Indoor

Timeless and striking, studio sessions offer both ease and privacy. Indoor sessions tend to run a little shorter and simpler due to less walking around (unless it’s a Creative Series session). I’ll bring my equipment to your home, or you can join me at my in-home studio. For large groups or maximum accessibility, I’m pleased to arrange rental of colleagues’ spaces that can accommodate whatever you need.

Outdoor

Natural beauty all around: you, the earth, the things we create. Enjoy a session at your favorite outdoor location: fresh air, beautiful light, great backdrop. Plan to follow ethical Leave No Trace principles in natural areas - and for urban areas too, for good measure. If permits are required, I’ll arrange the details. You bring yourself, your favorite outfit, and a smile.
