Style & Philosophy
My goal is to be welcomed into your moments, your world and your lives, in order to create photographs that represent the real you. I strive to capture the emotions, interactions and energy shared between individuals, so that when you look at your images you feel as if they are not only pictures, but are impressions of the feelings and moments you share together.
I recently described my style to a colleague as “photogenic photojournalism,” and I believe that describes my style well. I love being a fly on the wall, there to capture your moments without a lot of intrusion. Yet I will also go out of my way to find the most flattering light and angles, and I will move your dress to a beautiful location, pull a hair out of your face, or adjust a place setting so that I can capture the details of your day in the most beautiful way possible.
Life is fleeting. It is made up of moments and memories that are filled with emotion.
Many define life through the most significant moments. An “I do,” a first dance, a cry when entering the world, a first step.
Yet, life is so much more than that. It is made up of smaller moments that happen in an instant, but remain in your heart for a lifetime. A laugh. A stolen glance. An embrace.
It is amazing what photography can do; it can take a simple moment and turn it into a lasting memory.
That is where I come in. I get to have the unbelievable privilege of being welcomed into your moments, so that you have a record of them to cherish and reflect on for a lifetime.
My favorite title is one that my dear friend gave me. She calls me their “family photographer.”
It is my goal to become your “family photographer” as well, capturing all of your moments from the “I dos,” to expectant bellies, on to the arrival of new little fingers and toes, then special family moments for years to come.
I look forward to getting to know you and the loved ones in your life, and creating a relationship in which you can also look to me as “Your Family Photographer.”
