Real. Honest. Raw. I aim to create sessions that take place in an interesting environment that engage you and your loved ones. The goal is that you enjoy the activity we choose and I capture the true emotions and the connections. I snap your natural interactions and reactions. Capture the perfect moments, memories and miracles in an imperfect world.
When you buy prints from me you aren't just paying for the ink and paper but for the art on the paper. You and your memories are the main subject! When you hire me I create a unique experience and session catered directly to you. Each piece is one of a kind, made just for you. I spend many hours coming up with new ideas, creating a fun adventure for you, helping you pick out your outfits, culling and retouching and making sure every detail is perfect. I and my labs have been well trained to produce the highest quality art, just for you.
When you print with a non-professional printer, I cannot guarantee lasting, high quality. By printing with me you ensure that your colours are correct, the pieces are perfect and last a life time. You get the peace of mind, knowing that your investment will last and you don't have to do any extra work to get amazing memories displayed in your home.
I usually use natural light, meaning there isn't a huge production and everything stays raw and real. Often when we design your shoot together, we find an activity, like going for ice cream, skating or for a hike, or something that you all enjoy doing together. I try to inspire you to do something you haven't done in a while, so you get to go on adventure and have a special day. During the session we have fun! You just spend time with your loved ones and I capture you in your life. Sometime we might even just spend time in your home and I capture a day in the life of you. Each session is uniquely designed to fit you and what you love to do together.
My editing style is very natural and organic. I don't over sharpen or overly photoshop my images, generally. I only clean up the images so there are no elements that distract from your story. I retouch skin from blemishes and anything that you wouldn't have 2 weeks from now. If there is anything specific you want fixed I am more than happy to adjust it. My main concept if that our lives are not perfect or fake so your images should reflect the real you. Sometimes I'll do something different and creative but I will do that only to a few images so you can choose if you like it and if not you are not required to buy them.
I completely understand that kids are not always patient and need to run free. I am a former nanny of 6 kids so I know all about the ups and downs a child can have in a 30 minute time period, let alone in a day. I have had A LOT of experience working with kids. The nice thing about my sessions is that they are designed with the whole family in mind, we make the session fun and make a way for the kids to get their energy out! I let kids be kids. I do very little posed images and just capture real and organic moments between you and your children. And if worst comes to worst and you really do not like the results because of a over fussy child we can redo the shoot. I want you to LOVE the final images, that is my promise.
Yes! I want everyone to be able to get their special memories captured. I offer customized payment plans (up to 6 months) for any clients who spend more than $350 at the ordering session.

All specific print and collection pricing will be discussed in your initial phone consult. If you are interested in working with me fill out my contact form. I will call you and we can chat about what you have in mind, what I offer and how much you can expect to invest.
