I started my career in photography as a wedding photographer. I love weddings. Well, I love the kind of weddings where two people in love are ready to throw caution to the wind make a commitment and celebrate their love. Not so much the kind where someone cries over napkin rings… My ideal wedding clients are the type of people who care more about the marriage than the stationary. They want photographs that represent the people they are, their relationship, the celebration of their love, and the way that they felt on their wedding day. I’ll photograph the details and make beautiful portraits for you, but what I really love are the moments.
Just like a wedding, graduating high school is one of the most pivotal moments in a person’s life. It’s the culmination of childhood, a celebration of accomplishments & friendships, and the first steps into adulthood. There are very few moments in a person’s life when they stand at the cusp of beginnings and endings in so many different ways. It’s important to document it, to remember the person that each senior is at this time in his or her life. The framework is set and they are on their way to become the person they are meant to me. Finding a photographer who can do that in an authentic manner is critical. Senior photography, for me, is all about the individual. I work to make sure that each story is told, and to make each one of them look and feel like the amazing person that they are today.
As both a location and studio photographer, I offer a level of service and variety that can be matched by very few in our area. My gorgeous natural light studio in Valley Junction offers a unique backdrop for portraits and also serves as a home base for us as we work together, both in creating images and also in helping you select your products and services. In addition to the studio, I also love to shoot outdoor portraits and events and incorporate natural settings into much of what I do. When choosing locations, I look for the purpose behind a setting. How can it enhance a portrait and why? As always, my portraits remain about the subjects themselves, therefore backdrop selection is critical in order to make sure that the story is properly told and the focus remains where it should, with you.
