I am based out of Port Orchard, Washington and am able to travel within the 50 United States. Travel fee may apply.
My photography has been described as Timeless, Classic, and Journalistic. I pride myself on capturing raw and genuine emotion that the viewer can feel. I want my clients to enjoy viewing their photos for many years to come!
Great! Click on the button below to be directed to my contact form! Your date will be added to my calendar when I have a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer is paid. Please understand that I am unable to hold a date through email inquiry.
You can expect your gallery in your email 2-4 weeks after your session date. Please allow 4-8 weeks for wedding galleries.
You can expect me to lead and guide you throughout your session. Most clients, feel some awkwardness at the beginning and that is mostly because they don’t really know what to expect or do, so I like to get you to relax by just chatting with you and getting to know you a little bit. I’ll check my camera settings and pose you to start just to get you to loosen up and then after that it’s smooth sailing! While I do posed shots, I prefer a more natural method of posing and I achieve that with prompts. I’ll prompt you to do different activities or actions and what transpires is truly beautiful! Last, but not least, you can expect to have loads of fun! The greatest feedback I get from my clients is how much fun they had especially when they weren’t expecting to have any fun at all.
After your session, I take proper care to download your images safely to my computer as well as backup drives. I then go through all your photos and pick the very best ones to deliver to you. After that, I begin the editing process. This is where I apply my personal touch to your portraits and make it my art. To be technical, I adjust exposure, shadows, and contrasts. Then I fine tune your images by removing lint on clothing, stray hairs, and blemishes.
The typical categories for location in our area are beach, farm, forest, or urban. To which I usually refer my clients to my website or social media pages to peruse through my portfolio and see which location “speaks to them”. After looking through my pages, clients usually are able to pick a spot right away.
