Real life is worth capturing, and planning makes all the difference. I take great care in choosing the right locations, working with clients and using my skills in lighting and composition to ensure every session is unique. We have sessions available Monday through Saturday, on location or at our studio. Outdoor sessions are scheduled around lighting and sunset times.
Portrait sessions are held at the studio, an outdoor location or your home usually taking around 1 hour. The best time to plan your outdoor session is early morning or late afternoon – this way we take advantage of the beautiful light and avoid the mid afternoon heat. When calling to schedule your appointment, planning is very important in creating portraits that best suite your personality. I am a big fan of the great outdoors, lush green fields, urban settings and colorful backdrops for my sessions. I am always up for a fun new location or can offer suggestions to best suite your needs. Making sure each and every session is creative and best reflects your personality is very important to me.
