I travel light with a Fuji X-E2, 35mm f/1.4, and a 50-140mm f/2.8, and a few other gadgets.
My 35mm is my baby! I just love the natural, flattering perspective it gives for portraits.
An intimate wedding in the redwoods of Northern California, or in Alaska! I love an adventurous couple who knows their day is all about the vows they're exchanging. I love details that have meaning for my couples and were thoughtfully curated. There's nothing more romantic than a unique, beautiful, and remote location.
My husband and I road trip to a new national park each year for our anniversary. Yellowstone was our last stop and I still can't stop dreaming about that place!
I could never keep track of how much I laugh! I love to laugh and do it often! I'm sure it was maybe something my husband said or something silly that one of my dogs did.
I wish I could choose a few moments here. I think the moment that pursuing photography really clicked for me was early on in my career when I received a card from a client who's portraits I had just photographed. She wrote about how she cried when viewing her images because she had never seen herself in such a feminine and beautiful manner before and that my images had changed the way she saw herself. It was such a powerful moment for me and delivering images to my clients is still my favorite part of this beautiful job.
My favorite image is the one that greets clients to my website. There's nothing super extraordinary about the shot, but what I do love about it is the emotion of these two people. I love reliving that moment every time I look at that image.
I think it's easy to say that my gear or my natural eye are what make me different, but that's a given. Each photographer sees things through the lens a little differently. Although I shoot digital, my goal is always to give that organic feeling of film, and I've found most people never suspect it's not film!
For me it's all about creating an experience for my clients. I think being thoughtful and genuine goes a long way and I'm so lucky to be in a profession where it's easy for me to show my gratitude to my clients. I treasure my clients and I want them to trust me and feel connected to me and my work.
Finding the La Rousse box has been one of the best additions to my marketing. When I received my own wedding images I was disappointed to receive a USB drive in a padded manilla envelope with no note. I still remember how deflated I felt after searching high and low for the perfect photographer. I vowed then that my clients would receive a better experience.
I use the La Rousse box with the perfume drive for all of my clients because I want them to know how valued they are through and through. I love how feminine and clean the box feels when delivering to my clients and I love the idea that this box can evolve into something else in their home one day, like a jewelry box for her. La Rousse boxes are the perfect way to thank my clients at the end of our extraordinary journey together.
