What to Expect
What is "lifestyle" photography?
A session with me isn't ever stiff, forced, or stressful. It's a special time for you to genuinely enjoy and connect with those you love. I want to truly know your family and capture a well-dressed version of your every-day! We will laugh, play, and explore together. My direction will lead you into natural fun, interaction, and joy...my images are mostly unposed and will showcase personality and connections above all.
You never need to worry about perfect behavior or posing from your kids (or your partner!)...just be with them. Love them just as they are. Let me be a fly on the wall while you giggle, snuggle, and cherish.
Real emotions and even chaos are all part of the day and can make gorgeous images...so relax, and leave the work to me! My goal is to capture the precious grins and details AND to create images that will help you remember what you feel in this season of your love.
I largely shoot outdoors, using a variety of locations around our fabulous city, but if you want to capitalize on comfort and showing me what's unique about you, in-home sessions can also be a GREAT option.
What about Covid-19?
As a past healthcare provider and a mama of a child with chronic health conditions, you can rest assured that safety is my number one priority for as long as we are living in a pandemic. My sessions will follow public health guidelines and I will carefully watch trends as I make decisions about my business. I will follow masking/hygiene recommendations and any session can be done socially distant and contactless if you desire. Please let me know if you have special concerns in this area and we can discuss additional needs.
