Capture the real, honest, sensual you
Want something different from the crowd? You've found it. It's not my interest or style to do the carbon copy "Cougar Candids" most boudoir photographers tend to do nowadays. Never have, never will. I will capture you naturally, beautifully and faithful to your personality. That's just part of what sets me apart from the rest.
The portraits to the right are not of models. They are everyday people who asked if I could capture the natural beauty they hoped they possessed.
You'll also notice these images were not taken in a studio. I only shoot "on location" (whether in their homes or in the great outdoors). Again, it's all about being real and exposing them naturally, organically. These clients are all women who, like you, wanted to see for themselves if they could be photographed in a way that they would treasure and feel proud of. Additionally, all of the photographs to the right are shared here only with their permission. Read their testimonials to see what they thought of their experience photographing with me.
Each and every session is unique, the locations are always brand new (I've yet to shoot in the same location twice), and for the most part none of them are wearing any makeup nor have had their hair done. In fact, I encourage all of my clients to shoot completely natural (though I do agree that mascara is often very helpful). Your own ideas of what you want to do are what I want to help you with, whether you're considering shooting fully clothed, fully not, implied, or simply partially clothed. All of those decisions can be made in advance or on the spot as it's happening. I'm simply here to be your artist and capture the beauty I find in you.
Since beginning my craft in 2000 it seems the genre has taken a turn towards the gaudy cliche of women as sexual objects via overlit studios with lame backdrops and "cut and paste" lingerie. To me, the female form needn't be sexualized to be sensual, as sensuality is it's own beautiful thing. I'm not going to "create" a fantasy by painting you up and putting you in cheesy outfits. Just be yourself, and let's make some amazing art!
How it works
Whether you've decided you want to pursue a shoot with me or are simply doing your research to find the right photographer for your idea, it all starts with an initial contact email.
I have a FAQ page that should answer many of your questions right now, but if after reading it you still have unanswered questions, I do answer each email personally and there is no question I won't hesitate to address.
A meeting in person is the next step. You need to get a feel for me and I need to get an understanding of who you are and what you are hoping for. I don't charge for this face-to-face consultation and consider it a very important part of the process. We'll meet at a location of our mutual choosing, but if it's simply not feasable to meet in person prior to your session, then consultations by phone will work just as well.
If during your consultation you decide you'd like to schedule a session, we can arrange it on the spot. Be prepared to put $100 down as a non-refundable deposit toward your package price to schedule your shoot session. Additionally, sessions that are paid for in full at time of booking get a $50 discount.
By the time we part you'll have all your questions answered and know exactly what to expect during your photo session, even what outfits you might want to bring with you and where we'll be shooting. As for the "where", if you don't want to shoot at your own place, there are plenty of great locations around Cottonwood to choose from. We can even venture out into the desert or mountains if you'd like.
Your session will be conducted on the date and time we've agreed upon and you'll have the final package in your possession within less than 2 weeks. Prints and other after-session products are completely up to you to select from your included proofs CD. I take a LOT of exposures in a LOT of places, angles and outfits, so you'll have not only a wide variety of finished images to enjoy, but a large number of them as well.
