* I apologize in advance, but please note that I only take a small handful of paid sessions per year. Feel free to email me directly if you wish to inquire about setting up an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org
A little about my process:
I believe that each individual person is a work of art- a masterpiece painted into existence with great purpose and great value. And sometimes you just need a good old fashioned photo session to remind you of just how naturally beautiful you are, too. This is why I believe in photographing with authenticity and providing you with an experience that will leave you walking away feeling… well, happy. I won’t leave you frozen in front of a camera feeling awkward and clueless on what to do with your hands or mouth. (If all else fails, hold the hand of whoever is next to you & laugh. Or just dance.) But you also won’t find me handing you props or forcing a smile on your face if you simply aren’t the “smiley” type, and I sure as heck am not going to wait for everyone’s eyes to meet my camera before I snap a photo. In fact, my most favorite moments are the ones I capture when people are just being their gorgeous, sometimes messy, super-cool & kinda-quirky selves. 😉 I want to see the realness of your life and capture genuine expressions- and I want you to feel something when you look through your photographs. My wish is that when you open your finished gallery, you’ll smile ear to ear as you see yourself for the magical, unique soul that you are. (And if I’m photographing your kiddos, I hope that I can make you tear up just a tiny bit.) 😉
My photography style generally leans heavily on the documentary side, and you’ll find that I tend to gravitate towards moody black and white images (that never go out of style when hanging on your wall!) & grain-enhanced filmy colors. What can I say? I love the convenience/low cost of digital photography, but my heart is permanently set on the timeless beauty of film. 🙂
Still interested? Great! Pricing is as follows:
Family*, Maternity, and Engagement Sessions– starting at $325
-Includes 60-90 min. session
-Locations within 30 miles of Swanton, OH (outdoor or in-home)
-Minimum of 45 retouched images available for digital download or on USB drive (for additional fee + tax.) with print release for archival purposes.
*Includes immediate family members only. I currently do not photograph extended family sessions. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Newborn Storytelling Sessions– $400
– Includes 2+ hour session in your own home
(Don’t stress about your home being magazine-ready. You’ve got a newborn for goodness sake- Let me handle it! 😉 Besides, it will barely be visible in the photos. If you *must* do anything, just tidy up the nursery or a bedroom that has a nice window for bright lighting, and we’ll be all set!)
-Photographs will be documentary-style* as I will capture your family going through the motions of all that beautiful newborn baby stuff. (i.e. diaper changes, sink baths, rocking, cuddling, swaddling, and feeding.)
– Short film included.
– Edited photos delivered via digital download or USB drive (for additional fee) with print release to print at leisure for archival purposes.
*Note: I do not take posed newborn photos with props, backdrops, etc. Ever. I also will not put your baby in a pumpkin at Halloween or stuff them in a stocking whilst being wrapped in twinkling lights at Christmastime. Stay off Pinterest, my friends. 😉
