coming out of hibernation

I **think** I’m coming out of hibernation. Maybe. It is sunny and 50 today so I’m full of vigor. I love the word vigor. Anyhow, we’ll be in various parts of the west coast over the next few months so if you are in need of some kid photos hit me up.

Available dates and locations:

Palm Springs/SoCal: February 15-20
San Francisco/Bay Area: March 24-27 (26th not available).
Denver/Boulder: Potentially late April (20th-ish).
Seattle/Portland/Olympia (i.e. PNW): all the dates in between the above mentioned.

Photo shoot options:

-Mini sessions: 20-ish minutes, outside, 5-10 final downloadable images. Little flexibility or variety but quick and easy.

-Full family sessions: 1.5-2 hours, in your home and/or outside at a spot that means something to you. 25-40 final images. Full family sessions are a bit more candid, flexible and offer a lot of variety. If your kid needs a break, a snack break or time to warm up to me we have the flexibility to give it to him/her. I’ll let you do your thing so things are as natural as we can make it…and we’ll also do some more formal shots. Natural light only and the final images would be a mix of color/black and white. The full sessions I like because they tell more of a story about your life at that time vs crafting a couple nice images in the mini session.

What makes for a good photo? Sharp apparel or lots of mud (depending on the direction of the shoot), awesome lighting, letting your kids be kids, dancing like a puppy monkey baby, rolling with it, stiff drink/s.
