[style] My goal is to capture natural expressions while we play in a comfortable setting. This is a great time to sing a favorite song, or play with a favorite toy. I am not looking to create that perfect portrait, life is hardly perfect, I intend to capture your life.
All digital images are shot in color, then presented in a mix of color and black & white.
[location] Sessions can be held at my Downtown Victoria Studio (Off Five Photography Studio & Co-op) or an agreed upon location. I prefer and LOVE taking photos using natural light. If the weather is comfortable outside, a session can be held outdoors in a shaded area of a favorite park or your yard. If the weather is too hot or too cold we can have play time inside using window light either at my studio or your home.
[wear] Keep clothing simple, avoid white and stay away from shirts with large written logos. Have outfits planned, don't be afraid to have a few outfits in mind for us to choose from. Texture shows beautiful in pictures. Some of my favorite looks are layered outfits, bright colors, fun tights, unique hats and bare feet. For babies skin is my preferred outfit, so don't be alarmed if I request your baby in mostly buff shots! If there is more than one child, outfits can be similar, but it's not necessary to have them match.
(a note about newborn sessions... If you would like me to photograph your newborn, please contact me while you are still expecting. It's ideal to shoot newborns within 4-10 days of birth. I love the tiny, sleepy and poseable babies. After this time they start to wake up more and stretch out!. The newborn session will have plenty of time for nursing and cuddling, plan on me spending 2-4 hours with you.)

I am part of this GREAT little photo group that gets together every once in a while
and we've sorta named ourselves The Snappers (hee hee hee, for a few obvious reasons).
Sometimes we scope out locations around the cities for upcoming shoots, but mostly we
just like to hang out and bounce ideas off of each other and talk photography! It's so much
fun to be with such creative spirited ladies who share similar interests!
So some BIG News for 2009
drum roll please..........................the Snappers are going Co-op!
Some of our group are going in and sharing a studio space together. This was a big decision,
since I told myself (& Brian) that I wouldn't even consider moving out of my basement studio
until, at least, our youngest was in school -- but this was just too great of an opportunity to
turn down. We are still in the negotiating stages and getting everything nailed out, but when
we do I will post more info here.
