Hello there! I am so glad that you are interested in a creative portrait session with me. You've found this page because we have already connected and I sent you here to see examples of my work so we are already past the first step! You will find that I am not your everyday photographer, I am first an artist. While I have nearly 20 years of experience in weddings, portraits, events, architecture/interiors, and travel, I have found that travel and creative portraiture are what my heart desires. I have retired from the rest of the list and focus solely on the latter. You can read more about me by clicking the logo at the top of the page, where you will taken to the main website and you can browse the breadth of my work both in photography and illustration.
Each session requires varying amounts of time, locations, equipment etc. depending on what you are searching for in the end result. So every session STARTS at $375 and goes up from there. What does it include? It includes the time and talent it takes to execute and communicate your session, an online gallery for viewing final images and ordering art prints, and web-sized, watermarked images for display on social networks etc. Travel, prints, and digital files are not included (I do not sell digital files). Prints and products are purchased separately from your session and I am happy to show you examples in person or over the web depending on your location. I ask for a 50% deposit to hold your date/time/location and the final 50% due one week before your session date.
So what are the next steps? The next step after deciding this is the type of session that your heart has been searching for, is for us to delve deeper into the creative portion of this process. Let's talk about what makes you tick, what inspires you, what gives you meaning to that heartbeat of yours. Because after all of the experience I have had, one thing rings true for every shoot that I do...it has to MEAN something. Too many times I have seen weddings with themes just for the fun of it, portrait sessions because they felt they needed it instead of wanting it, and events that truly had no meaning behind them in the end. I am here as your potential photographer, not just to photograph you, but to reveal your soul through portraiture in a way that not just anyone can achieve. I am here as your photo-therapist if you will. So let's talk about why you are here, what happened in your life that made you want to reach out to an artist for your portrait, rather than your everyday photographer? So click that logo above to be taken back to the main site and fill out the contact form. While I can't promise to make all your dreams come true, I'm not a genie, I can promise to give you a portrait experience you've never had before with someone who truly cares about you and what the final product reflects.
Talk to you soon friend, I can't wait to get to know you better through my heart and my lens.
**Below you will find a gallery of examples of my Creative Portrait work. Everything from a romantic relationship akin to Bonny & Clyde, to a mother graduating college who wanted portraits to show her struggle, to someone who has never been in front of the camera before and wanted to expose themselves to the world with all their vulnerabilities, to celebrating a milestone birthday in unique ways, to honoring grandparents, to following children during their playtime rather than forcing them to pose, to witnessing love be love rather than a forced pose, to locations that mean something to one's soul rather than a place everyone has had their photographs done before...remember the point is this: "Be who you want to be. Be you. Don't be what you think others want to see. Lead with your heart and listen to your soul." **
