About the Photo Session
RELAXED - EASY - FUN!
Your photo session will be an enjoyable and fun experience - really! This will not be a stressful studio session where you are forcing a smile. Here you can be yourself, interacting with your loved ones on your terms. Yes, I will lightly pose and guide you at times. But the best photographs are usually the ones where you are at ease and are comfortable having fun with your family. You deserve to relax and have a wonderful time with the ones you love the most. I encourage kids to run, play, and be free in an unrestricted atmosphere. Movement leads to connection which leads to images that reflect your true beauty. I try to capture how you feel, not just how you look. So let's kick back and have a great time!
The session can occur in a place that is special to you. This is often in a park, backyard, in your home, or a favorite trail. It can also tie into another activity or event that is important to you. I can provide location suggestions and will work with you to find a good spot. Most sessions are about 60-90 minutes, and take place earlier in the morning or late in the afternoon. These times of day maximize the soft, golden light that is spectacular. I use natural light most of the time, but will use additional lighting if needed to improve the image.
This meaningful time in your life is begging to be documented! Some of your favorite moments now will soon be memories. Perhaps even things that drive you crazy about your loved ones now will be missed down the road. Choose to remember them forever. Click here to learn more about me.
