“Why should I hire a photographer when I can just take photos on my phone?”

When you’re stopping an authentic moment to whip out your phone to take a photo, you’re not 100% present. Hiring a photographer allows you to be an active participant in your own memories. Go laugh and smile and be silly. Put your phone down. Hold your partner or your babies, and let me capture it all for you.

You’re not going to get the same quality photos or experience as you’d get when having a professional involved. I work with professional equipment and editing software to produce gorgeous, high-quality images that will last a lifetime and beyond. I know my gear well and am confident in my abilities to shoot photos anywhere, any time of anyone.

I am knowledgeable when it comes to lighting, locations, wardrobe and posing. We’ll make sure every detail is accounted for and work together to make your session personal and customized to you. I want you to be blown away when you see the final product.  

The harsh truth is, memories fade. But looking at photos helps to relive that moment in time. That moment is infinite. Your memories are worth the investment. For me, photography is so much more than taking a pretty picture. It's about telling a story, your story.

scrap everything you think you know about photoshoots:

When we think of taking pictures, we immediately think of looking into the camera and saying cheese, right? Or you may even be thinking of the “Awkward Family Photos” posing. Wrong!

It is so important to me to keep things fun and interactive. You’ll be running around like a Bay Watch beach babe. You’ll be dancing like a maniac in the middle of a field. You’ll be telling each other funny jokes and laughing hysterically. We are constantly moving. It’s all about creating real, authentic moments- with direction from me, of course. I’ll guide you through everything you need to do. These are your memories. And it's my job to preserve them, but also help create them.

kind words:

My dad

World's greatest photographer!
