Prints and Products
We live in a time where our family pictures have gone pretty much 100% digital. We take out our phone to show all of our most recent pictures of our growing babies or our latest vacation. Miss those days where we would sit and look at albums? I do! So although you have access to your high resolution images, wouldn't it be nice to see your images in your home?
I work with great professional labs to get your images from your computer and into your home and on your walls. I can absolutely help guide you in your choice of prints, albums or wall decor!
aka the really cute stuff!
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” – Andy Warhol
Events or other FUN STUFF
I can do destinations, baptisms, parties, and more. Scroll through some of my previous events below!
What is Lifestyle photography?Visual Storytelling! I want to capture authentic moments, real-life situations with the pictures I take. Yes, you will have some great family shots where everyone is looking at the camera, but you will also have amazing shots of situations that didn't go to plan! That's what I love! That's what I aim for! I look for emotion, the feelings that you share with the world when you look at each other or hold each other! So let go of that ideal of perfection and just be you! It's the best you there is!
Where do the sessions take place?Wherever you want! I can shoot in the comfort of your own home, outdoors in a park, downtown... My session fee covers the orlando area, but if you need me to go further no problem! Just reach out to me so we can set that up. There is a small fee for the extra miles :)
Do you shoot weddings ?I did! 8 years of wonderful weddings. I met a ton of amazing people and partied it up with the bridal parties, but now I'm dedicated to my families and their ongoing stories. That being said, I do still do destination weddings and small intimate gatherings. Reach out to me and tell me your story to see if we can make things work!
If we take pictures at home how clean does it need to be?This is real life people! Not a Martha Stewart Magazine! I know we always want our house to look like a model home, but let's face it... with kids in the mix, that's nearly impossible! Just try and get anything you wouldn't want in your pictures out of sight... dirty (or clean) laundry, random clutter, nightstands cleared of tissues and/or bottles.... For the rest, these are real life pictures, your life. So don't get all stressed out and go on a cleaning frenzy! You'll be just fine!
How do I find the best photographer near me?Well, finding that "best" photographer is completely subjective. It's completely different for each family... and the possibilities are endless. There are multiple things to consider before making your choice. While pricing often plays an important role in the decision process, it shouldn't be the only factor in choosing your "best" family photographer. - First, know what style you are looking for. Explore photographer's websites and Instagrams to get a feel for what you love! - Determine your budget! Although well establised family photographers will all be around the same price, some are just getting started and offer sessions for a lot less to build their portfolio. If you are on a budget, there are those options for you. Check to see what each photographer includes in their packages (limited or unlimited digital) to get a better idea of what it will cost you and compare to what you are willing to spend for your photoshoot. - Know what you are getting! Instagram will show you a couple of pictures from a session (probably the best ones), ask to see a full gallery to determine if what they offer is what you are - looking for (emotion, editing style, light..) - Talk to the photographer and ask questions to see if they are a good fit for you!
Where do you usually shoot your sessions?Depending on what collection you choose or decide to add on... anywhere! My collection 1 is for the Winter Garden / Windermere area whereas my collection 2 is for the greater Orlando area (Celebration, Clermont, Winter Park, Orlando). I have a Location add-on also that let's you be a little more free in the choice of your location. So if you want a beach session at Cocoa Beach, that is totally possible also.
Do you have a favorite location?I love discovering new areas for each session, but I have come across a couple of great locations for my outdoor family photoshoots! Celebration has a mix of locations all close together. We can get that town/city vibe but then find a little square lined with beautiful trees to capture a beautiful family session. Winter Garden is an amazing Urban feel for those families who don't want to trek through the florida nature! It's a great option also for mid-day shoots because we get some shade from the buildings. Clermont: home to Lake Louisa State park has beautiful fields, nature trails and a beach that allows for a couple different looks in one area. This place is super popular among family photographers so don't be surprised to see other photographers at the same time :) Winter Park also has that urban feel all while keeping nature a big part of the scenery. There are different parks around Winter Park and downtown that are also great for photoshoots (Leu Gardens... $15 entrance fee, Mead Gardens, Azalea Park, Baldwin Park, Rollins College... the choices are endless) Winderemere and it's oak trees and neverending lakes with that small town feel is just super beautiful as well. Perfect for those half sessions, we'll find a perfectly beautiful spot for your family photos There are choices also for indoor shoots. First and foremost, your home! A great place for everyone to feel comfortable and capture your family just the way you are. Other indoor options are natural light studios like the Brand Studio in Longwood. There is a fee to rent out the studio but it is a great option for small families and newborn sessions.
