Welcome. Please make yourself at home.
" I am an in the moment photographer. I believe photography is art. I love to capture authentic connection. I will spend hours with you during a session asking you to tell me your stories and corniest jokes. I've been the photographer running backwards in the mud, while playfully being chased by a toddler; as well as the photographer quietly capturing the tears of a homeless mother, receiving a gift for her child.
I'm not the photographer who's going to tell you to smile nor to dress in matching outfits. It's not important to me if you're posed in the center of the frame smiling directly at the camera. What is important to me is your story, and personal connections. I am the photographer who will encourage you to be yourself. To interact with your surroundings and others in the frame.
That's because these aren't your perfectly posed photo sessions...this is real life. I strive to capture the types of moments memories are made of. " - Chay Hastings
