How I Work

No one should spend an important day being told where to go, what to do and when to smile (because that’s a bummer). It’s my job to capture the essence of your day, not distract you from it. My goal with each session is to help you feel comfortable, relaxed and most like yourself. When you work with me, I’ll spend some time getting to know you and what you’re all about before I’m ever behind a camera.

Here’s why you’ll love working with me:

I’m professional, but not pushy.

I know what I’m doing, but you are the most important part of the process. The more I know about you and what makes you tick, the better I can create an environment where you feel comfortable. When you work with me, expect to feel facilitated in your element, not pushed around.

I blend in so you can stand out.

You’re the star of your day, and I’m just there to capture it. My background in journalism taught me how to get the shot without getting in the way. I’ll make sure you can dedicate 100% of your energy to enjoying the moment instead of worrying about the camera hovering nearby.

I’m here to tell your story, not mine.

We all love beautiful photos, but it’s most important part of your photography is to capture the emotions and moments you want to remember. I take the time to understand the emotional undercurrent of your day so your photos tell a story that feels uniquely yours (and they’ll look great, too).

I take care of the details (So You Don't Have to).

You should be able to enjoy your day without getting side-tracked with a mental checklist. I prepare well ahead of time so that I can arrive ready to capture beautiful photos of you fully in your element without any unnecessary distractions.
