I have an obsession: Photography.
I tell stories. A true portrait is not 'of' someone, it's 'about' someone. I have a passion for documenting life, and I LOVE photographing people. My photographs say it all; letting you know you what kind of photographer I am, and how much photography means to me.
I shoot people everywhere, believing great images give tremendous pleasure and I take immense pleasure in creating great images. Images that evoke feelings. Emotions. Images that Impact.
Sometimes it's simply being in the right place at the right time, other times, the experience of knowing when to press the shutter, wait for the light, compose, and direct the shot, and others are conceptual, taking time both to shoot and to artistically develop in post.
Either way I'll leave you WOWED; with goose bumps, smiles, tears, and laughter. And, l will surpasses your expectations, EVERY TIME.
You get ME. Not someone who just rec'd a camera, not someone who is on the list of photographers to call to fill the job, not someone who burns a disk and disappears, not just a 'wedding' photographer. Making you look great, staging, technique, and finesse in post, contribute to my style. From phone calls/emails, web updates, creative session ideas, the actual shoot, processing, editing, retouching, designing custom cards/invitations and storybook composition/layouts, it's all me.
You'll get a beautiful job done right, having fun in the process. REAL Portraits. Unforgettable memories. Irreplaceable moments. Lifelong collections. Your STORIES.
Artwork that enriches your home & business, connects you, stirs interest, and sparks conversations. Evoking feelings and memories. Capturing elusive elements of time..here today, gone tomorrow. 'Travel back' reminisce, share that love and laughter. Creating lasting treasures, images that matter, celebrating life. Destination shoot? Passport ready!
My desire and attention is making sure you receive the images you have pictured in your mind, ones that resonate with you...plus a few surprises. I am dedicated to my craft.
Family is priceless, HIRE a professional to document yours, in a way you can't do yourself, because life is a work of art. My style isn't for everybody, and I like it that way! Those that feel it is, I hope to talk with you soon.
A heartfelt thank you for visiting. With Love, Joy, & Hugs, Patti
