What do I photograph?
unconventional milestones (did you take your medication regularly this month? did you do the thing you wanted to instead of the thing you thought you should? Let's celebrate!), movement based activities, animals + their people, meaningful places + their people, creatives, artists, cultural bearers, survivors, dreamers, lovers, fighters, folks reclaiming their body + memories, end of life, grief.
What will working with me look like?
i tap into my entire creative background when preparing for and capturing your images. my practice is all about serendipity, creating the perfect conditions for beautiful unexpected occurrences to happen. to do this i use gentle, accessible creative prompts in my practice as a way to guide you to a place of natural being while in front of the camera. i don't see my camera as something to look at you with but rather something to SEE you with. my work is about feeling and i tailor my sessions in such a way that you will never feel like you are on display and awkward but rather as a space to exist as your truest self. yes dear one, your presence is magical and i'm here to capture the magnificence that is you!
What does a session include?
each session looks a little different. my goal is to create something you love that will last a lifetime. to do this i carefully consider all you share with me during your consultation to tailor your session to meet your dreams. some things that stay consistent for every shoot include:
*at least 1 hour together, at least 50 hand-edited images
*full-resolution edited digital images
*printing rights to all images
*i bring a couple of "fun" cameras to each shoot for you to play with during your session. this includes an easy to use point and shoot (film) camera and a Polaroid camera. you will receive these images in the final package i deliver. this is a playful way to give you agency during the shoot, break the ice, and remember this meaningful moment.
