Hey! You! Guess what? You don't have to dread a family session when you hire me as a photographer. It is actually RARE when I have a calm, cool, and collected family in front of my lens. And do you want to know something? I prefer the wild, untamed, and adventurous bunch who show their true colors where I am able to showcase what a family really represents! Hiring me and your family photographer will often feel like a breath of fresh air, and I guarantee you will be surprised how well I handle your kids and get them to listen to me. I love children, and for whatever reason, they love me, too. It is probably because they see me as someone on their level. Someone who will act silly and rambunctious with them, someone who allows them to run amok and let loose without reservations. Someone they trust. Let's ditch the JC Penney's portraits and create a memorable experience for your kids. They don't have to think we are taking boring pictures, they can just assume we are going to hang out and do what kids love most......being kids :) I truly embrace chaos, let me help ease your nerves and guide you all effortlessly to create timeless photos and an experience that will be remembered. I also promise to get solid group photos of everyone looking and hopefully smiling/cooperating ;)
Do you shoot destination weddings?
Yes! I am actually trying to shift my platform into smaller, more intimate-styled weddings, this includes elopements! I have an itch to travel and explore the world, but it seems most fitting with a camera in my hand. This is where I can capture natural beauty of landscapes with intense love as the subject. I want to show my couples that they don't have to live up to the standard norm of wedding planning. Truly, nothing is traditional anymore, marriage can happen ANYWHERE! I have photographed weddings, families, and couples over the years in Florida, Arizona, Oregon, California, and the list keeps growing! If you want to travel for photos, you can take your favorite photographer with you! It is best to have someone you trust and feel comfortable with by your side :) Let's chat more about your vision!
My kids have a very short attention span, do you offer different packages?
Yes! I host mini sessions seasonally (20 min) and they are perfect for kiddos! I love a good hour session with my families, especially if it takes a bit of time for your littles to warm up to me. Outside of minis, I offer two family packages: Family Light (25 min) and Family Timeless (1 hour). There is a questionnaire with each package so I can better understand your family's wants and needs. We can also extend any package to a lengthier time! I don't ever want anyone to feel rushed, however, I do so well interacting with children, they think I am one of them! That is the beauty of working with kids, I am able to show them safety, creativity, adventure, and playfulness during our sessions. We are not just smiling and saying cheese the entire time. I know how to keep any kid entertained, we will play, run around, and I will let them be themselves. I don't always want to showcase the good, I want to showcase the tears, frustration, and simple moments of being a child, as well as laughter and joy.
I love your work and wish you lived closer!!
As stated in my destination wedding question, I LOVE TO TRAVEL! I want to expand my horizons and clientele wherever I possibly can. If you love my work and I resonate with you, I WILL travel to you! We can make the most out of this adventure whether it's for your family or you and your significant other. I can design a custom package to fit your vision. Let's make some magic!!
Do I have to order prints through you?
After each gallery is delivered, you will gain the full printing rights to your photos. This means that you can print wherever you'd like! However, you have the option to print directly from the your gallery site and you can continue to support my small business :) I can't stress enough about the importance of having a high quality printing lab for your images. The lab I use through my website is topnotch and will produce beautifully colored images. They will not be distorted or discolored, I have had this happen to multiple clients who have ordered through low-end labs. Just as you invest in your photographer, you should invest in your photo products! I am always happy to suggest other labs if you don't want to go through mine!
What other sessions do you offer besides wedding and family?
If you can think of it, I will do it! I love to expand my creativity and I can offer so much to you! If there is something I feel that I am not willing or properly equipped to do, I will always be upfront and honest, and steer you in the right direction to someone who can help you :)
In a nutshell, here's what I offer!
-mama + me
-business + product marketing
Not all of these are listed on my booking site. Once I gain a better understanding of your vision, I can provide you a customized package!
