I understand how precious every family’s time is each day, so my sessions are shorter, but without feeling rushed. I work efficiently and offer plenty of direction the entire time so every family has fun and comes away with a wide variety of images they’ll love. At the end of every session, the parents are beaming and tell me, “That was so much fun! We can’t believe you got our son/daughter to smile like that for the camera!”
Parents love the natural, honest, smiling photos I consistently deliver. My expertise in posing families with small children, getting smiles and laughter out of kids, and even engaging the teenagers who aren’t interested in the shoot, are things all of my clients value. I’m on time, am flexible with your schedule, and thorough in my pre-shoot preparation guidance.
Through my Master’s degree in new media photojournalism, I gained insight into letting a moment unfold naturally, and candidly, to document raw emotion. I can tell a story with a single image, or compose a coherent series, bringing your family’s love and bonding to life. (Corcoran College of Art + Design (prior to the merger with GWU).
I also offer print collections that are easy to order and hassle-free, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy your photos.
I speak French, Spanish, and some Arabic, and have been a tango and swing dancer for 20 years. My experience living in multiple countries taught me how to communicate with people from all walks of life, a skill that has become invaluable to my photography and one that helps me make my clients feel instantly comfortable while they’re in front of the camera.
