FAQ

What is your style of photography?

As an emotive storyteller, my sessions are geared towards lifestyle/documentary style imagery. My art is about capturing moments with connection, emotion, and is raw and authentic. While I will make sure to get at least one portrait style image with you looking, smiling and posing for the camera, the majority of your session will be lifestyle/documentary style. Your gallery will have a variety of images such as far away, up close, detail, etc. This is the style that lights a creative fire within me and is my passion!
