Hey there, I'm Velvet!

Hey guys! My name is Velvet and I'm a Lifestyle Portrait Photographer. What does that mean? It means that what I love most is capturing the in between moments that really highlight your personality. My work captures that warm and moody vibe and I prefer to shoot at or just before golden hour. I tend to edit as true to color as possible and try to focus on capturing crisp, intimate photographs of you and your loved ones. I don't shoot at a studio -- I love being outside exploring and so I shoot in more adventurous locations. My ideal clients will have a sense of adventure and won't mind maybe getting a tad dirty to get the perfect shot. Don't worry, I can edit the dirt out. Most importantly, I want to get to know my clients. I aim to capture your most beautiful but also most authentic self. I want you to feel like you're having fun with a friend... who just happens to also be snapping a million photos of you! 

Other notable things? I'm a bit of a nerd, an environmentalist, an explorer, but most notably, a mother. I have a six year old son and a newborn daughter who both keep me on my toes and who I hope will one day share my enthusiasm for all things outdoors. 

If you have any other questions, please reach out. I can't wait to meet you! 

"These are literally the best photos anyone has taken of me! Thank you so much! You are the bomb!"

"I absolutely love all of the pictures Velvet took of me and my daughter! I’m obsessed with them. I was nervous about the shoot because I’m super camera shy and my two year old daughter is a wild one, but Velvet made it so easy! She gave me some great tips about what to do in front of the camera and was very easy going and fun to be around. She was able to perfectly capture my daughters personality in the pictures and I will forever be thankful for that. I’m so glad we decided to do a photoshoot and I plan on coming back to for many many more!"
