Let me just start off by being super honest with you by saying that one, I’m so incredibly excited, and two, that I am so humbled and honored by the fact that you might allow me to do the deeply important work of telling your story.
If you are at this point, my hope is that you have seen some of what I do on Instagram or Facebook, or looked through my portfolio on this website, and that you are so deeply in love with the way that I photograph lives that you want your story told by me. If all of that is true, I am so over-the-moon excited to work with you. However, the way that I photograph lives truly only works if you whole-heartedly trust me and how I work.
My mission is to document life in such a way that you can look at these images and remember where you’ve been, what you’ve endured, and to tell your story to the generations to come. Over the years, I’ve found that when posing my clients, I was only able to tell the story of what they looked like at that time. The work that I was doing was shallow and only scratching the surface of the story that lay beneath. That is why I moved away from portrait photography and back to my roots- photojournalism or documentary photography, where I stopped posing my clients.
Now, you are probably thinking something along the lines of, “if you don’t pose us, how are we going to know what to do??” Right now the idea may seem daunting, but trust me when I tell you that it’s actually easier. As you’ll find from reading through this today, I do a ton of prep work for each and every session so that I can truly know you. This allows us to work together to not only document your life as honestly as possible, but to also structure your session in such a way that you just have to live your life (which is what we are documenting) and I will just be a silent observer, telling your story. I often say in a session that “you are just going to live, and I’m going to be your personal paparazzi for a few hours!”
At this point, if you are completely on board with this, then contact me now to book your documentary session! However, if you have any questions about how this works or what it looks like, please continue to read through the information on this page, or send me an email with any and all questions. I am more than happy to share why I do what I do and how, but please know that I will not try to force you into working with me if I am truly not the best fit for you (and I won’t be offended).
