Tell me about yourself. Why are you a lifestyle photographer?
I grew up in a little town in Northeast Pennsylvania with my parents and two younger sisters. Like most children, I especially enjoyed seeing photos of myself and my family from years past. I could spend hours paging through old albums and asking my parents questions about them. As a Media Specialist for my school, I understand the importance of storytelling. I love capturing life events and moments to tell stories that will be treasured for years to come.
I hope to create the same joyful story for your family as you grow and change over the years. Whether you want a beautiful art centerpiece for your home, a series of images for a keepsake album, a lovely photo for your holiday card, or all of the above, we can plan a session that helps capture your life and relationships.
How would you describe your portrait style?
I believe the most beautiful images come from natural and heartfelt actions and emotions. My goal is to capture who you are and how you naturally interact with one another.
This philosophy is what we photographers refer to as “Lifestyle photography”. The photos are centered around your personality and your everyday life. Rather than going to a studio and creating a standard “portrait”, we will work together to come up with a session concept that truly fits you.
I prefer to work on location in your home, neighborhood, business, or favorite date location—places that have meaning for you. This helps keep you relaxed and also lets us document your real life. I have also discovered many magical areas to capture you with your loved ones as well.
What are your rates and how do I book a session?
You can ask more questions or start the booking process by emailing me. I would love to hear from you!
