People undoubtedly take more pictures in the digital era, but they seem to have less purpose and permanence. I believe that quality portraits matter even more in the age of selfies.
My approach to family portraits is all about understanding each person's personality and interests and allowing them to shine through. I avoid overly-posed shots in favor of helping clients relax and have fun during the session so I can capture authentic moments and true expressions.

Congratulations on your recent engagement!
I know you've got a long list of things to do in preparation for your wedding day. Let me help you check this one off the list by creating beautiful images that celebrate your love for each other.
As with all of my portraiture, I'll want to learn a little bit about you and your interests to select the right setting and style for your engagement photos.
Allow me to photograph your newborn to create beautiful, lasting memories for you and your family. I use portable studio lighting with softboxes and diffusers to create soft, natural light, all in the comfort of your own home.
I enjoy photographing portraits of all kinds. Whether it's family, engagement, newborns, or graduating seniors. You name, I can shoot it.
I prefer working outdoors in locations that have special significance to my clients. This allows me to use natural light and natural surroundings to create beautiful environmental portraits that have context and convey a sense of place. It also allows me to capture relaxed, authentic portraits of people when they're "in their element." I like to schedule 60-90 minute sessions and direct the shoot by suggesting a variety of locations and poses, while keeping it relaxed and fun.
