hope in photographing your child is to capture something timeless
in his or her eyes, and then to use my skill in the digital
darkroom to turn the image into a piece of art for your family.
I normally come to your home because children are more comfortable
in their own space. I will photograph them extensively so

I'll photograph your child over until we have something that
captures your heart.

lives. Some of these sessions are in a park, with time exploring
nature. Sometimes people prefer that I capture daily life
at home, playing outside, bathtime, precious hugs. These sessions
frequently include documentary style portraits. In other words,
we can use the time however you'd like! My base fee includes
up to two hours with your family. Frequently that's more than the kids can tolerate! However, additional hours can be
