I'm not about creating the flawless, traditional family portrait, or asking you to sit still on the couch and smile politely at the camera. I don't use studio props or backdrops. My goal is to capture your authentic YOU-ness - your family's emotions and connections. I want to tell a story. A story that reflects the true essence of your family. Your story.
I adore lifestyle photography - documenting real-life moments and milestones - creating art out of real, every day life. You might even choose a day-to-day activity to focus on for part of our session. Taking a hike at Lake Catherine state park, strolling through the Entergy Park trails, spending a morning or evening on Lake Hamilton, baking cookies in your kitchen, lounging (or pillow fighting) in Mom & Dad's bed, enjoying a picnic, flying a kite, a slip-n-slide session, a fishing excursion, a touch football game, or perhaps participating in some antics in the family business warehouse (example below) ...anything that reflects the true spirit of your family.
As I photograph your kiddos, feel free to step back as I pull the them aside to talk to them and laugh with them. I'm trying to elicit those genuine, unique expressions that create priceless images that you'll enjoy for years to come. I want to capture their movement, their natural smiles, their giggles, their smirks...even their precious little pouty faces.
