For one thing, it's an experience. It's you and I making a connection, then working together to create images which authentically represent you or your family. It's not about studio backdrops, generic props or stiff poses. In fact it's nothing strictly planned. I work on-location, using only natural light. So you might say lifestyle portraiture is more like a choose-your-own-adventure book!
My main focus, obviously, is people. Kids are a ton of fun to work with because they are so unpredictable, but I also love photographing families, couples and unique individuals. I'm especially drawn to personalities who express themselves in atypical ways. Sometimes I don't even know exactly what that means until I see it, but I'm intrigued by those who don't necessarily follow trends or convention.
Does this sound like you? We should definitely talk.
MY MODUS OPERANDI
My intention is to build a strong portfolio of work, so I have NO sitting fee and NO products to sell. Instead I offer a time-for-digitals (TFD) exchange.
That doesn't mean I'll photograph just anyone. I want to work with imaginative people who appreciate photography. People who will bring as much energy and consideration to their session as I do. My time is limited, but I pour my heart into what I do and I ask the same of everyone who books with me.
In return you'll walk away with unique, hand-crafted images to put in your albums or hang on your walls. Portraits you can share with friends and pass down to your children. And perhaps more importantly, the memory of an experience you truly enjoyed, which you can treasure for a long time to come.
