nice to meet you
I love the limitless potential of photography. I shoot outdoor (natural light) and studio photography, and my number one goal is to make my clients’ visions come alive. From chiaroscuro (low key or dramatic) to light and airy (high key), I shoot to make my clients happy.
Here are some of my values and how I strive to uphold them:
I am committed to growth as a photographer. I believe excellence is a journey, not a destination. Pushing my technical and creative boundaries is something I do on the regular.
I don't see photography as just pictures. Photography is a vehicle for self-discovery, which leads to growth and transformation. It captures and celebrates your essence––that magical recipe that is YOU.
I love seeing the potential in the world around me. My creative process involves diving into who you are and how to portray you photographically. Together, we discover the perfect creative solution to meet your needs.
My clients are at the core of what I do. I want you to walk away with photos you will love to share. I include an intake form as an integral part of my process. Understanding your wants and needs is paramount.
Below is a general snapshot of my process.
After initial point of contact I'll book you in for a free consultation. This allows me to explain the finer details of my services and process, and to help me understand what you're looking for in a photographer.
Decided to book? Great! I'll send you a questionnaire that will help me make your photoshoot special. A non-refundable retainer is required at the time of booking. Remaining fees are collected no less than one day prior to the shoot.
After review of the questionnaire, I will send you a contract for signing. This contract summarizes the details of the shoot as understood through the intake process, including date/time, location, and editing style. The contract must be signed to hold the booking.
Depending on the package type chosen, you may require additional meetings. These will be booked after the contract has been signed and the retainer has been collected.
Photos are sent to you for proofing after initial edits have been made. At this point you can choose your final photos based on the package you chose. You will also have the opportunity to request additional photos, creative photoshop services, and retouching.
Total editing time for the photos generally takes between 2-4 weeks, but a more accurate estimate will be provided during our intake conversation and be written into the contract.
I live to make people feel their best. I believe every person is unique and beautiful, and my job is to help them see their beauty. Our society often sends the message that beauty is only external, ignoring that confidence, strength, and self-acceptance are part of the equation. It is our essence that is most important, and it radiates outward. That is what I aspire to capture as a photographer.
