so ,  what's  the  deal ?

If you're looking for a photographer to completely recreate someone else's 'look' or style, edit your body size/shape, or make you look like a different person, I might not be the girl for you. If you're shopping around for a photographer because you just need one picture for the yearbook, you

may not see the value in what I offer--that's okay! You deserve to work with a photographer who fits your needs.

Regardless of whether or not I am the photographer for you, I want you to know: 

You deserve authentic, intentional, unique photographs of yourself. 

Regardless of your fear of being in front of a camera, your personal insecurities, or your ideas of what a photoshoot entails. How you feel when you look at pictures of yourself MATTERS.

If you've been looking for a photographer & are feeling a bit intimidated because you 'don't know what to do with your hands in pictures' or you 'hate having your picture taken' (surprise! same here) or you don't have a lot of pictures of yourself that you like...

I'm the photographer for you. 

 I look back at my senior pictures and they’re really pretty! Totally.

But....

 I wish I had invested in myself, in who I was and not tried to look like what everyone else looked like in their senior pictures. I understand the tradition of senior pictures and I totally respect and celebrate that. But I’m not here to force you into a dress and heels if that isn’t you.

 

I've been in this industry for several years now and I understand the importance of delivering not just 2 or 3 good pictures, but a gorgeous gallery full of images that you're completely obsessed with. My favorite feedback is, “There’s too many good ones! How are we supposed to pick just one for the yearbook?! We’re overwhelmed. S.O.S.” 

I will be up front with you though, I am a photographer.

I am not a spray tan expert, personal trainer, hair stylist, or makeup artist.

I capture pictures of what's in front of me.

That's what's reflected in my galleries.

I will not edit you to look differently than you appear in front of me (with the exception of acne) but more on that later.

If you’ve never done a photoshoot before, here’s what you should expect on a shoot with me:

 Expect some ridiculous dance moves (from me, but please join in!), expect to see a beautiful sunset, expect to see the pictures as I'm taking them (I'm not afraid to show you the back of the camera!), and expect me to know every lyric to any One Direction or Taylor Swift songs on your playlist.

And last but certainly not least, expect to end up with a gallery full of beautiful,

empowering pictures where you look and feel like the best version of yourself.
