I am not your typical photographer.

I’m not very loud or hyper, and I probably won’t be jumping up and down squealing during your session, either.

And that’s okay. It’s taken me a long time to realize that.

When I first started photography, it seemed like there was an expectation that in order to be successful, you had to fit into a very specific personality box. You know the type–very excitable, very “hype-girl”, very talkative and over-the-top go, go, go energy. That’s all well and good if that’s your actual true personality, but that’s not me.

I thrive in small groups filled with meaningful connections. I’ll take a cozy cup of tea and blankets with a sweet friend on the sofa over a night out on the town any day. Whenever I find myself standing before a gorgeous sunset, while my heart may be skipping beats, I’ll be the one in the crowd standing still, breathing it all in.

I share this because your photographer’s personality matters a whole lot, and I think it’s important to know what sessions will be like with me here in Portland, and how it impacts your final artwork. Because remember, you aren’t hiring me to just document X number of different family faces and groupings. You’re hiring me to spend some time with your family and filter the stories that I’m seeing in front of me through my personality and our shared experiences as mothers and families into artwork for you to cherish.

It matters in the prompts I give.

It matters in the moments I’m looking for and moments that I’m looking to create.

It matters in the mood and the tempo that I set. In the space I leave for your family to play and to love and to be yourselves and to shine.

So yes, personality does matter a whole lot.
