My style:

Though I don’t mind the posed photo where magically everyone is looking at the camera with a posed smile, my mind and heart are tied to the more personal memories that we experience with our loved ones. Capturing the candid moments during a shoot seem to bring out the most emotion and real life quality to an image, which fills my heart and hopefully yours. Some people describe it as documentary style, and that is where I aim to be with your images. If you want the posed shots, older children and adults are better at making this happen, but I cannot guarantee all over success, especially with smaller children and large families. I will capture the loving glances, the laughs at an inside joke, hands being held, a child happily in action, or a loving look at one another. I desire to help you create sincere, honest photographs that pull at your heartstrings. Those are priceless.

Example:

I’m not saying this one is perfect, but hopefully you see the genuine smiles on the boys and the joy on the girl jumping. I just love how she is the only one as the boys look on, but if you were to meet this family, you would learn that she is the biggest jokester of the bunch filled with so much personality. These siblings have a great time with each other, fight like the best of them occasionally – ask their mom – but here we are able to capture a moment of joy with all three. I can’t look at this picture without smiling.
