Spontaneity. That’s what I look for when photographing families and portraits.
If your kid is crying, or sticks his or her finger up the nose, I am delighted.
If there is a giggle fit over some tickles, I’m all over that.
I like action and movement in my photos.
I want to see emotion and love.
I prefer photos where people aren’t looking at the camera, but rather at their loved ones.
My favorite shots are always the “outtakes” because those are the most authentic.
Real life isn’t perfect. It’s messy hair and stained clothes because your baby threw up on you on the way to the photoshoot.
Let’s take photos of all that. I know you’re going to miss it in a few years.
Your photographer should be someone you feel comfortable with, because let’s face it, having your photo taken is awkward enough. I get it. So, let’s cut down on the awkward a little.
Here are a few things that will let you get to know me a little better:
- My hubby and I went to high school together and have known each other since we were 15. I’m lucky that I found the perfect person to put up with my crazy.
- Our cat Zoe is quite insane. She’s almost 17 years old, but acts like a kitten. She also clearly says “hello?” if she can’t find us.
- I adore Instagram. Social media for photos? Yes, please. Get to know more about me via my personal account, as well as my professional account.
- I could live on coffee, tea, tacos, and ice cream. Probably not for long because that’s a horrible diet, but I would die happy.
- I am an extreme night owl.
- I always have a book with me. I was an English major in college, if that explains anything.
- There is little I love more in this world than a good pair of comfy pajamas.
- Marilyn Manson once spit his beer on me when I was photographing him. Moral of the story? Photography isn’t as glamorous as you would think.
