There’s a lot of intense pressure out in the world to conform - but in response to that, there’s a lot of pressure to love yourself. A lot of times, this comes with messages about loving your body, specifically to sell you products or services. It can be a lot, especially if you (like most people I know) have really struggled with body image and self-esteem. That doesn’t even touch the kinds of cruelties that our world heaps onto people who aren’t the “standard” size, age, race, gender, or sexuality as people held up as ideal.
Hey! I’m excited to take your picture!
I know that sounds corny, but I am legit excited. My specialty is portraits, broadly defined: a photo that communicates the heartbeat of a person, family, or event. We’re a team in making portraits you’re going to really love. The goal is making the next picture above your mantle or heirloom album that you’ll treasure for years.
Making a connection with you and understanding what you need to feel comfortable in front of the lens is what I do - I don’t just tell you what to do, I show you! You bring your best self forward and I’ll help it show in a photo.
Don’t hesitate to reach out. :)
