Storytelling Documentary Photographer

PRE-CONSULTATION:  After we set a date, I will contact you via email or call to talk about what kind of photos you are envisioning for your session and how I can best tell your story. 

Are you interested in an engagement session in the city or in your home because you want to showcase your love for cooking together?  Did you just have a baby and would like storytelling newborn photos?  Is this your daughter’s 1st birthday and would like to have a cake smashing session?  Or would you like a day in the life session (my favorite!)?  I can capture your morning routine as you hustle to get your kids to school, join you at your daughter’s soccer practice, or be there at bedtime where there are usually lots of hugs and cuddles.  Whatever the moment, the occasion, the vision, we will both be on the same page once this pre-session consultation is complete. 

Almost all of my sessions include a photo book – I use a professional photo printing lab and absolutely love the quality of their books! 

“… imperfect, natural sessions create the most perfect photos …”
