I travel and shoot all over the U.S. and will gladly travel to meet up and capture images for you.
My passport is current and ready to go at a moment's notice. I love international photography more than anything else and would love to talk about creating priceless photos wherever you're located or traveling.
Questions about wardrobe top the list in frequency. Before I got into photography, I majored in apparel design, and I currently do extensive commercial work with interior decorators, so I love these types of questions.
Wear what feels comfortable. If you're uncomfortable in your clothes, you will look uncomfortable in the photos.
I often work with clients on styling and wardrobe options, so feel free to ask me for access to my private Pinterest boards or share a board with me for help on achieving a certain look.
Base recommendations always include flowy dresses or skirts for women, in either bold florals or solid colors, giving your hair beach waves or going au naturelle, and putting on a touch of make-up to highlight your natural features. For men I recommend a recent haircut or beard trim to look fresh but not straight out of the barber's chair, trim jeans, and v-necks or oxford shirts in a tailored fit.
My favorites? Tattoos, skinny jeans, mascara, muscles, and guys' hair that looks like David Beckham's.
