Hello! Thanks for stopping by and I’m glad you are interested in my work!
I specialize in portrait photography, including senior portraits. I also photograph limited weddings and commercial work. I’ve worked with many different subjects and styles since I began shooting, and I have found that nothing satisfies me more than a moody, deep, creative portrait that reflects the personality of the subject.
I look forward to getting to know you and creating an epic portrait together that conveys your passions, your dreams, and who you are. First, we’ll talk a bit over the phone, email, or over coffee to get to know one another a bit and come up with a personalized shoot concept that is tailor-fit to you.
Next, we’ll pick a shoot date and location so you can get your hair/makeup artist booked if you choose to hire one, which I highly recommend. Between this point and your shoot date, we’ll be emailing back and forth about wardrobe and hair/makeup looks to nail down all the little details.
Finally, we’ll shoot! Most portrait shoots take about 2-3 hours, not including the time you’ll need beforehand to work with the hair and makeup artist you’ve booked. More involved concepts might take a little longer. You should have your hair and makeup done before you arrive on-location unless we agree to doing it there.
After the shoot, we’ll sit down together and select your best images for retouching and printing. Your prints and/or digital files will be ready within a week or two of your shoot in most cases. Wedding prints and albums take a bit longer.
Pricing is based on your session fee and retouching/printing fees. I keep pricing simple with no surprises. I’m not the least expensive photographer out there, but I do my very best to make sure that my work is the best value for your investment.
I know that having your portrait done is probably not your idea of a ‘fun’ day. I know that it feels a bit scary in front of the camera – I’ve been there too. But try not to worry! With a great concept to explore, your hair and makeup looking amazing, you will feel like a million bucks and have a blast on shoot day! You will be a bit nervous at first, but that will pass quickly and you'll have a lot of fun with it. It's more than worth it to create a piece art that you and your family and friends will cherish forever. Perhaps most importantly, a great portrait can help you see yourself in a whole new way, and that effect lasts forever, too.
