Please reach out with any questions you might have. I do my best to get back to emails right away, but sometimes it may be up to 24 hours. You can usually reach me pretty quickly by phone @ 302.381.3267. My evenings tend to be fairly busy with portrait sessions, but leave a message and I’ll call you back shortly after the sun sets.

Generally speaking no-one really likes being in front of the camera and the first 10 minutes that trepidation is available to view for the watchful eye. That being said, those misgivings about portraiture usually melt away once they realize that the camera doesn’t shoot out poisonous darts or that I am not a creep asking them to do totally weird things. So, when 30 minutes into the shoot there was still a bit of unease in the air I felt the need to try new tactics. Those tactics included scraping Old City and weird acts of PDA for beers, darts, pound cake and sandwiches at the Reading Terminal Market. My only request was that they stay close in proximity and that Brent occasionally puts his arm around Lauren. There was practically an audible sigh of relief from both of them and the rest of the night was effortless. Here’s Brent & Lauren cruising around Philly…
