What is your specialty?
I specialize in telling the love stories between families through candid photography using natural light. My aim is to tell the journey of couples waiting for their first baby, the expectation of a child becoming the big sibling, the joy of grandparents seeing their children raising their own family. I utilize both lifestyle and fine art styles to create images that feel natural yet refined.
My favorite images are usually a series of photos that tell a story. My final collections are best viewed as a whole in an album that you can enjoy paging through time and time again, cuddled up with your loved ones.
Are you legit? Like, licensed, insured and taxes and stuff?
Oh yes! I take pride in running a legitimate business so I pay business income and sales taxes accordingly and I feel great about contributing to our economy! I also strive to support other small, local business owners whenever I can.
I see you are in Plano, TX! Do you travel?
North Dallas – specifically Plano, is where I call home, but I provide photography services throughout DFW. All Portrait Collections include travel up to 15 miles from 75093. Further travel is charged at the rate of $3.00 per mile. I also often travel to Brazil in order to visit my family and capture beautiful moments in that gorgeous tropical country. If you live in São Paulo, please keep in touch! I would love to build memories with you!
Do you shoot RAW? Do I own the copyright to the images in my collection?
I certainly do shoot in RAW format, but do not release unfinished product. All your images will be color-corrected and fully edited. For each product you decide to purchase, you will receive the matching digital image optimized for social media. It also includes an authorization to share as you like, but I retain the Copyright. The Copyright ensures that you may not alter the photos in any way, sell them, or enter them into publications or competitions, etc. without my consent.
Do you offer all digitals?
Although I love my digitals, photos are not meant to be stored on your computer. They are meant to be truly tangible captures of your favorite memories. My lifestyle approach to photography means my images are best enjoyed as a collection that comes together to tell a story. So whether that be on display as a wall-gallery in your living room, or in a custom-designed album on your coffee table, I want you to be able to revisit that story and be transported back to those memories time and time again.
Why should I print my products with you?
Being a professional photographer running a legit business, I have exclusive access to professional labs. Your investment is worthy and you deserve the very best. My aim is to offer the full professional photography experience (and access to truly professional-grade prints you wouldn’t otherwise have access to).
Ok, I have to have you! How do I book my session? Will you hold my date?
In fairness to all my clients, all portrait sessions are booked only with a paid retainer and fully executed model release. Dates are not “held” without either of those elements. So please contact me and we can set up a time to get together and chat about all your ideas to ensure we’ll be a good fit. If I’m not available on your date, I will be happy to pass along some great recommendations.
