Let’s be honest, getting your photos taken can be super intimidating, especially when you are not used to it. THAT’S WHERE I COME IN! I want to capture those real, candid, and authentic moments. Whether it’s cracking a joke or asking questions to get to know you better, I want to create a comfortable and carefree space for you to be yourself! I have worked with many clients who don’t enjoy getting their photos taken, but after hanging out with me they LOVE IT! This could be YOU!!!
