I lived many lives before I became a professional photographer. My most recent transition was leaving medical school to become a professional photographer and artist. It's a long story. But mostly, there are just too many parts of me to contain and I'm highly skilled in the art of transition and transformation. So whether you're enriching your life or moving in a different direction, I'm your girl.

So many of my clients experience this (as do I)! First, I have deep empathy for this experience. I totally freeze in front of the camera. Some clients find that practicing facial expressions in the mirror beforehand helps them conceptualize how different expressions may feel and look. But in truth, it is my job to make you feel comfortable and seen. I will direct you and pose you, move stray hairs off your face, tell you when to sit up straighter, and find the angles that are best for you. I will talk to you if you’re nervous, offer you white wine or tea, and make you forget there’s a camera. All you need to do is show up!
First, fill out my contact form. I'll get back to you write away. We'll discuss what you're looking for, I'll give you a quote, and we'll identify a date and time. Then I'll send you a contract and an appointment confirmation. You'll leave a credit card number to reserve your slot. I'll send you a style guide specific to your shoot. I also offer complementary phone consultations before your session where I will review expectations, share advice and answer any questions you have.
I generally advise allowing up to 6 weeks between your shoot and the delivery of final photos. I offer expedited services at an additional fee that varies depending upon your package.
I use Photoshop tastefully. I use it for brightening, for optimizing contrast and color balance, and for addressing imperfections. Of course I prefer to perfect a photo when I'm taking it, but yes--I can zap that pimple. Or those (few) stray hairs. Or blur out the words on that sign. I use careful, meticulous Photoshop techniques that preserve the texture and sincerity of your shoot.
I use both natural and/or studio light. I tailor my lighting approach to the conditions I'm entering.
