I photograph headshots, lifestyle/editorial style portraits of families, maternity, kids, and engagements.
I also photograph weddings and have ten years of experience as a wedding photographer.
I no longer photograph newborn sessions, though I'm very happy to recommend talented people who specialize in those types of photography!
Well, I just moved to Georgia from South Florida, where I ran my photography business for ten years! In Florida, we shoot at the beach, so I do have a lot of beach photos in my portfolio. I absolutely love the scenery here in Georgia, though, and I'm looking forward to increasing the number of "non tropical" images in my portfolio.
To help you get the most out of your session, I'll help you plan your wardrobe. I usually recommend choosing the kids' outfits first (or for couples, choosing one person's outfit), then moving along to find outfits for the other family members. You definitely don't want anything matchy-matchy (I don't shoot sessions with everyone wearing jeans and a white t-shirt), but you rather want to select a color scheme and run with that! I'm not afraid of patterns, bold colors, and accessories. In fact, they make my job a lot more fun! Before the session, you'll definitely be sending me pictures of your wardrobe so that I can make sure they photograph well and give you feedback. If what you've picked out doesn't work, I'll let you know and give you suggestions so that you all will look your best on the day of the portrait shoot!
It certainly doesn't hurt! A professional makeup artist will know how to do your makeup so that you look best for the camera and be able to style your hair so that it doesn't frizz up the second you step outside - that's their job! I'm happy to give you some recommendations based on where you live. For your wedding, I 100% recommend hiring a makeup artist/hair stylist. This is a day that you can only do once, and you want to look your absolute best!
I'm based in the northeast suburbs of Atlanta and generally service the following areas within 25 miles of ZIP code 30041, without any additional fees: Cumming, Alpharetta, Milton, Duluth, Suwanee, Johns Creek, Roswell, Gainesville, Peachtree Corners, Norcross, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Brookhaven, and more. If you would like me to photograph you or your family outside my service area, please let me know. There is a small travel fee to cover other locations. Or, you can come to me - we have some gorgeous locations to work with here in Forsyth and Fulton County!
All session fees are collected by check at this time (credit cards coming soon). Your payment must be received within 5 (five) business days of signing your portrait agreement. For weddings, a retainer is collected upon booking to reserve your wedding date, with the remaining balance collected 60 days prior to the wedding.
Note: I am required by law to collect tax on all payments.
