What is a "natural light photographer"?
My images are contingent on the lighting situation of the time, day, and location. For example, 2 photos taken at the same time and location but one on a sunny day and one on a cloudy day, will produce two completely different images. I do use external lighting when necessary, such as with indoor situations.

What should I wear to my portrait session?
Bring options! I always suggest more solid colors than busy patterns. I want your pretty face to be the focus! Definitely be comfortable and wear something that reflects your personal style and personality. Have fun with it!
For newborn sessions I always suggest a swaddle and a comfy pajama or soft special outfit. Keep it simple!

Can you edit my images lighter/ darker?
I've worked very hard to develop an editing style I'm proud of and reflects my personal style! My edit changes slightly with the season and is contingent on lighting conditions.
