I’m so happy you are here. I feel excited about the idea of creating beautiful images for you and your family to treasure and cherish as time passes. I hope we’ll find we are a good fit to work together.
I work in a flexible and relaxed manner, yet I’m very particular about the quality of the final product I present. I collected images with the mindset of telling stories, preserving memories and documenting the interaction between people in an inspiring and beautiful way. I direct the sessions just enough for us to keep the focus and for you to look the best but mostly I conduct our time together with great freedom, spontaneity and joy. My goal is not only to collect a beautiful set of images, but also hold space for people to express themselves and connect with love and authenticity.
After the session, I make a selection of the worth keeping images, do all necessary post processing adjustments, and present an online gallery where you can download the photos in high-resolution, share with your family and friends, as well print.
