Being a lifestyle photographer, my heart longs for genuine emotion. Theres nothing more pure and beautiful than photographing you and your family as you are. Although traditional photos are just as important, there's nothing like being able to remember the softness of the sand, the way the wind blows through your hair, and warmth of a colorful sunset. I want my galleries to reflect every emotion that was felt that day.
I am a natural light photographer, so all of my sessions are held on location. Ever been curious about my favorite shooting locations? I'll be honest, some of my favorite photos have been in just an open field. There's so much beauty in simplicity. I am drawn to dreamy backlit photos and prefer shooting in open areas vs busy locations.
All of my sessions are photographed 1 hour before sunset. During golden hour, the light is softer and it photographs beautifully. When photographing too early in the day, we will usually have to avoid certain areas with too much sun.
What to wear
When planning your outfits for your session, try to avoid busy patterns, colors, and matching too perfectly. Pastels, textures, and solid colors are what I find photographs best with my editing style. Layering clothing is also a great way to add a little something special to your photos. I'm a sucker for long flowy dresses that create beautiful movement.
Need color advice? Send me an email and I would be happy to help you with a color palette!
When printing your photos, I always recommend using the professional print lab through your gallery. Print labs totally matter and play a huge factor in the quality of your photos. When using a professional print lab, the colors will be rich and as true to your digital images as possible.
