Are you tired?

Tired of boring backgrounds and stiff poses for your portraits? So am I! That's why I do all of my shoots on location with natural lighting. I can come to your home or use any of the many beautiful locations in the area. I work with you to get the photos YOU want instead of using tired, generic poses. I want your experience to be relaxed and enjoyable. After all, that's what produces the most natural expressions for the best pictures!

Pretty Basic

It's pretty basic...I love people and I love photography.
I don't think you should have to pay thousands of dollars for great pictures.
So, I provide quality photography at an affordable price.
I work to make sessions fun and relaxed so that clients get photographs they love.

Prices and Structure

I aim to make my portrait sessions casual, easygoing, fun, and intimate.
My style is fresh, photojournalistic, and timeless.
My portrait sessions produce more than just pretty photographs. I capture authentic moments: your essence, your love, your relationships, and your beautiful history. I am a storyteller… and, this is your story.
Working primarily with natural light, I capture memories that will last a lifetime.
On average my sessions last a minimum of an hour or more ... and usually more
I love artistic imagery and the photojournalistic approach to photography because I believe it tells a beautiful story.

All portrait sessions include my time, talent, professional retouching, and the processing of your images. I have thought of doing where no prints are included, but why... I believe that you have to have something tangible no matter what so with each session you get a minumum of four prints.
If you are interested in detailed prices and package information, please email me:
Prices are based on locations within the Lorain area. Should I need to travel outside of this area, an additional travel fee will be determined.

I love doing portrait sessions and look forward to telling your story!

Why so difficult...

So, we just moved and that was a chore on its own... but... why is it so difficult to photograph my own children?
case in point... i had this great idea for our "we're moved" cards and all and so in my head I went over and over.. then tried the set up and the lighting wasnt working for me, so waited another day.. and right what I wanted in my head.. so, i brought the kids out to help me but thats when their listening ears went off...
We were able to get the shot that we wanted, but.. of course not all looking the same way, etc... but... I love taking photos of children, and especially toddlers as their expressions and mannerisms are great.. but when it comes to my own i think my own frustration kicks in and then its downhill. But with other kids, it just flows perfect and I get the shots I want, and the parents want : without the frustration
I get some great shots and actually too many, that we have soo many that are frame worthy just sitting... but.. now with the new house maybe those will turn into my wall....

all in all.. photographing children is a passion.. im looking forward to a few shoots that I am working on...
