It is my experience, that people see what they believe and their internal self really colors how they see the external world. This is exemplified when looking at photos of the exact same subject, taken by different people. They not only look differently, they feel differently, because they are seen and felt differently by those taking the photos. This is why I believe it is imperative that you resonate with the images, that a photographer takes. If you are not moved by them, if they do not make you feel good, then you have not yet found your photographer. There are so many to choose from, which is wonderful, because then everyone can find their perfect match!
The most important thing, to me, is that I capture you honestly. I believe that is what makes a photograph beautiful and memorable. I want to create photographs, that you will look back on and be able to feel what it was like to be in that moment. I will gently guide our session, when needed, though I am an observer more than a director. We will spend time together as I capture you as you are, which gives you the space to enjoy yourselves and be yourselves and not feel controlled by strict direction. Some really thrive with a lot of direction, and the images that come from it are gorgeous, and there are many photographers who do that very well. I am simply not one of them.
I wear my heart on my sleeve, the little things are what stop me in my tracks, I love connecting with people, even for a brief moment, and I am honored every time I am chosen to capture special memories. These images last lifetimes, they immortalize moments, they allow us to time travel and relive times passed, they are a piece your story.
If you think I may be the one to capture this time for you, please email or call me at 808.446.0446 so we can discuss details and create your customized photo session.
