Style and Approach

The studio name will tell you pretty much everything you need to know! I photograph energy, love, and the chaotic beauty of growing families.

Your session experience starts with a conversation about your family dynamics. It’s so important that there are elements in your images that are familiar to and cherished by you, whether it be in the season we choose, the location, or activity. For more traditional poses, families are placed in a spot where we can capture the best light, then place each family member where everyone looks fantastic, and finally encourage a moment within that. It is in those little moments, in the poses and pools of light that my favorite images are made.

While we are shooting my main goal is to keep the kids engaged, but I am also thinking about how quick the sun is setting, environmental factors of where we are, light, image variety in your gallery, and getting images that visually work when hung as a group or separately. I have 14 years as a professional portrait photographer and use that experience throughout the session to know when to devote time to each one of the aspects of the session that are important to you, when to move on to a new location, switch gears and try something different, follow the lead of the kids, and when to take control and re-focus. Most importantly I know how to create a gallery of images you will swoon over.
