Growing up I always had an interest in creating and documenting life. My creativity grew even more when I moved to Brazil with my husband and started documenting our life with my camera. As we became parents to a beautiful baby girl, I filled my days capturing her life on film and digitally for her grandparents to enjoy since they lived 1000's of miles away. As other people saw my photos they began to ask me to take pictures of their kids and my love for photography developed into a dream of having my own photography business.
I began reading books, forums, and any workbooks I could get my hands on to understand photography and how to get out of "auto" on my camera. I developed a love for creating photos that capture the personality of my client - whether its a senior, a pregnant mom, or an entire family.
I am a natural light portrait photographer in the York, Pennsylvania area. I am also a wife and mother...which is my first priority and privilege. I enjoy decorating, creating, sipping coffee and spending time with my family.
Senior sessions are usually my favorites! I love to get to know what each senior is pursuing, what they're involved in at school, what their likes are, etc. and then style a shoot around those ideas. I encourage them to bring 3-4 outfits to the session so we get a good variation of casual, sports, and dressier looks. Sessions usually last 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
Maternity sessions are usually held in the last trimester of your pregnancy. I prefer to hold them outdoors in a quiet setting. I encourage clients to bring props that are special to them (baby booties, stuffed animal, little baby clothes) if they want them included in their photos.
Newborn sessions are held in the first 7-10 days after the baby is born. That's when they're usually very swishy, posable and sleepy. Sessions are held in my home and usually last 2-2 1/2 hours depending on baby's schedule.
Family sessions are a lot of fun! I take my time to make your kids feel comfortable and relaxed. I prefer to work with smaller groups, so my Family session price is for up to 6 people. Extra people are an additional $10/person.
