I have a creative mind and am inspired by the simplest of things. Sometimes working in lifestyle photography, I feel limited to the people that reach out for the types of sessions that they want.. which are still beautiful and allow me to be creative, but it can be hard to find people who are more diverse, and interested in creating the kinds of concepts that don't fit within the normal scope of the lifestyle world.
The sessions on this page, will include some out of the box concepts as well as just a search for more diverse people than is shown in my regular portfolio.

I have included the premise of the session, a description of what I'm looking for in the model(s), and I'll include links to resource materials so you have a visual of what I'm looking for.

The why...

These sessions will be severely discounted compared to my regular sessions. After a concept has been fulfilled, it will be updated here as finished, and I will link a blog post to the final product for everyone to see how it turned out.

In return for a full model release, and a $300 retainer fee you will receive the following:
1. 1-2 hour creative session
2. 5 FREE digital images
3. Discounted collections to upgrade to more digital images

Some specific sessions may incur additional fees for things such as props, food, beverages, wardrobe, location (as minimal as possible)

The Deal Is...

So what the heck are these sessions?
