1) What services do you offer clients?
Currently offering headshots, lifestyle, and portrait photography services.
2) What makes your work a stand out in the Southeast?
Starting out in front of the camera has given me a tremendous advantage behind the camera. Also, I am HUGE on collaboration. I love client input -- I feel the best headshots are a result of a team effort :). I know every artist works differently and I feel it is my job to make our photo session as comfortable and effortless as possible.
3) What is the best backdrop or shoot location for you?
I prefer to shoot natural light for all headshots! I am constantly seeking cool and interesting backgrounds to keep things fresh in my work while looking for locations that really compliment my subject and help to achieve the "look" we are going for.
4) What do actors need to do to make a really great headshot session?
Achieving a really great headshot is a very subjective thing -- I don't believe there is one size/method/formula fits all. I think being comfortable with the photographer you choose and perhaps being specific about any like/dislikes you may have can be very helpful. Also! Overthinking it. I try to encourage my clients to simply "be" and allow me to capture those moments (rather than trying to "show" intensity and emotion).
5) How long have you been operating?
2018 marks my 10th year as a professional photographer! Wow. Super grateful.
