How do I choose a location?

When it comes to choosing a location, something to think about is what your end goal will be for these images. Are you hoping to create a 20''x30'' beautiful landscape image with you and your loved ones in it to fill that empty wall in the house? Is there a location that holds a special place in your heart where you would want to be photographed? Talk to me about what you are envisioning and I can help you find the perfect place. With that being said, whether you have a grand location in mind, or want something simple, I believe it is in those genuine emotions that come from the connections you have with your loved ones that ultimately make these images your prized possessions.

Not a question, but I am awkward in front of the camera...

Not to worry, my friend! You would be surprised how many people say that to me. I've never come away from a session thinking, 'wow, they were so stiff and awkward'. And I believe its because I make the session more about being in the moment with your fiancé, or family members, or whoever it might be. I make it more about just being together, hanging out, being silly and sweet with each other. Yes, I will direct you with poses, but from there we flow with small adjustments that either naturally come from you or are prompted by me. By the end of the session, you'll be a natural and the end result will be these beautiful, fun images that I know you will love!
