behind the lens

As you know, we can be our own worst critics - but rest assured, I got your covered!  My goal is to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during your session.  


So, while I use Lightroom and Photoshop to enhance an image, I will not alter your general appearance.  I will work my hardest to find the most flattering way to beautifully capture you and your family, just the way you are. 

I am often asked about the editing & enhancement process performed on each individual photo. 

Utilizing the latest software available, each photo considered a 'keeper' goes through a detailed editing process including adjustments in temperature, color, shadow, exposure, brightness, highlights, clarity, correcting blemishes, smoothing out skin, removing fly away hairs, removing background distractions (people, cars, etc), whitening teeth and eyes, and contrast and saturation (to name a few).  


Here are a few examples below... to better explain this painstaking process and help you visualize the transformation of 'blah' pictures into 'WOW' photographs.
