About Me

-about me-
Metangula, Niassa 2010
From the tiniest toes to the wisest grin I strive to capture the essence of all who grace the other side of my lens. I want to look at a photograph and know something about the person, and that moment. It is great to look at a photograph of your loved one and feel you know what they are thinking. This is what I will provide for you. A piece of life lived, an encapsulated memory, a moment captured in time. I know what it is like to want pictures that will remind you of your child’s different expressions, attitudes, and reactions to their surroundings. This is why I have been instinctively guided into a more photojournalistic approach to photography. I like to stand back and let my clients live. I strive to capture life. As a lover of art, fashion and music I want to give you the cutting edge, cool and funky image, as well as the traditional portrait that will have you bubbling with excitement to show everyone. I see the world in pictures and I would love to share them with you.

-your session-
When you book your session we will discuss in detail what you are looking for in your photographs. We will spend anywhere from one to two hours together at a location of your choice. You may choose to have the session in your favorite park, the city, your home, or another location. If you like, I can choose a location for you. I find joy in finding locations to match my client’s personalities, and prefer to have sessions at an outdoor location because it is always an adventure. We will begin the session with a few posed family portraits while everyone is fresh and then the real fun begins. We will play, explore, laugh, joke, stroll, and even run. Yes.

-families and children-
Families are encouraged to “come as you are.” Relax and be yourself. That is all I really ask of you. During our sessions we will chat as I get to know each of you better. When taking photos of younger children alone I ask that parents keep an eye out, but coaching is a no, no (shaking my finger). What to wear… how about what not to wear? Please be wary, words, and logos on your clothing. They may be a distraction from the most important part of the photograph, which is you!
