Storytelling is the oldest art form known to man. It is how we shared the stories of our ancestors, it is how we were taught the dangers of the world. It is how we learned about hope, and love, and how to dream big. It is how we reminisce. It is how we grieve and remember.
I use my mix of film making and professional photography to tell the stories of who we are. Love found, baby's born, business triumphs, legacies shared; all have the makings of a good story. Whether a cinematic view of your daughter's first moments in this world, or an interview with your parents where they can recount their own love story and the legacy of life lived well, or a short film about the hard earned success your business has achieved, I can help you tell your story. All films and photography are designed to be created for all purposes, whether sharing online, printing and framing your images, or viewing your films in HD in your living room with your family gathered round.
Contact me to find out how your story can be told. Each client is unique, and the method for telling a story will vary depending on needs.

Parenthood is raw and real and messy. This is where I shine. The beginning is quite possibly the most emotional, ecstatic, terrifying moments of a parent's life. You swing between thinking, "Ooooh, how did I make something so cute?" and "Please don't die while I run to the restroom!" Later on, when your child is sleeping through the night, doing homework, or off to college, you will watch the films and see the photos that captured the reality of that moment, and revel at the magic of it all. This moment, where you go from carefree adult to parent, is what photography was invented for. I offer packages that include photos and/or video of you preparing for baby (maternity pics too), at the hospital, and when you bring baby home. CONTACT me to find out more about this unique way to document your baby.
Ah, kids. These little "mini-me's" running around with your genes, acting funny, talking funny, and making you proud. My method for shooting kids is to let them be kids. I have no interest in forcing a moment, posing them into some position that they would NEVER do in real life. Plus, real life is worth photographing. I believe when you give the kids the environment for them to be themselves, the photos and films make themselves. CONTACT me for photography and short film packages (there is no better way to capture your child's development from year to year than through a short film).
Family photos, for some, is a necessary evil where everyone dresses up, fakes a smile, and sweats it out till the photographer determines if there is one photo where everyone is smiling. I believe that when Dad is uncomfortable and the kids are bored, the photos will be stiff and unrealistic. My photography and short films are about moments and real life. My goal is that in twenty years while looking at your photos, instead of you saying, "What were we thinking?!" you say, "That was such a fun day! I am so glad we have that on camera." The best thing to come out of my ten plus years experience professionally shooting, is that portrait sessions can be done in less than an hour; quick, painless, and fun. CONTACT me for more info about family portrait sessions. Prices start at $250 for Mini Sessions and $400 for Full Sessions, and they always include digital negatives.
I started offering short documentary format films to my clients several years ago, and the response has been overwhelming. "I am so glad we did this," and "If we didn't take the time to document [insert name of loved one]'s story, I would have never known he/she did !" are just a few of the sentiments that are expressed when a family sits down to see their loved one's legacy captured in cinematic form. Consider this unique service to document your family's legacy today. CONTACT me for more informtion.

Boudoir Portrait Sessions usually begin with nervousness, but quickly become relaxed and fun (I swear)! Sexy photos can be done while totally clothed. Nakedness is NOT necessary. You are in control of what you wear and how much skin you show.
The care that taken in capturing your images, storing your images, and sharing them are all done with your privacy in mind. No one sees your images, except you, Jessi, and anyone you care to share the photos with.
