We meet online via so we can both see my computer screen. You can either Dropbox me your images or we can go through your website. Our session lasts 3 hours, and no topic is out of bounds. I'm here to help you think more creatively, and will encourage you to be more thoughtful with your shooting.


- We can go through your latest shoot, frame by frame

- I can help you edit your next blog post, with your strongest images represented

- I can help you discover other ways to document a scene

- I can add to your "portrait session toolkit", so you're not struggling the next time your clients ask, "What do you want us to do?"

- Honestly, we can discuss whatever you want – I'm an open book!
