What’s My Style?
My style is relaxed, fun, candid and non-pressured. I love playing the ‘fly-on-the-wall’. I like to call my style of photos, “Personality Photography”. I allow my subjects to just go about what they’d normally do, interact with one another, and I just capture each moment, look, gaze, face, interaction … as it’s created. My job is pretty easy – I just capture your personality on film. Simple.
Years down the road, instead of looking back at a posed portrait of your family or child, you’ll be able to recall them as they were that day when their unique photo jogs your memory.
I prefer to shoot in areas that are comfortable for my subjects. Parks, wooded areas, fields or any outdoor setting provides beautiful natural backdrops that are perfect for any session. Urban settings such as uptown Charlotte are superb for artistic black and whites, and even engagement and senior photo sessions.
Home settings, or a familiar playground are perfect for children. If you’re nervous or uncomfortable, it will show on your photos, so I like to make sure my clients are as comfy as possible.
Natural light is used in all of my photo sessions.
You won’t be rushed and at the end of the day, my goal is to make you feel like you just spent a day hanging with a friend. Breaks, especially for children and pets are welcomed and encouraged. Snack time, nap time, breastfeeding, meals and bathroom breaks are never an issue. It’s YOUR day. I’m just takin pictures.
