What to expect
WHAT TO EXPECT
My work is all about documenting authentic moments and milestones in people’s lives. I love to observe, but still give a bit of direction to help you feel more relaxed during your session.
STYLE & LOCATIONS
Since my style of photography is clean, simple and natural; I choose not to operate out of a studio. All sessions are done outdoors on location with the exception of newborn sessions (see below for more details). Many factors must be taken into consideration when choosing a location for your wedding or lifestyle session, and part of my job is choosing the right locations for you. I’m not going to lie, I get a little giddy when clients say to me “Do your thing” or “Pick a spot you think will look good”. Honestly it allows me to let my creativity flow and yield the best possible result. With that said, I won’t take offence if you have a particular idea or two to contribute. Just be aware that essentially you are hiring me for my creative talent and eye for what I think will look best. I know Pinterest is awesome for ideas but please just be respectful and expect that I will likely put my own twist on the idea to stay original rather than replicate another photographer’s work.
For newborn sessions, I will gladly come to your home and document your interactions with your new little one. For this reason, I use very little in the way of props, fancy backdrops or showy outfits. My main focus is you and your brand new baby, not all the extras. All that’s necessary to get great images is a few neutral receiving blankets and good natural light. I will bring anything else I need. Also, feel free to dress comfortably as if you were spending a lazy Sunday cuddling in bed. It’s important for you and your family to be relaxed and comfortable during the session.
If you’re still unsure if my style is right for you, please see my recent blog posts to get a better feel for the feel for what to expect. If you have any further questions please email me and I’d be happy to chat.
