ready to tell your story?
Sitting in my parents’ living room as the
evening sun cascaded through the open
windows, I looked around to see what I was
surrounded by. To my left, my niece casually
sat on the floor constructing the perfect princess tea party, and to my right, my parents
laughed and admired her creativity. The
lingering aroma of Mom’s gumbo filled the
salty marsh air as we sat and relived the
day’s events after dinner. Across the room, my
brother had fallen asleep in Dad’s chair. We were
wrapped in coziness, dressed in pajamas, and it
was simply perfect. Oh to have a picture of this
exact moment: something to change a fleeting
moment into a permanent object that I could
hold in my hands and look upon again, reliving
the subtle happiness in that room. Something
to celebrate that exact split second for years
to come, and for generations to come. A
photograph that showed us as we were, in that
moment. A family.
2022 Spring Portraits
For investment details and availability, please send a message via the form below. Hour long portrait sessions begin at $500.
Think fun, think timeless, think classic. Props and signs you may have seen online may look dated in your memory book a few years from now. I want to create timeless images.
If you’re thinking of bringing something, think ‘meaningful’ and ‘classic’ - a family quilt to sit on, your letter jacket to throw on, your baseball glove and a ball.
What to wear, or more appropriately, what not wear! Stick to one great outfit, two if you simply can’t decide. Wardrobe changes take time out of our limited lighting time.
When you're picking out your outfits for the day, make sure you wear clothes that you feel good in. If you need some inspiration, we send over a Pinterest board with some of our favorite outfit ideas that photograph well.
The sooner the better! Most of my weekends are booked many months in advance due to weddings. Busy seasons mean I may have less availability, so I recommend scheduling any portrait sessions at least three months in advance.
If Mister Golden Sun is
our lighting guy, think of Mother Nature as the one in
charge of our set dressing. Rain, snow, excessive wind, or muddy conditions may mean we have to reschedule. In that case, we’ll make the call early enough for you to cancel any hair/makeup appointments ahead of time and work together to select a new date. To accommodate reschedules, I keep a few dates open per month.
