About Your Session
Sessions generally last between one and two hours, depending upon everyone’s attention span. Sessions are upbeat, informal and fun. You may choose either a studio session or an on-location session. On-location sessions take place at the location of your choosing, such as at a local park or at your home.
Lisa captures genuine expressions in ways that are relaxed and spontaneous. During the shoot, she alternates between candid and posed shots. With children, she encourages play and is always looking for moments of spontaneity that reveal the spirit and subtle gestures of an individual. She seeks to capture those special looks unique to an individual and those interactions that define a relationship.
Lisa bought her first camera more than 30 years ago and photography has been her passion ever since. “I’ve always loved photography. It has always been a part of who I am. When I first started out, I shot only in black and white and did all my own darkroom work. I still remember the thrill of seeing an image emerge as it developed.”
Lisa now uses a digital camera and all her images are available in either black and white or color. Lisa’s strength in portraiture stems, in part, from her ability to put her subjects at ease. She particularly enjoys working with children. “Children readily share their many moods and emotions, and I love to capture them all, whether it is a pout, a cry or a grin.”
As a mom, Lisa understands that our kids really do grow up quickly. “Photography is my way of bottling time.” Lisa creates images that capture your child in a genuine way and that you will treasure for years to come.
Lisa uses strong and direct compositions to engage the viewer and hold their attention. She believes that what you exclude from an image is as important as what you include. “A great photo holds the viewer’s attention and draws them in to the story or person behind the image.”
