My Photography Style

I think you’ll find that my focused and fun nature plays a big part in my photography. It’s such a humbling responsibility to be entrusted with capturing my clients “once in a lifetime,” moments on camera. Being able to preserve those memories for them is one of the best feelings in the world.

My photography is authentic, organic and above all — full of love. My passion lies in capturing people who are truly connected, who adore their family and want to celebrate that bond with lasting memories. I love photographing families who love natural light – whether outside or inside with beautiful light streaming in – and who don’t mind a little adventuring to get the perfect photo.

I Love Photographing Families

My love for photography began in childhood. My mom always had a camera with her to take pictures of the family.  As a teenager, I would rarely leave the house without my camera.  When I married my husband in 2009, he quickly realized my love for photography, both candid and formal.  He encouraged me to take it further. I started out photographing friends and family for fun, but it didn’t take long for my favorite hobby to turn into a career I was incredibly passionate about. In 2012, I photographed my first family – it was love at first sight . . . or click I guess.

For me, there is nothing as wonderful as being able to capture the beauty in a person. Each time I meet a new family and learn about their lives together I’m deeply moved. It’s my goal that my clients become my lifelong friends. Watching them grow together through the years . . . from engagements, to weddings, milestone anniversaries, pregnancy, adorable newborns and growing children . . . gives me such an overwhelming feeling of joy.

God creates the beauty. My camera and I are a witness.   Mark Denman
