About working with me...
I only shoot families in-home (and backyards and front yards, and in the treehouse, and on the front porch...ya know, the good spots of your life). Family isn't a one size fits all kind of word. Family is sometimes a spouse and pets, a spouse and 12 kids, a baby on the way, or a boyfriend of 12-years. Don't overthink the word, and remember, your family is perfect and worth documenting, no matter the size or labels. I come across as awkward and a little weird because I am awkward and a little weird. Let's go into this session understanding that, mmm'kay? My process is a combination of documentary (you existing in your home as you normally would) and portrait (me telling you where to go and what to do with your face) and fine art (me telling you to do weird things in yummy light over and over again until my vision comes to life in my camera.) I don't care if your house is messy, I get it, mine is too. I'm looking for light and things that speak to me, we can deal with everything else later.
Because your home is where most of your memories happen. Home is where you are most comfortable. And from my own experiences, home is where the art is.
I don't shoot extended families, birthday parties, or look at pinterest boards of your ideas. I love all of these things, they just don't jive with my work. Ya just have to trust me and my process on this one.
I book sessions before 9/10AM and after 3/4PM (depending on the time of year) for best light; I work in your home for 1-hour and you will get a digital collection of your images (75 artistic images in color + black & white) In 2018, I will only be taking sessions during 4-weeks and some random weekends out of the year (dates listed below) and scheduled sessions go on, rain or shine (but not blizzard, because I can't get to you if that happens!) Session fee is $350, $100 non-refundable deposit due at booking, remaining balance due 1-week prior to session. Travel fee added for locations farther than 30-miles from my address.
