What to Expect
My idea of a perfect picture is one that captures the personality of my subject. I strive to document real moments that happen everyday but are almost never caught on “film”. I am often told by my clients that I captured the emotion of the moment.
So I will be asking you to look at each other, hold hands, hug, kiss, share jokes and take walks. I will most likely not ask you to look at the camera. I also try to keep a light and relaxed atmosphere to maintain a level of comfort for everyone. If we need to take a break, we take a break.
Each session is customized, so prior to your session, you will fill out a questionnaire that will help me get to know you and your family a little better. Then we will talk about what it is that you are looking to get out of the session. What photos are most important to you? Where and how would you like to display the pictures? Is there a particular location you would like to use? I want this to be a great experience for the whole family, and most importantly, I want you to proudly display these images in your home.
As far as the location for the shoot, I prefer to photograph outdoors in natural light. We will identify the perfect location for your session that will provide the perfect backdrop for you and your family - be it a farm, park, beach, urban, etc.
