Photography is art, and a good photograph is far more than technically ideal.
I’ve spent years taking pictures of places I’ve been. Whether on a mountain trail here in Colorado or while traveling in Scotland, Italy, Mexico or my own backyard, I’m captivated by ordinary objects, the way light falls upon someone’s face and the challenge to capture the mood of a place or the essence of a human being.
We are all unique both in appearance and in personality. Are you silly, shy or gregarious? Together, we will create a portrait that tells the story of you.
Whether I am taking a picture of you in your garden or in your home creating art from your most-loved objects, I want to do more than take a good picture; I want to provide a memory and meaning.
Because I believe a portrait involves far more than good photography skills, I like to chat with my subjects before we meet. My goal is to get to know you a little bit before I start shooting. We’ll talk about potential outfits, some basic elements you might want to have on hand and decide on a location and time.
I bring the camera, you bring your beautiful and unique self and together we will create magic.
This is a session where the focus is on YOU and you alone! You will have an opportunity to make outfit changes and we will work in a variety of settings in our chosen location. Most sessions take at least an hour. Sitting fee is $175 with at least ten images for you to choose from. Prints and digital images are at additional cost.
Mini-Portrait sessions (sometimes called ‘Porchtraits’) are quick photo shoots of one person that last roughly 20 minutes. You get at least 3 images to choose from and the session can be in your back yard or on your front porch. Sitting fee is $75; digital image at additional cost. This is a great option if you need to update a website image or need a headshot
Family portraits can last up to 90 minutes, and can include a number of family members. I work with you creating a setting that is organic versus posed. This is perfect for introducing that new family member or creating a beautiful generational memory. Cost is $250 and you receive at least ten images to choose from. Prints and digital images at additional cost.
Your Items as Fine Art
Creating fine art from your most-loved objects can include multiple items and usually takes an hour to get the shot just right. I can come to your home (necessary if you want to capture a plant in bloom!) or you can bring your item to me. Fee for this session is $125 with prints and digital images at an additional cost.
We can shoot in your backyard, on your front porch or inside your home, or I can suggest a lovely public place. Most sessions are scheduled early in the morning or late in the afternoon to take advantage of the natural light. Beginning in Fall 2020, I hope to be able to offer my studio and garden as an additional option to tell your story.
My style lends itself best to nature and natural light, so if you prefer a space inside your home, I would ask to visit your space prior to our session so that we can take best advantage of your interior.
Photographers each have a unique style and I would encourage you to browse my portfolio before we contract to work together to make sure my style suits your desire.
In addition to being a working photographer, I am also a writer and Podcast host. I invite you to visit Our Stories Today if you are curious about the stories of women after the age of 50. The Podcast “WomenWordsWisdom“ also shares the stories we women have to tell as we enter older age. Have a listen to the audio below and get a glimpse of what I see when I shoot women 50 and above.
