Welcome to Take to Heart Images

I'm excited about helping you tell the story you want through images and to have fun doing so. The best way to start is to begin to get to know each other. Here's a little about me and my love of photography: For me photography is all about connecting and storytelling. As a writer for many years, I'm most attracted to capturing images containing elements of a story that not only grab and hold my attention, but touch my heart. I had the pleasure of experiencing this time and again during the years I lived as an American expatriate in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Far East. Now I get to engage in such in the Dallas area.

 

I'm a natural light lifestyle photographer who specializes in family and senior girl portraits, and events. Vibrant and contrasting elements within the framework of a visual emotional story defines my style.

 

I limit my photo shoot bookings to one a week. That way I can give each of my clients the personal attention they deserve. They can either book a session on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. I keep Sundays open as a backup day.

 

A smooth, relaxed, and fun shoot depends on a pre-photo session preparation. I start off with a questionnaire to understand specific needs and wants of each of my clients. Then begin to develop an easygoing relationship with them through the exchange of emails, phone calls, texts, and a pre-photo session meeting at their home. I shoot for a photo session feeling like a play date, resulting in special candid moments and a gallery of keepsake images.
