I AM ON A MISSION. I WANT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT HELP PEOPLE ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING. YOU’RE SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY FACE!
My favorite thing about photographing children is their complete lack of inhibition. They are not worried about how they will look in their photos or what others think of them. Every kid who has requested to see his/her own picture in the back of my camera has loved how they looked in it. They are free from that internal criticism we adults fall prey to.
What happens to that carefree child? As we grow up, we learn to be critical of every part of ourselves that deviates from some average/norm. We become self-conscious.
Society teaches us that our value is dependent on our outward appearance.
But that is just not true!
I want to help people break free from this belief and begin to live their true purpose.
It pains me to meet so many people who are trying to accomplish something but are terrified of being seen in photographs. How can you get your name out there if you are hiding?
Women in particular have a tough time, struggling with the need to look small, meek, submissive, slender, professional, pretty, flirty, non-threatening, and/or sexy in pictures. What we need is to see more women looking POWERFUL in their pictures. How can we expect to see more women in positions of leadership when the pictures we see of women portray them in such a powerless manner?
My goal is to photograph people in an authentic way. To show their personality, their power, their confidence, their creativity, their kindness, their fearlessness, and their love. I want to photograph real people – not models. My specialty is bringing out the natural beauty in my subjects – that winning smile, those happy eye crinkles, the dimple in your cheeks, the twinkle of the eye, the sassy tilt of your shoulders – everybody has some beauty in them.
I want to take pictures that will help you achieve something amazing, whether your goal is building an audience, growing a business, running for office, or championing a cause.
If that’s you, then let’s chat.
