Natalie. "Christmas Child." My birthday is in March (Mom just liked the name).
I believe in the art of being nice. I believe in helping. I married a man who believes the same, thank goodness. We have 3 kids, all in school now (milestone!) and are doing the "young family juggle" on the daily.
I love high school seniors. I think it might be because I wasn't so sure of myself when I was a senior. I was busting at the seams to go explore the world, but also sad that I wasn't really a kid anymore.
I love working with humans one-on-one. Doesn't really matter how old you are. 7 months or 70+ years. I will take a photo of you. But before I click that shutter button I'm going to really look for you. I want to connect with you. If all you see is a camera pointing at you, then I'm not doing my job. When people see that image of you, I want them to see your most authentic self. Be who you are and let me hop in the passenger seat with you- we'll make some beautiful images.
This is my family. They are my everything. Video cred goes straight to the amazing Sean Fresh, one of the coolest guys I know.
9 times of out 10, Madison will be with me on a senior session. Madison is the girl I would have loved to be in my 20s- sassy, fun and full of style and energy. She is up on the latest trends, can throw your hair in a messy bun in a flash, and will futz with your stray hairs until they no longer need fussing.
Some other fun facts about Madison:
• coffee addict
• not opposed to rainbow hair (any color will do but I especially love it when she chooses jewel tones)
• shops on the regular at Nordstrom, Top Shop, Urban Outfiters and Free People
• recently started carrying a real wallet for the first time ever
• infectious smile, blue eyes and a great laugh; she keeps our sessions light and fun
