Storytelling Portraits

Personalized photography for your collateral materials,
newsletters, websites, and simply celebrating where you are in life. 

How do I create your storytelling portrait? 

First of all I listen and pay attention to what is important to you and  I enjoy brainstorming with you to feel the thread that you wish to manifest into your unfolding photographic story. Does the visual photography and imagery reflect the story being told?  Whether you desire that one image that really reflects your story, or a number of images which are created to present a composite of your full story;  for your website or book, I love the full circle process and opportunity to emphasize your vision, which then weaves with the written word and dynamic photographic images to bring your vision full circle.  For... a picture is worth a thousand words.

When I create with publications, I will always pre-visualize images in my photographers eye and then when I get to the location or talk to the person I am creating the story about, my vision may change to reflect the richer essence of that person or place. It's really the heart and the spirit of the person I'm intending to capture and that story has a way of letting me know how it wants to be reflected.

When I work closely with a writer, I find the story may take on a life of its own. If it's a place you want to entice people to visit or an interesting person who needs to have their story told and shown, it is my aim to capture that story through photography,  as a rich tapestry of experience.

As a professional photographer, I provide quality, dynamic imagery in my photography and meet completion dates.  I love the creative process and because I listen to you, and desire your voice and personality to shine through, the images reflect your intent and story.
