Joyful Genuine Illuminated
Light. The presence and absence of light is the foundation of photography. I love to capture it – the rays of sun streaming behind my subject, illuminating and framing those irreplaceable moments that I get to witness – the excitement of a one year old’s early steps, the joy of a family hug, the thrill of leaving high school and stepping out into the “real world.” I prefer the beauty of natural light. I almost exclusively take client photos at sunrise and sunset as that is when the light is the prettiest.
You can expect that 90% of the images you take with me will be candid and in the moment. I work much harder at capturing your families genuine smiles and laughter than I do at creating the perfect pose with perfect smiles. I vote FUN over stuffy, LAUGHTER over “say cheese” and COLORFUL and IMPACTFUL over fad editing. Who is with me?
My goal as a photographer is to give my clients personal art. The kind of image that is proudly displayed on their living room wall, because it’s a tangible reminder of a time in life that was joyful, chaotic, exhausting, fulfilling, wild, and a little messy – all of those emotions and realities that come with raising a family.
