five w's about me
Who am I? I'm a wife and a mother. I'm a mom to two beautiful kids. No kidding, they are the most beautiful kids in the whole wide world. Although, their behavior is sometimes questionable. My husband is ok, too. Depends on the day, really.
Who are my clients? Mostly families in Columbus, Ohio and the surrounding suburbs. While I've done a few small weddings, I mostly concentrate on families. I don't have the equipment or the vision to do a wedding properly. I can definitely recommend someone!

I try to focus on capturing the personalities of everyone in the family. I really really prefer for the shoot to feel like we’re just hanging out. When we first meet up, I just start talking away and have us take a stroll to a good spot. While we chat, I try to scope out some good locations and mostly get a feel for who you are as a family. The slow start helps everyone get out some nervous energy and start to relax a bit.
My goal is to get candids that really show how you are as people and as a family. I do know the importance of the posed shots so those are always included in the sessions.
Let’s figure out a location together. If the weather is nice, I prefer outside. There are so many options around Columbus. You’re not limited to just the parks. Let me know about your style. I have suggestions and would love to hear your thoughts, too!
Now! Just kidding. There are certain times of the year that get booked faster. I usually book up about 1-2 months ahead of time. Unless, we’re talking autumn. My fall pics book up about 2-3 months ahead of time. I sometimes book those a year ahead.
Life is short. Every moment is wonderful whether you’re 10 pounds heavier then you want to be or someone just lost a tooth.
