MORE THAN JUST A CLICK OF A BUTTON

My services are about more than a total stranger snapping some photos, burning them on a disk and is never to be seen from again. My photography experience goes deeper than the surface. Whether simple portraits or elaborate high end sessions, we stay fully engaged to create images that show the most special side of you.

Consultation

Every great session starts with great communication. What kind of session are you looking for? Individual, family, kids, or maybe creative? We discuss vision, color schemes, poses, wardrobe and props. After we establish a clear vision, I begin planning. 

Planning

The vision is assembled after we discuss session details and I shift my focus to the session as a whole. I consider most ideal location and lighting situations, combined with the wardrobe we discussed to create the most brilliant session based around your needs.

Shooting

Day of the photo shoot we bring all of the combined elements together and execute a killer session. I will guide you through your session with pose coaching to ensure you look your best. While I like posed photos, I encourage clients to loosen up, play some music and have fun!

Editing

After the photo shoot I go through each individual photo and determine if it makes the cut. Those that make it I hand edit. Hand editing includes color correcting, smoothing out skin tones non destructively, and removing any non-permanent blemishes. Though my editing style has changed, I still use some of the techniques displayed in this time lapse video.
