During each photo session, I shoot a mix of posed and candid portraits to provide different perspectives and capture as many details as I can. If you feel nervous about having portraits taken, please don't worry! I have no expectations of you other than to show up and be yourself. I'll provide guidance on posing and placement. If you have questions about what to wear or bring, I am happy to help with that too. My goal is for you to feel safe, relaxed, and comfortable during a photo session with me, so we can work together to create photos you're happy with. If you have any concerns or questions, or need special accommodations, please reach out. I would love to talk with you.
Every session I shoot is different - I don't go by any sort of guidelines for portrait sessions. My focus is on what's important to you. So whether you want portraits with your pets, in your workspace, focused on a particular article of clothing, or at a location that holds significance to you, I'm totally down. Whatever it may be, I'm excited to help you document this important part of your life.
All are welcome. I am happy to work with people of any race, background, culture, disability status, or identity. Please reach out to let me know if there is anything I can do to be accommodating to you.

Frequently Asked Questions
When is payment due?
Half of payment is due on the day of the shoot, and half on delivery of digital files. If it's more convenient for you, you can pay the entire amount up front.
Where are you located?
I'm based in Port Orchard, Washington. I will travel anywhere between Poulsbo and Gig Harbor for photo sessions. If you want to do a photo session outside of this area, please contact me to see if we can work something out, whether it's a small travel fee or meeting halfway.
When will I get my photos?
You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 14 days. Within the gallery, you will be able to download high-resolution files and order prints. I can provide 48-hour turnaround for an additional fee.
Do you have an indoor studio?
I do not. I typically shoot in public locations or in clients' homes. If you prefer to rent a studio for your session, let me know, and I will give you some options and rates for studios in the area.
