Be Yourself

I prefer to take portraits in natural light whenever possible. I shoot on location, whether it's at the beach, park, or in your home. I have researched many locations to find the perfect backdrop for your photos. Bring an entire family or just yourself. I always look to make it a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
Whether you're a natural in front of the camera or you're a shy one, I can work with you to get the look you're trying to achieve. We can set up posed shots or you can just be yourself while I capture what I see from my perspective.
If you're looking for something more than just the traditional posed portraits, I prefer to let my clients relax and be themselves. By interacting with others or engaging in activities, you'll be natural and look better in photos.

So what kind of photography do you do?

I get asked this question quite a lot so I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you what kind of photography I do. People are my specialty. Big people, little people, new people, marrying people, pregnant people, naked people. People. I love to photograph emotion. I am drawn to it. I relate to it. I am an emotional being whose goal is to capture the emotion I see in you! In those in-between moments when you think no one is looking; in the mundane moments that couldn't possibly be interesting; that's where I want to be. I LOVE surprising you with images you weren't expecting. I LOVE taking normal, everyday things and making moments out of them. Who would have thought that eating lunch, or baking cookies, or holding hands could be so special? I do... and let me capture those moments.

Birthday Shoot (Lorain Child Photographer)

My little man turned 5 this past sunday....
We went out and got a few wonderful shots. Amazing how fast they really do grow up.

I am so lucky to have this guy in my life! I dont know what I would do without him!
