About Your Sessions

I specialize in portrait photography for people in all stages of life. From the newly-engaged couple to the big extended family (grandparents, grandchildren, and all), I'd be honored to capture beautiful moments that you'll be able to cherish for the rest of your life. While most of my photography work tend to be lifestyle portrait or newborn/infant sessions, I do take on occasional customized photography requests. This includes, but is not limited to, headshots, food photography, proposals, live births, and special events. Please contact me if there's something you have in mind. I'd love to tell your story through photography!

Lifestyle Photography Sessions

What Do These Sessions Look Like?

This is a broad category that could include seniors, expectant parents, engaged couples, and families. Lifestyle photography sessions are, by definition, candid and "unposed". By candid, I mean that I will show up where you are, and photograph you doing you! And I say "unposed" because, really, all photographers provide at least some form of guidance for posing ;) I will ensure, however, that the poses are natural and easy; I will observe how you carry yourself and give directions based on what seems natural for You. We can do sessions at your home or at another location of your choice. Pick somewhere you'll be comfortable! If you'd like, I can even provide styling/wardrobe guidance.

Sessions can be simple at-home sessions. You could chill, snuggle with your loved ones, or just sit around and chat. You could cook a special meal, play a game together, or read a book to your kids. You do You, and I will photograph You. Sessions can be a fun outing. You could explore downtown, go to the zoo, or meet me at a playground. Again, you do You, and I will photograph You.

Newborn / Infant

Photography Sessions

What Do These Sessions Look Like?

Newborn photography sessions are also, by nature, lifestyle photography sessions (see the definition of lifestyle photography in the previous column). Newborns and infants get their own category because their needs are different from older human beings. At newborn sessions, I follow the baby's cues. If your baby is hungry, we will stop for him/her to eat. If your baby is happy and awake, we will chug along until he/she tells us otherwise. These sessions are super chill! You will spend most of your time cuddling and kissing your little one; I will stand by and capture all that sweetness. And whenever your baby allows me to, I will take solo pictures of your sweet little one! I do little to no posing at newborn/infant sessions. Babies are lucky that even their awkward startles and stares are absolutely adorable! They don't need any help with posing ;)

Newborn/infant sessions are done in the hospital or at your home, unless you prefer otherwise. Sessions can be done as soon as your babes are born, or as "late" as when they are several months old (up to 3 months old)!
