Work of Heart Sessions

I am a heart based photographer. 

That’s right I said HEART! 

I care about your relationships with self, family and your life partner. 

 I want to invite you to an photographic experience that will encourage you to deepen your family connection and bring awareness to the love, innocence & heartwarming fun that is in you. Life often can get busy and make us loose touch with what truly matters, our unique gifts and our connections with each other.

In my sessions with clients I gently walk you through each step of the way so you feel guided and cared for. The portrait session is experiential in nature, meaning I will ask your permission to get you to do all kinds of easy games or challenges that stimulate joy and intimacy. These invites will absolutely make you all laugh hysterically and some may even bring out some tears.  All in all, I promise to direct and craft moving and memorable portraits that are meant to leave an emotional and artistic imprint; reminding you of how unique and special you are to each other and to the world. The session is my gift to you, the art is your gift to yourself because you deserve it.

Work of Heart sessions are perfect but not limited to:

engagement sessions, individuals looking to reconnect with their inner beauty, new or longtime couples, families of all ages, mommy & child sessions, Father and child sessions, weddings, anniversaries. 

All sessions come as Collections including the session plus beautiful art products such as Luscious hand bound albums, silk boxes filled with matted portraits & complimentary digital files of every portrait you select.  You may choose to build your own package which is okay as well. Everyone is unique and has their own tastes so I invite you to choose what makes your heart sing.

Les Portraits Vintage / Vintage Portraits (francais a venir)

Strikingly beautiful, soulful and one of a kind; a tintype or glass plate portrait is the highest quality image in the world.
The client sits before a handmade wooden camera while the photographer mixes a darkroom solution under a dark hood onto a piece of glass or aluminum. The material is then exposed to light and the image of the client embeds onto silver. The material is then processed again and cleaned to reveal a unique moment in time; A true heirloom.
The portrait may be scanned to create a virtual version.

Tintype Sessions

Your image is made on blacked metal using a series of steps that you will witness live. Children and grown adults of all ages are always in awe of the magical process. Once you select your favorite images they will be rinsed, dried and baked with a handmade emulsion that I have filtered made of lavender and tree sap.This prevents the image from tarnishing over time and ensure it will last forever. You will leave your session with a physical portrait and a scanned version to share on social media. Your portraits may also be scanned to produce enlargements on fine art paper as big as 40×60′.

Ambrotype Sessions

This is pure decadence and true to the historic technique! You image is made on black stained glass or clear glass make a beautiful hand crafted piece of art to be cherished for generations. These plates last forever and a a moment in time, frozen forever in silver. Like the tintype sessions, you’ll leave with the physical photograph. These images can also be scanned to make enlargements on fine art paper as large as 40×60″.

Each session is about an hour to and hour and a half and I take you through the whole process with me, step by step and give you a historic and practical breakdown of what is happening and how the image is made! You will see each image magically appear right before your eyes.
