This is a collection of some of my recent studio and outdoor portraiture. I photograph women, men, couples, children, and families of all ages, including pets. I particularly love creating fine artwork for celebrations and milestones in our lives. These are legacy portraits that will be hung on your family's walls to be cherished for generations.
A portrait session with me begins with a pre-photoshoot consultation to talk about how you would love to be photographed, and with whom. We design your photoshoot together here. We talk about wardrobe, accessories, colors, fabrics, and your hair and make-up artistry wishes. Bring your favorite casual and evening looks, or choose from my studio wardrobe. I have tons of fabrics and floral as well, and I've been known to make a dress on the spot. We can spoil and celebrate just you, or you can bring a friend for an enjoyable girl's day out! This is the ultimate mother and daughter Just Us celebration.
Do you love the Hollywood starlet looks of the '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, or '70s? My team loves vintage, and we can create custom wardrobes just for you. If you'd love something edgy and modern, I'd love to collaborate and bring your vision to life for you! If you would like to go further back in time, imagine owning a fine art portrait that has transformed you into a renaissance painting. The pre-photoshoot consultation here delves a bit into fine art history, and we discover just what I can create for you. Clients often combine the two, beginning with contemporary images, and ending with our fine art painterly concept. Whatever your inspiration and tastes, this is the time to create some epic artwork to truly celebrate you and your family.
On the day of your shoot, you are welcomed with light snacks and sips while you enjoy a pampering custom makeover. I gently guide you through all of your looks, with posing, professional lighting, set changes, and direction throughout, so don't feel that you have to "know what to do" beforehand. I've got you.
This is often a transformative, empowering experience for people emotionally as well as visually. Speaking of which, don't forget to book a night out after your photo shoot, because you will look and feel like a million bucks!
