a little about me and my style....

Photography is in my heart and is as much a part of me as my arms and legs.  The best part of my job is hands down the people that I meet along the way.  Getting to know someone through my lens is so very rewarding and fun. I feel quite lucky to have landed this cool gig I call a job.  It is really so much more for me.  

my style

Simple.  No perfection required. I strive to capture the real-ness of each person.  I need you to be yourself and nothing more.

I will spend time capturing details about your kids. big gorgeous eyes, wispy hair, long eyelashes, silly faces, pouty know,that kind of stuff.  The important stuff that you love so much about them.  The things you will always remember.  

I will also spend time capturing the little details I see.  a found ladybug in the palm of a hand, a tin of crayons, a loved 'blankie', a little hand holding a flower, those simple things that made the session special.  These are sometimes my favorite images to photograph.

I keep things as natural as possile, without posing anyone.  I will simply direct you a bit and let life unfold while I snap away.  

Call me, book a session...lets have some fun!

January 6, 2010 - 6:31 pm Kristen Burnett - Ziggy says "I want to win a photo session with the best "real life photographer" I know. Than I would like to imagine I can fly!

January 6, 2010 - 5:32 pm Kim - "Eyeball"...We have a saying in our house created by Megan (of course) that we say when there's a lull in our day or we can't think of anything else to say. We'll be laying on the floor playing a board game or watching a movie and inevitably one of us will utter, "eyeball" out of nowhere. Obviously I would LOVE to win a photo session on the house, but all I could think to comment was, "eyeball"!
