WHAT TO EXPECT
You've scrolled Pinterest for, what seems like, an eternity for the perfect portrait inspiration and now it's time to find someone to bring that dream to life! (I'm obsessed with Pinterest too)
From the moment you send me an inquiry, my goal is to make that Pinned dream come true only better because it'll have the emotion of the ones you love in them. I'll provide all of the information you need from what to where to where to go. During your pre-consultation, we'll get to know each other and discuss your vision. By the end, we just might be best friends chatting over french fries and ice cream shakes.

A NOTE FROM CRYSTAL:
I never get enough of Claudia and her family. They never shy away from those moments of connection and fun! Every session is full of laughs and love.
WHERE TO GO
Choosing A Location
So much of your story is born at home so why shouldn't your portraits reflect that? I love lifestyle sessions that take place in your home because they're much more true to life than if the session takes place somewhere else. You'd have a curated memories of cookies baked in your kitchen, storytime in your child's bed, and spontaneous living room cuddles.
Of course, for those instances where you want to venture beyond your home, I am willing to venture as far as you'd like! I have a selection of my favorite spots but I am always open to experiencing a new favorite.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What type of photographer are you?
I am a lifestyle photographer - I place value on capturing your and your loved ones in such a way that you become the work of art and your photos tell a story. My goal is to capture those moments with genuine smiles and a radiant joy that you'll treasure for years to come. Lifestyle sessions are unique because they capture even more of the connection between you and your family. You should expect that everyone will have a little more freedom to roam and showcase their personalities and interests - little girls will twirl and dance, boys can run, babies can snuggle with mom and dad, and other ways you show love and joy with your family.
I'm also a natural light photographer aka a sun-chaser! The orange or blue tint of florescent lights are just not my jam. You session will either wake you up with the sun, or send you to a family dinner after sunset!
