I take snapshots of life.
My goal is to always make you feel comfortable as I capture the story your spirit wants to tell. I am a journalistic photographer by trade; this is the style of my work. Since 2005 I've served as a writer, editor and photographer for print and online. My portfolio includes work for the national Native-American food brand Tanka Bar, Kasandrinos International, The Dallas Morning News, Plano Magazine and other Dallas-area publications, the art initiative ArtLoveMagic and local non-profits and small businesses. I also specialize in events, journalistic portraits, small weddings...and even gummy bears.
My work has been on display in Dallas/Fort Worth and South Dakota art shows, galleries and featured in local media. I love what I do and the people I get to meet make all the hard work worth while. What I promise to deliver to you is an experience, not just a photo session.
My set rate is $200/hour no matter the location and includes 20 edited, full-resolution images for download on a personal gallery. Various print options can be accommodated for an additional charge. Depending on location of shoot, a $25 fee may be added for mileage. If a studio location is preferred, rental rates may apply.
Please see my work at the following link and other photo offerings below.
50 mm Love (simple, elegant, classic)
This is a special opportunity to take intimate photos in the privacy of your home or location of your choice. The setting will be very timeless, offering a few key elements, beautiful lighting and only using a 50 mm lens, one of my favorite looks. It doesn't have to be a special occasion in order to feel gorgeous.
Investment of $300 includes:
Up to two hours
Up to three wardrobe changes
1 8 x 10 quality print
10 high-resolution, professionally edited photos of your choice on USB flash drive
Online gallery of photos purchased available for up to one year
Additional digital images available for purchase at viewing session
Professional makeup artist available for an additional $150
An additional fee is required if a studio location is preferred.
For an additional $30 you can choose to have your makeup done by me. I am not a professional makeup artist by trade but I am fully capable of capturing your essence in a lovely way. As a photographer, I already know what your best look will be against the lighting we will use during your shoot and makeup will be done under that lighting.
Art Is Life Studio loves intimate weddings. That is really our thing. I have taken photos at varied locations big and small and have found that sweet spot of the kind of weddings that fit our style. If you have a huge ceremony and reception with an even bigger wedding party, we are probably not the right service for you and can recommend some fantastic photographers in the area that would be more than happy to assist you.
