Your family session experience
Before I became a wedding photographer, I was primarily a family photographer. Family sessions are still (and will forever be) near and dear to my heart! Choosing the right photographer for your family isn't easy, so thank you for considering me! What you may notice right away in my work is the emotion all wrapped up in each photograph. This is because as an artist, I always look for real, authentic moments and my goal is to freeze those moments forever.
The way your child rests their head on your chest.
The look on their smiling faces almost as if you can hear the giggles!
The way your spouse wraps their arms around you and how that made you smile.
I have an unposed approached to family sessions. What does this mean? I’m not a fan of stiff, awkward, stagnant, look-at-the camera-and-say-cheese poses. Nevertheless, I start out a session doing a little bit of that. But for the most part I will guide your family to foster a more storytelling session that focuses on capturing natural emotions, movements and moments. If you prefer to look at the camera for the entire duration of the shoot then I am most definitely not the person for your family!
I document love and joy. I capture the fun, genuine, raw emotion. I live for the big moments, the in-betweens, the ones where you don’t think anyone else is watching. My goal is to tell your story and document the authentic and unique love that you and your family have for each other. I want to capture the real stuff! The crazy beautiful sunset is just a bonus!
