birth & lifestyle Photography
The journey towards transforming my photography into work began to emerge in 2008. I was asked to photograph the military homecoming of a close friend and her husband after a long deployment. I studied film photography in high school and very much enjoyed the dark room yet it was not until that homecoming shoot that I realized what a rewarding form of art photography is...telling a story from behind the lens, freezing those moments forever.
While I specialize in documenting birth, I also offer various types of in-home lifestyle shoots that capture the authenticity of your life, your children, your family…. real and raw …moments that you never get back. I offer photography packages for families, newborns, maternity, engagements/proposals, wedding or baby showers, small weddings, parties, anniversaries, galas, fundraisers, dinners, birthdays, and other events as such.
My gear of choice is Nikon cameras and lenses, swapping in some of my father's vintage 1970's lenses from his old 35mm. My work reflects what your eye beholds. I typically work with available light and I prefer to shoot what is organically happening rather than posing images. I rarely use artificial lighting and sometimes shoot film over digital. Post-processing of images is kept to a minimum.
Photography is storytelling - my goal is to tell your story.
