All my sessions are unlimited looks. So. BRING THE WHOLE CLOSET! Pack those big rolling suitcases and schlep it in here. We’ll peel through your stuff and build looks first thing. Bring the stuff buried in the back, those outfits you haven’t had a chance or excuse to wear. THIS is the excuse! Bring the weird stuff. The floral, the geometric, the low cut, the turtleneck, the lacy, the ruffled, the old ripped, the new with tags, the hats, the scarves, the jackets, the heels, the tank tops, the tube tops, the crop tops. Make sure it makes you feel sexy, or silly, or flashy, or fun. Show off all that arm and leg day work. Whatever else you bring, please be sure to pack a few staples: a basic black option and a basic white option.
HAIR & MAKEUP
I ask that my clients arrive “camera ready” on the day. I don’t have a dedicated hair or makeup artist on staff, but i freelance with lots of them. If you wanna get all gussied up before your shoot I’ll happily pass their information on and let you guys sort out the schedule.
I strive to provide an affordable, easygoing, high energy, too many laughs photo session. We can't get something great if you're worried about getting it!
Come on over, we'll shoot in the studio. Or go play in the California sunshine, OR both! It really depends what you want! During your session, we'll take a few breathers, and take a look at the stuff we're getting on the big screen, This allows us to make micro adjustments, and shows you the stuff you're going to walk away with. I pride myself on keeping my sessions fun, affordable, energetic, and way more than satisfactory. There's always music, iced coffee, cocktails, and self deprecating stories. We have a good time!
This story starts on the prairie. Not Laura Ingles Wilder style precisely, but in a nice little subdivision in North East Kansas. I grew up in a family of comedian storytellers. None professionally so, but every family gathering ended with side splitting stories from everybody. I stayed close to home and got a Bachelor's Degree in Acting, and a Master's Degree in Directing. I seriously picked up a camera in college, and began the long and arduous task of teaching myself how it worked. I was studying in the Theater Department, and I needed subjects. Ipso facto, I shot a lot of actor headshots...and so it's been since 2009.
After grad school I moved to NYC. I worked for a well known off-broadway theater company as a carpenter, stagehand, and special effects technician, and on the side I studied that camera. I honed my eye, and kept shooting a lot of headshots.
In 2016 I left NYC. I packed up my car and followed the call of 'Manifest Destiny.' 3000 miles later I set up shop in Los Angeles. I'm still here! I'm still shooting a lot of headshots. And now, I shoot a lot MORE editorial and lifestyle shots. Content! Content! Content! I'm also producing documentary television, I'm directing original material, and I'm still swinging a hammer if the situation calls for it.
