Having spent my formative years in my father’s darkroom, photography was in my blood (or, at least the chemicals were). Growing up in St. Louis, I spent much of my time in art and architecture studios until photography called me back after many years working in New York City and London.
I specialize in modern, unpretentious, and honest natural light photography. My passion lies in capturing true connection and emotion.
A little about me. I’m obsessed with light–natural or incandescent (CFLs make me dizzy- sorry Earth), Dr. Martens, movie theater popcorn (with half a liter of imitation butter oil), fuzzy socks, bacon, Junior Mints, Jeremy Murphy, salt, tattoo artists, Kurt Vonnegut, that one song by Milky Chance, bacon, everything Swedish (except that nasty fish paste in a tube), tap water, trying not to kill myself on skis, bacon and my family.
Photography sessions are unposed and unscripted. You want to go apple picking? Perfect. Take a dip in the ocean? You’re on. Find a perfect picnic spot? Done. Cliff-jumping? Wicked. All I ask is that you enjoy each other and let the kids be kids (minus the blue raspberry jolly ranchers- you know who you are).
A family or newborn session fee is 850 dollars, which includes immediate family members only. Sessions are flat-rate and all-inclusive meaning one price gets you the session + approximately 45-60 high resolution hand-edited digital files + a print release + a professional 4×6 print of each photo. This way you don’t have to on-the-spot choose between an album and a canvas. And you won’t get the hard sell. Plus I’m happy to professionally print whatever photos you choose, whenever you choose them.
I will shoot at any location within 25 miles of Old Greenwich, CT. I love to travel, so I am also happy to shoot at locations further afield; however, they may incur travel and transportation fees. Please contact me for details.
I photograph a limited number of sessions each month and they tend to fill up 1-2 months in advance (earlier in the fall). In order to secure a spot for a session, I require a $250 non-refundable deposit, which will be deducted from your session fee.
Holiday sessions must be held prior to Thanksgiving.
I am also available for commercial and editorial assignments. Please contact me for my current rates.
