investment and legacy
Our conversation doesn't START with the nitty gritty, but at some point it leads to what you're investing in. Can I just say though...what follows is SO MUCH MORE! Your investment in your portraits, wedding, elopement, engagement, and LIFE is more important than you realize until you hold those prints in your hands.
I will admit—I tear up EVERY time I finish up a client gallery before the official reveal. I think it has to do with the fact that I know how much they mean to you. I know that you'll be eventually seeing YOU—in all your glory and emotion—and that is beyond impactful.
As a lifestyle photographer, I am delighted and inspired by natural and raw elements: the un-staged. Often I am searching for the moments you are caught up in the emotion of the hour, the love of your partner, the joy in your eyes. I thoroughly love the feeling behind the pictures, so I must create emotion behind the camera. Natural and original, your love is like no other. So, why not work with a photographer that doesn't treat you like any other?
The rule of thumb for galleries is up to one week for a family or portrait session, and up to four weeks (or 30 days) for an event, elopement, or wedding.
I happily accept cash, checks, or VENMO as an acceptable form of payment.
I love pops of patterns that my clients bring to their style. I also believe that the best colors are those that match the Earth-neutrals, neutrals, neutrals! You can't go wrong there. If you need extra help, I would be happy to offer suggestions!

"The things that will happen if you book a session with Sydney:
1. You will laugh so hard your face will hurt by the end of the session.
2. You may end up dancing in the street.
3. So much fun will be had you will wonder if you had a photo session or just a great time with a really awesome friend.
4. Your gallery will be so beautiful it will take you at least a week to pick your most favorite capture.
We love you Sydney!! Thank you again for some amazing memories..."
"We had the pleasure of working with Sydney this fall. Her energy was delightful and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She does beautiful work and we’re looking forward to collaborating with her again in the near future!"
"We loved our photo shoot with Sydney! She captured subtle expressions, highlighted each of our personalities, and brought out our best features as a family. We highly recommend a session with Sydney. Her down to earth and personal approach will make you feel comfortable and at ease, the recipe for great photos!"
"Hanging out with Sydney is a joy in itself. I've never been comfortable with people taking my picture but with Sydney I've never felt more at home. We had so much fun goofing around and laughing about our awkwardness and I think any person would love her. 100% recommend her for any photography needs."
"Working with Sydney as our photographer, for our engagement and eventually wedding pictures, has been a great experience. It is our first-time having pictures done professionally, and she has been thorough and comforting through the entire process. She is easy going, as well as a great person inside and out. Sydney is accommodating and has a natural talent for what she does. She is reasonably priced, and the most rewarding thing so far has been the quick turn around time on our pictures. She exhibits such dedication and has an open line of communication in case you have any questions or concerns. Along with all of those great qualities, Sydney's soothing personality puts you at ease which makes being in front of the camera a lot less awkward. When I was unsure of direction or time of day for our pictures, she went out of her way to find a location that was perfect and I’m so glad I trusted her. Our photographs came out beautiful thanks to her! I recommend her to absolutely anybody who needs a great photographer!"
"My time spent working with Sydney was truly a wonderful experience. I went into the session worried about how I would look in the photos and if I was doing things right for what she wanted. Once we started she made the whole process feel like we were just two friends hanging out having a good time. I stopped questioning myself so much and just talked with her. She brings out natural laughter and confidence I didn't know I could have with someone I just met. I could not have been happier with my photos and the time I have spent with her. I truly gained a lot from my experience shooting with her."
"Our wedding day was filled with love and emotion. Much care and attention went into preparing for our vintage style wedding. We wanted to share our discovery, relationship and style with our wedding guests. We asked Sydney to be our photographer and thought she did an amazing job. Her candid shots and creative expression captured not only the visual elements but the emotion too. While some pictures were structured, it was those pictures we viewed after the wedding that revealed many of the hidden blessings that were caught through Sydney's eyes and lens. I would highly recommend Sydney as a photographer who not only has a creative edge but has the sensitivity and insight to be in those places that tell a story."
