I am only a poem in the body of a woman.
The Art: Fine art photography is defined as "the intentional use of photography as your artistic medium of choice, used to further your conceptual idea" -Ariel Wilson.
In my sessions, you and I come up with a concept to portray you as the work of art that you are. Sessions can have a theme, or not, but the idea is to symbolize something to you. This can be a milestone, a celebration, an emotion, a rebirth, the closing of a chapter or a coming of age, or anything in between.
The Method: I use creative techniques to give us a soft and artistic feel. This method to my madness is my way of slowing down and being intentional. I consider myself and my methods to be neurodivergent-friendly, as I am neurodivergent myself. My unconventional sessions include a practice shoot, where we meet up a few days before the session to just scope out the scenery, go through some poses, and get a feel for what to expect. During the session itself, I encourage things like breaks, movement, not forcing smiles or eye contact, etc. Photos are always best when they're natural!
The Result: Heirloom portraits to be displayed, admired, and passed through your family for generations. I source from professional high-end printing labs to bring you museum-grade quality canvases and prints that will last lifetimes.
On a more personal note, I live just north of Pittsburgh in the quaint town of Vandergrift Pennsylvania with my husband and teenagers. In my me-time I enjoy nature, art galleries, live music, napping, and eating.
I am a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America organization and stand by a code of integrity and inclusion.
