I love capturing people truest selves. Caught off guard and candid is my favorite way to make a portrait it really en-capsules who you are. If you book me we will get to know each other so I can properly capture your essence in a photograph. I love working with couples, children, and individuals. I can ensure that every shoot we do will be fun and you'll walk away with amazing photos and memories. People have told me that I make them feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
