Let me introduce myself!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to see what i'm all about. So let me tell you a little about me.
Who Am I?
I was born and raised in New Zealand. The land of the Hobbits and really awesome stuff! When i was 18, my whole family moved here for music and for at least 15 years, that is what i did professionally. And while i spent a majority of that time in the studio or supporting other artists on stage, i did get to have my own solo career for a time...under a stage name...that shall remain nameless...LOL! During my college years, i pursued photography as a major and, due to conflicts in course choices, ended up having to switch to a different major. That was back in the film days when you spent 9 hours in the dark room developing your film and images and didn't even realize the time. Good times! So after settling down and having kids, i have picked up my photography again and delighted in the fact that you can instantly see your images as you take them! What a game changer.
What influences my style?
I am a mother of 3 boys aged 7, 5, and 18 mths. I am also an artist, musician and lover of all things creative. I love to eat ethnic foods and have deep conversations with just about anybody. I'm recharged by learning new things and meeting new people. I love the inquisitiveness of children and pure joy they exude. I love being REAL! I love to photograph honestly. That is why i lean toward lifestyle, rather than staged portraits. But i believe there is just as much importance to both. I love to take people going through raw emotions and situations and give them a voice through my images. And i also love to capture the love and innocence of children and their families.
What can you expect in your session with me?
I will either meet with you or talk via phone or message to discuss what you would like your images to say. Whether they are pictures commemorating a special occasion, to keep a record of the major milestones in your family, a campaign to bring awareness to your cause, a head shot for your business, a coming of age portrait for your tween or teen, a new addition to the family, or a portrait of your beloved pet. Whatever your vision is, i am here to make it come to life. Once we have nailed down a concept and a date that works for us both, we will proceed with the session. I have taken a myriad of images of families and understand that in sessions involving children, there is an element of unpredictability. I actually love these challenges, as i have produced some of my best work under difficult circumstances. Whether the children are emotional, tired, bored, cranky, or the conditions are not the best. We will make it work or we will reschedule. After the session, i will edit the images and arrange to meet with you for the reveal.
What will be my investment?
Your session fee is $150. At your reveal session, you will be given options to purchase your images in many wonderful wall pieces, albums, Hi-Res digital images and more. The session fee covers the initial consultation, any travel within the Middle Tennessee area, the session itself, the editing, and the final reveal meeting. The fee does not cover the images themselves. Please click here for additional investment information.
There are so many awesome things to capture as a moment in time, and i would love to be a part of that with you :)
