Documentary style sessions for family, couples & elopements/intimate weddings



Roam & Howl

Not a fake version of you, your family, or any 'ideas' of what is right and perfect. After years of photographing couples, weddings and families from all over the country, I've always felt the most drawn to the situations where my subject is reflecting an authentic version of themselves. No Pinterest board inspo, no outside influences or a "must-do" shotlist. My people are the ones that truly just want to capture their lives - beautiful, messy, perfectly imperfect - as it is, in this moment.

Immortalizing moments shouldn't be saved for those milestones or special occasions - each phase in our lives are worth documenting just because.

how do we get the ball rolling?


Yay, I'm excited to meet you! First step is to send me a message here. We'll chat, discuss pricing and any additional questions you may have. A video chat, phone call or meeting is helpful so we can break the ice, tell me about yourselves and/or your family dynamic, and get some jitters out of the way :) Once you're ready to book, we'll pick a date and come up with the perfect location that matches your vision.

what is your general availability?


I have morning/daytime availability on Wednesday & Fridays, and evening availability on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Weekends are family time, so availability on those days are possible on occasion and subject to an additional fee (just inquire if a weekend is your only option!). Availability for elopement and intimate weddings vary - please include your date or if you're flexible when you get in touch!

do i need to do anything to prepare for my session?


Not necessarily! However, the key to getting natural images that feel like *you* is how comfortable and in the moment you are. I encourage you to set yourselves up as best as possible to achieve maximum comfort! Choose a location where you'll feel relaxed, clothing that you feel great and can move in, and allow for ample time to arrive at your session on time - we all know that running late (especially with kids) can be the first stress inducer! I also highly recommend to do whatever you need prior to get yourselves and your children in the right headspace - a quick meditation, deep breathes, visualizing the fun we'll have, or perhaps an effective bribery technique for the little ones ;) And don't stress - I know it's all easier said than done with kids, even if conditions aren't perfect, we will make the best of every situation, work with what we have, and most importantly - have fun!

how do your sessions flow?


My sessions, and documentary photography in general, are heavily client-led. With families, kids are happiest when we let them express themselves! We always start with a few photos of everyone looking and smiling at the camera, and then the rest will unfold organically. I'll suggest some direction for lighting, composition, and fun prompts - otherwise it's the most endearing when we allow the kids excitement and curiosity to lead the way. For couples, it's generally the same - I'll encourage you to focus on each other and suggest prompts that will have you tapping into your feelings and memories you already share together!

How long until we receive our gallery of images?


My processing time is around 4 weeks from the date of your session, and 3 months for elopements/intimate events. I'm committed to a happy and healthy family life in my own home, which means I have set hours for editing and office time. I will not risk quality by rushing the editing and processing of your images, however I respect the wish to have photos in your hands in a timely manner :)

do you travel?


Yes! I travel within 1 hour of Brevard at no extra fee. Additional travel time is set to $50/hr. Anything more than 5 hours (round trip) may require a lodging fee. Elopements, intimate events and sessions that require airfare will also have a lodging fee for 2+ nights, depending on the scope of your event. Please include the location of your session and any other helpful details to help me customize an accurate quote!

We often travel to our roots back in Vermont/Rhode Island, especially for past clients :) If you're located here, please reach out! We may be planning a trip up that way already!
