​I aim to capture things as they happen naturally. I’ll join in the conversation and make the occasional comment (I also bring the humor) to help you feel more comfortable when the camera it pointed your way. I stay in tune to the mood and how people are feeling in the moment.

The expressions, the momentary looks, the real interactions between people; these are the things that matter most. I want you to act naturally and just be you, but I’ll give you a little direction if it’s needed, which is usually something like ‘Walk over there and pretend I’m not here.”.

I’m happy to jump in the mix, share a laugh, join in the conversation, and chat with your grandma. I won’t ruin your genuine moments for the sake of a photo. I know when to give people space and when to jump into the action. It’s all about finding that balance between you creating memories for yourself and me capturing them.
