Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. I mainly photograph weddings and families. I have been shooting over 10 years and as I started out solely as as a wedding photographer, but because many of my clients started having children I added family to my business. Because I do not have a studio, I work on location either at various spots in the Twin Cities area, or in homes of families. This proves to be a great place because kids most often feel the most comfortable in their own spaces and I am able to capture them as they are.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I try to create an experience. A photo session should not be dull and restricted to "stand here, sit there" but it should be about the joy that exists in the relationship being photographed. I try to get the individuals to have fun and enjoy being together in front of the camera.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love capturing the smallest moments that pass by so quickly. I love that there are so many people that allow me into their lives for a period of time, and start as clients and become friends.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Family photos: What should I wear for a session? Avoid the busy patterns, but wear something that expresses your style or your child's style at that time (it could be a pair of rain boots that your 2 year old wears every day!)
Weddings: What is your style? I tend to capture weddings as I do family sessions. It is a glorious occasion and a time to enjoy even the smallest moments (your dad wiping your mom's tears away during the ceremony, your best friend watching you put on your dress, his buddies laughing and his sister crying as you walk down the aisle.)
