Here are some common questions and answers to help explain my details and policies.
Q. What kind of photography style do you have?
My style is a bit earthy, a bit ethereal and very emotive. I prefer natural, ambient light and rarely use flash unless necessary.
Yes. I have a beautiful ambient studio in downtown Goshen for my Mariposa/boudoir sessions. I also meet prospective brides and grooms there for bridal consultations.
Q. How long have you been photographing?
I started photographing with intent over 15 years ago. After my sister died I knew I needed to follow my heart - as life is short - so in May of 2010 it became my only full-time occupation and no longer a hobby/side job. I am SO glad I took the leap. I left a great background in Graphic Design, many years of Marketing - but I have never looked back. This is where I am meant to be.

Q. What is most important to you as a photographer?
#1. That I stay true to an art form of personal expression and not deviate from it to make my image similar to someone else's. #2 That in the pursuit of expressing my own personal art form through photography - I make you extremely happy with the end results. I don't just want to take your photos and have you walk away thinking I'm just another photographer with a fancy camera - one that will hardly say two words to you. I'll probably chat away with you like an old friend... and in the end? - We'll probably feel like we're old friends, so if you are not ok with social butterflies like myself ... I just might annoy you. I love people and my effort to know you is genuine. I like to be authentic and likewise I like authentic people.
