I am an on-location photographer. All that means is that I do not have a studio space. I know, in our dreary PNW weather can be a challenge, but one I am always up for. What this also means is that your shoot will never look like anyone else’s shoot. I also encourage all my clients to bring special items to incorporate into their shoot to help make it their own. I will, depending on the shoot and location bring along some props, seating, blankets, backdrops, and even full studio lighting should we have power available.
I have always enjoyed photography. I worked in film, for the yearbook and the newspaper through college, but then never made the switch to Digital sure to the cost. But after having my son, and not being able to afford to get more than maybe one or two images from the big box store photography studios, and going back to school for graphic design, I revisited the craft. I remembered how much I LOVED capturing moments in time. How I loved capturing candid interactions between loved ones, the challenge of finding the light.
So, I started photographing everything, my preschool aged son, my newborn daughter, a friends wedding. Finally I figured, there must be others out there like me. People who WANTED quality images of their loved ones, of their special day, but who didn’t have, or didn’t WANT to spend a fortune on them. I’m not in this to get rich…I don’t want to be the most acclaimed photographer. I work for my clients, not the critics. My goal, is to build a relationship with you, and learn your personality, and quirks. I do so, in order to be able to capture your unique personality on “film”.
Also, because I’m aware that you don’t want to chose. With every shoot, I give you every usable image, sized to 5×7, edited, in color and in Black & White, in print and for the web…you get all this via a file transfer. As well as a print release so you can print where ever you would like. I do offer prints, for that one “wall hanger” that you want blown up or in super high quality. While I am more expensive than say, Walmart, or Fred Meyer, I’m not nearly as expensive as most Pro labs.
