Where are you based?
I live in Overland Park, KS but service all of the Kansas City area.
Do you have a studio?
Yes! My studio is located in the historic west bottoms.
What type of sessions do you photograph?
I love photographing all genres but my main goal is to book sessions I know I can confidently capture genuine connection and create art that moves my heart and soul. My primary focus is currently maternity, newborns, children, seniors, couples and families. Unfortunately, I’m not booking weddings, events (baby showers, birthday parties, etc.), head-shots or extended family sessions at this time.
Whats your style?
I don’t know that I can use just one word to describe my style of work but Im passionate about telling a story (your story) through my work. Capturing the moments and details you never want to forget. The best moments with clients are the more natural, candid moments. Freezing time as you laugh, play, flirt, love, feel..
When do you schedule sessions?
Outdoor sessions I typically schedule on the weekends an hour or so before the sunsets. This is when lighting is best. The sun is low, soft and luminous. Studio sessions are scheduled on the weekends between 9AM-4PM. Newborn sessions are scheduled M-F mornings.
What locations do you use?
I have suggestions for locations based on the style session you’re trying to achieve. Are you interested in nature/park, country/fields or urban/downtown? Perhaps somewhere different such as a apple orchard, greenhouse or tree farm? Once thats decided I have several spots to recommend on both the KS and MO side.
Can I print my images myself?
Yes. All my sessions include edited/retouched images + print release via digital download. You also have the ability to order professional prints directly from your online gallery.
