the light is all Photography Welcome to The Light Is All Photography!
I aim to create fun, creative, and high quality portraits. Thanks for your interest!

Let's start by answering a few questions:

  1. What do you want to photograph? I shoot both portraits and events in a variety of styles ranging from candid and editorial to posed portraits and artistic fine art images. I have experience with portrait, family, senior, child, maternity, glamour, and event photography, and am comfortable working with any race, gender, sexual orientation, and body type. My goal is to capture compelling and beautiful images no matter who you are!
     
  2. Where would you like to be photographed? Portraits may be made in your home, at a location special to you, or in a natural setting. I have my own studio lights and can travel to your home or a location of your choice. I also enjoy natural light photo shoots, both indoors and outside.
     
  3. What end product are you looking for? Will this be a family portrait hung over the mantle, a collection of photos from your daughter's baptism that will go into a scrapbook, or an artistic fine art figure study of your pregnancy to put on the wall of your bedroom? I work with professional photography service MPix.com to produce high quality prints suitable for framing. Custom styles like canvas gallery wraps and borderless standouts are also available, or you can have your favorite image printed on a coffee mug or note card.

 
Time

Most photo sessions last about an hour. You are welcome to bring several different outfits, and any props that are meaningful to you—a violin, some flowers, a pet, your favorite teddy bear. Bring some music on your iPod to listen to during the shoot, if you like. Friends or partners are welcome, too. Our session will be low key but fun. I aim to create a safe environment where you can feel free to be yourself. Come prepared to show your personality!
 

Senior portraits

I love shooting senior portraits! We can shoot indoors, outdoors, or a combination of the two, with as many changes of clothing and scenery as you can fit into your time. I don't do makeup or hair, so bring a friend who knows how to help you look your best, but leave to me the job of capturing you in your best light!
 

Event portraits

Consider setting up a "photo booth" at your event for fun portraits of guests! Check out my events page for more information.
 

Delivery

I edit every photo individually, adjusting tone, color, and exposure to achieve the highest quality possible. This usually takes about a week, or sometimes longer for more extensive photo sessions. You can expect at least twenty photos per hour of photography in your own online gallery, from which you may order framed or unframed prints ranging in size from wallets to posters. Special products like Christmas cards and canvas wraps are also available. You may share your gallery with anyone you like, so that family members may order prints for delivery by mail, even if they live on the other side of the country, or post a link to your favorite social media site.
