I'm a lifestyle family photographer, which means yes, I will get the photo of you all looking and smiling at the camera, but what I really want to capture is that intangible dynamic that makes each family so uniquely beautiful. I want the looks, the snuggles, the hugs, the kisses, the giggles. And when you look at that image years from now, I want you to remember the sound of their laughter and the feel of their small hands in yours. My goal as a photographer is to capture the images that will stay with you long after you've stopped looking at them.
For more information about what to expect during your session, see this article, as it describes what I'm trying to accomplish behind the lens and how you as parents can work with me to create the images that are So You!
For event photography, I bring some of my coordinated family lifestyle approach to your event portraiture, and once those images have been captured, my approach is to interfere as little as possible. I'm an observer, and am quick to the draw when those key moments and connections happen. This is best described by my favorite t-shirt, which says, "I can freeze time, what's your superpower?"

what to wear
It's not 1985. Please do not wear white t-shirts and jeans. The current trend for family photos is to dress coordinated, but not too matchy-matchy. Mixing and matching a few key colors on top and bottom, with some accent colors in clothing, shoes, or accessories looks great. If you do decide to shop for some new outfits for your family session, I always advise my subjects to stay true to So You; just your most photogenic version of you!
