I love capturing the connection and love between people. It is so precious to be able to look back on photos of your family at different stages of our lives and really remember how we were at that moment. I love that I get to meet all sorts of people and get to know a little about them and then create and image that mirrors their love for each other. I especially love family events and weddings there is so much going on all around all the time and so much love and emotion. It is an absolute dream for me.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I do a lot of family and couple sessions. I try to build repour with the clients right away. I get them comfortable with me while I get ready for us to shoot. I find out the kids favorite food or animal, favorite joke things of that sort. once we get started I make it fun, we laugh and tell jokes. I ask them to tell me stories about why they love each other and favorite memories. My clients always tell me they had so much fun and loved their family time. I love that. I love that I can make a photoshoot fun for everyone.
