Hi friends and Happy November! I woke up today just excited about this month. We are looking forward to the upcoming holidays and we also have a couple birthdays in our family to celebrate. I have a list compiled of things I'm excited and passionate to write about over the next few weeks here on the blog. I won't fill up every post with shopping or gifts or consumerism because I can feel my spirit already resisting that and we just barely dipped a toe into November. But, I know my life runs a lot more smoothly with just a tad bit of planning ahead. Keeping this in mind I look forward to sharing some local shops, Etsy stores, and talented friends with you that I think those on your Christmas list would benefit from! Today I want to start by sharing some information about booking a photo session with me. You all know my camera is my dearest friend, photography my greatest passion. My photo sessions are unscripted, natural, and of the lifestyle genre, meaning I capture life as it unfolds before me. You can also buy a session for someone as a Christmas gift that can be redeemed at their convenience, or even gift a session to yourself! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Facebook to set up a gift certificate. PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION INFO.
As your photographer, I want to capture the breath-taking, beautiful, raw moments that are both real-life and rosy. I want to capture the way the light shines on your child's silhouette, the natural expressions and emotions that come to the surface, the quirks, breath, and bond you and your people share. I want to capture your smiles, your sadness, and everything in-between.
I want you and your tribe to show up, play, love, and just be together.
I want to show up in your home to document the daily rhythm that is currently your story. It doesn't need to be perfect or planned out or posed. In fact, I would rather it not be. It just needs to be you. THIS is what you'll want to remember 10 years down the road-the story. The deep laughs, the gritty truths, the true human connection and expression. A perfect pose can't do all that.
I specialize in lifestyle photography, capturing life as is.
Moments and snapshots like those tiny footprints on the floor, that soon will be wiped clean and new memories replacing them.
I show up to each session vowing to be myself, to be relaxed and comfortable. I want you to do the same. I offer two types of sessions. Session one takes place on my farm, for a time period of an hour to an hour and a half.
Session Two is an in-home session, where I hang out in your home for two and a half to three hours, as your family goes about its natural rhythm and routine.
Each type of session also includes a film. I film or capture photographs during the entire time we are together. The films are set to music so there's no pressure to worry about what you're saying the entire time. These films take memory-making to a whole new level. Below is an example of a recent film.
