The lowdown...

From the first email, to mailing out your prints and album at the Post Office... it's done by me. You always get me. I’m there with you for the planning process to keeping everybody excited at the session.

If my approach and style of photography really speaks to you, let's get to emailing and get your session on my calendar! This is going to be fun.

Relax… I’ve got these memories captured for you. 

Don’t stress about the stain on their shirt, let the kids run around…
let them be a little wild.

Enjoy this time together. Really, really enjoy this time.

“Oh my Ryan!!! These are so lovely! I was headed to bed and Bret and I got to stay up and look at them together! ...the squirrel photos have us laughing hysterically! We love that you captured that moment. Owen is going to love looking back at it! The only problem now is... there are so many great ones to choose from!”

Questions? I have answers.

Always an email away if you still need anything else!

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

I take a photojournalistic approach, focusing on the candid moments. Upon arrival to your session, I take an extra moment to get you relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera (I know, it can be scary!). I am hands off most of the time, but direct when needed (like when you ask me, "what do I do with my hands!?").

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I RECEIVE?

I deliver 35+ images for a typical photo session, but there are no limits! If there are a ton of good photos, I won't keep them hostage from you.

DO YOU HAVE BACKUP GEAR?

Yes, I always bring a backup camera body in addition to the one I use at your session. I always shoot on cameras with two memory card slots in each for added backup. In simpler terms... I take your images seriously.

How do we book you?

I require a 50% non-refundable retainer to reserve your session date + time at the signing of your contract. From there, it's off to planning the best session yet!

CAN WE GET AN ALBUM PHOTOS FROM OUR SESSION?

Of course! My heirloom albums are designed in-house and manufactured through a professional print lab in the style of traditional bookmakers. All albums are customized to your liking.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

First off, I want to make sure you're feeling 100% confident for your photo session! I recommend sticking with what you FEEL comfortable in. There are no rules other than trying to avoid neon colors and baggy shirts.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS?

I'm primarily a wedding photographer, but I started in the world of photography by photographing high school seniors and families over six years ago. During that time, I have perfected everything... right down to making sure there's always a sewing kit and Tide Pen in my camera bag JUST in case. It's been an amazing ride!

CAN WE GET A USB OF OUR IMAGES?

Yes, I offer custom made professional-grade USB Backup thumb drives. They're handmade from fallen trees. They're something you won't want to hide in a drawer and forget about!

I book a limited number of family and portrait sessions a year so it's never too early to inquire!

I know, I also wish I could clone myself and photograph all of the things!
