Weddings

Just like engagement portraits, wedding photography has come a long way. In my parent’s day, a couple would drop by the studio or have a photographer come to their wedding location to have a few traditional wedding portraits taken in their attire. A photographer could book multiple weddings in one day. Now, when a photographer books a wedding, that photographer is usually shadowing the couple and documenting every detail and moment throughout the entire day. Photojournalism has definitely married wedding photography and this is their “baby.” It’s both wonderful and intense, and highly personalized. And because of this, whether you hire me from the moment you start to have your hair and make up done, or just hiring me for a specialized wedding portrait session, hiring someone that understands the both of you, someone you can trust, laugh with, and enjoy is paramount.

Senior Portraits

A tradition that has gone on for decades. Senior portraits are quite possibly the last time you get to set up a portrait session for your children before they move out of your house and begin a life of their own. Hiring a professional who can really catch their personalities and their beautiful features is worth the investment. Or, at least, photographic reminder to your children that you paid for their braces. And may they never forget it. 3964 2 3964 1 3964 1 3964 0 3964 1 3964 0 3964 0 3964 1 3964 1 3964 0 3964 1 3964 0 3964 0 3964 0 3964 1 3964 1 3964 1 3964 0 3964 0 3964 1 3964 0 3964 0 3964 0 3964 1

Newborns/Babies

We all say it. One day they are born, the next thing you know they are diving face first into their first birthday cake. Time goes so fast. Especially those first couple of weeks. The belly button stub, wrinkly skin, peach fuzz, and chicken legs turn into chubby rolls before we know it. And in the haze of motherhood, it can seem as if we don’t always get the opportunity to take it all in. Photographing everything ABOUT your newborn and/or baby during the first year is a wonderful way to do that. And when you have a moment to yourself after their first birthday party, you can look back and see just how much your peanut has grown. 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0 3993 0

Maternity

Life is full of important seasons, and pregnancy is definitely one of the most life altering ones. 40 weeks of growing a baby in your womb changes your body in many ways. The best part is, every pregnancy is different. Every belly is different. Either way, the beauty and mystery of pregnancy is one of the best things to photograph for yourself, and for your children. It is basically their first portrait. Maternity photography can take on a variety of styles. Cute outfits in scenic locations with your dad-to-be, or partially clothed (to your comfort level) and artistic in the comforts of your home. I promise that once baby is born, it is hard not to look back at that big round belly and miss it. Maybe that’s why we mothers often do it again. 4534 1 4534 2 4534 1 4534 2 4534 1 4534 1 4534 0 4534 0 4534 0 4534 0 4530 0 4534 1 4534 1 4534 1 4534 1 4534 0 4534 0 4534 0 4534 2 4534 1 4534 1 4534 0 4534 0 4534 0 4534 2 4534 2 4534 1 4534 1 4534 0 4534 0 4534 0 4534 0 4534 […]

Family

Family portraits are a way to convince the world (and yourself), just how awesome your family really is. Especially when your kids are not fighting over the bathroom. Whether you are in need of just one great posed portrait to give to grandma to hang over her fireplace, or want more of a photojournalistic story to put into a coffee table book, I can help remind you how good of a job you are really doing. And yes, your family genetic code is stellar!

Birth

I know what you may be thinking…”WHAT???” It’s true, more and more parents are opting to have the birth of their babies photographed. And it just so happens that this is one of my favorite things to photograph. This is because there is nothing more pivotal than going from a couple to a family, in such a short amount of time. In an instant. It is even more impressive than running a marathon. And I love that moment after baby is born and the look of elation, joy, relief, and tears in the faces of mom and dad. I can silently and unobtrusively photograph from the beginning stages of labor all the way through, to just photographing the hours after the birth when baby gets measured, weighed, and family gets to bond and cuddle. Together, you can give me an idea of what kinds of things you would like me to include to tell the story of your baby’s birth. Having had both my births photographed, I was ready to see them ASAP in order to marvel at my accomplishment. I saw another birth photographer explain it as “let your husband hold your hand, not the camera,” and that is […]

Several images that either need an honorable mention, their own category, or are just so great they should be revisited again.  (More to come) 4294 1

Children

Toddlers, preschoolers, adolescents, preteens. Yup. They just keep growing. Best to take advantage of photographing them while they still let you pick out their clothes.

Personal Work

When I am not busy photographing the lives of my clients, I do try to find the time to photograph my own family and interests. I try really hard to make sure my kids and family don’t fall into the shoemaker’s kids category. I like to push the envelope a little bit, and while I do have classic portraits of my children, I prefer to photograph things outside of the norm. A little bit of story telling, a little avant garde, lots of humor or emotion of any kind. I just need more wall space to hang it all.  (More to come.) 3486 0
