IT’S ABOUT YOU: I love portrait photography, and especially love working with people. I offer a lifestyle photography that’s fresh, modern and classic. I shoot in my studio quite often, but I also love shooting on location. There are so many great places to shoot that match who you are! Shelby Farms, Collierville Square, The Main Street Art District, The Mississippi Riverfront, and so many more great locations around the city. Each session is customized to fit your lifestyle!
ITS ABOUT PERSONALITY: I like to find out who you are, and what you like to do. I want your photos to show you having fun, or being serious, but looking your very best. I’ve helped individuals get amazing portraits by just having fun, relaxing, and being at ease with the camera. I offer a blend of photojournalistic photography and lifestyle photography. It’s not so posed and stiff like the old school studios.
IT’S ABOUT FUN:I like to spend at least 45 minutes to an hour with you and give you a good selection of shots. Have some fun, bring a change of clothes, and be inventive. I’ll offer posing suggestions, and help you find your best camera angle. I want you to end up having a good time and accomplish getting some great portraits that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
