WHAT'S YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH PHOTOGRAPHY?
I graduated from Union University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts & have always deeply loved capturing people in their element. I've been taking photos since middle school, so roughly 15 years of experience.
WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I shoot with a canon EOS DSLR camera body & switch out my 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, & 70-200mm lenses based on the setting. I have high quality canon speedlites & magnetmod diffusers if flash is needed.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE FROM MY SESSION?
You can expect around 50-75 images per hour of shooting time. It's always been my goal to give you each & every photo that I take during your session. Even though they may not all hang on your wall, I believe that you are paying for a service & deserve to relish in ALL the memories. The only photos that I take out are my mistakes, duplicates, or when eyes are half closed.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY FINAL IMAGES?
You will receive all of your images in color AND black & white in an online gallery that never expires with the ability to download, share & print every image for free. You are free to purchase prints & products through my online store, or take them anywhere else of your choosing! To see client gallery examples, click here.

Absolutely not! I fully believe in giving you the images you paid for, without all the mess of my brand covering up your family's beautiful face.

Yes! Every single one. I will work my magic on each individual photo to make it beautiful.
