Sometimes a random scent will trigger a memory of a place or a time from long ago.
Similarly, photographs can help you re-experience such a moment many years from now, when you look at the tiny toes of your child, your beautiful wife in her wedding gown, or the melancholic eyes of your favorite furball.
Photography gives me the opportunity to tell your story, to help you hold on to the moments that make up your life.
I want to collaborate with you in picturing your life. And we are going to have fun doing that, promise.
Weddings are pure emotion and crazy stress, but you already knew that. And everyone usually runs late, which is okay because you are the bride and groom. This is your day after all.
Just make sure to have a pair of comfortable shoes to slip in.
I love weddings for their passion. And I have to watch myself to not get carried away with the emotions - some couples write vows that put Hollywood writers to shame.
And then there is dad in tears as he is giving away his daughter and later the groom dancing with his mom, her eye makeup quickly dissolving.
Unfiltered emotions! Those are just some of the memories that I want to capture and weave together in your album.
Patience. I admire the amount of patience some parents have. And I long for the days when I had half the energy of little children - little Energizer bunnies that I am struggling to keep up with.
Personally, I am most fond of family portraits that show precisely this raw energy, that are real. But I will guarantee at least one image that shows the "little rascals" well behaved. They do tire out a little bit eventually, hopefully.
But please do bring bribes!
I am still chuckling about below image - the parents were getting ready, while the children were thrilled about a cute puppy and looking elsewhere.
From quick LinkedIn headshot to a more elaborate senior graduate portrait to show off your different personas.
I am happy to tailor your portrait session to your needs. We can be "done" in thirty minutes or build clothing and location changes to match your imagination.
Along the way we will make sure to capture a shot for grandma's side table, your parents' wall and plenty variations for your Facebook header.
