As a lifestyle photographer, I enjoy documenting lives from the eye of an observer. My favorite images are relaxed and real. I look not for perfection but authenticity as I strive to capture *the real you* in our short time together. I have a tendency to zero in on the little things, details that might otherwise go unnoticed.
And even the ones that do get noticed.
Because one thing I know for certain is every single second is precious. A gift. We are constantly changing – life is constantly changing. I want to capture the real you today. To help you savor this moment in time. In all its crazy glory, especially if you’re a family with young children. Because someday they will no longer wear diapers, have tantrums, or attach themselves to your leg.
And trust me, someday you will miss it. ALL OF IT.
When booking a session, we will work together to find a location that best reflects you. It could be an open field or perhaps an old barn. I could join you berry picking or sledding. Hanging out in Stillwater. Perhaps you’ve spotted a colorful building and would love to have your session there. I am open to ideas and love to shoot outside the box.
When dressing for the session, think more about coordinating rather than trying to look exactly alike. Mixing colors, patterns, and styles work well as long as everyone is in sync with each other. Need inspiration? Let me know and I’ll hook you up with some ideas.
Our time together is meant to be fun, enjoyable experience for everyone. Smiles are best when they happen on their own so I will shake things up a bit to help you relax. Enjoy each other and do your best to pretend I’m not there. Because this is about you. Your story, your life.
