them feel good! I always strive to capture a feeling and not a look, so I would suggest not wearing anything that could be distracting (bright patterns and such) But, as a general rule for families: Coordinate, don't match.
Will I get my digital photos after the shoot?
Yes! I will send a professional online gallery for you to download images and keep forever!
How do I book with you?
