Reconnect with what matters. I know all too well that life is too short to keep fixating on the past and worrying about the future. Besides my genuine curiosity (*nosiness*) about what makes people who they are, I was drawn to being a portrait photographer because I saw how portraits reignited self-love, reframed life's purpose, and planted seeds of appreciation for those in front of my lens. That is why my goal is to create honest, judgement-free photos that allow you to reconnect with yourself and see the unique beauty in your life's story.
The Person Behind The Lens
A portrait and lifestyle photographer with a whimsical approach. Based in Shepherdstown, WV.
My work is an expression of the uncovered beauty in the people and moments I cross paths with. I believe your photos should feel like home and encourage you to find a new beauty to celebrate in all stages of your life.
What is your reschedule policy?
Do you offer only digitals without the print credit?
I make every effort to be as flexible as possible, especially in the times of COVID-19. However, you'll find that I like to maintain communication the week leading up to your session to make sure you're good to go, and I will ask for a confirmation 48 hours out from your session. If there is a no call, no show, or cancelation (excluding extreme circumstances) within that 48 hour window, my session retainer is non-refundable.
Unless you plan on booking an elopement with me, all portrait session collections come with both digitals and a print credit. I will not swap out the print credit for more digitals upfront, but there is an option in the online store to purchase individual files with your print credit.
How would you define your style?
How long will it take to receive my photos?
Most would describe my style as dreamy or whimsical, and I always aim to be as candid as possible. Be prepared to feel extra goofy during your session and tap into your inner child by playing in a patch of flowers, throwing leaves in the air, or dipping your feet in the spring river water. I always aim add some movement into any poses I may throw your way. Make sure to view my portfolio on my website to see if my style fits your aesthetic.
As much as I say I'm going to go home and rest after a long day of shooting, I'm actually sitting beside a bowl of popcorn and some coffee picking out the very best of the best from your session. With that being said, it does take some time to curate and edit your personalized online gallery. You'll be able to view your photos within two weeks of your session date, and depending on which collection you chose, you could receive the digitals and place your order within 24-hours of your gallery being opened.
