The evolution of Fifth Element Images has been a work in progress for some time. Like the newborns I lovingly photograph, who have taken nine months to blossom into the beautiful babies they are, Fifth Element Images has been nurtured and fostered creatively over a long period of time to ensure its debut fully represents all that I am able to offer to my clients in a creative way. Fifth Element Images is the culmination of my sincere longing to serve others by honoring my calling to create special, keepsake moments in time. The birth of Fifth Element Images is the culmination of my lifelong passion for both people and photography. Most importantly, Fifth Element is about Spirit. There are the concrete known elements of earth, wind, fire and water but what I offer is more esoteric. I capture your spirit, the essence of you, your newborn, or your family. I capture your “Fifth Element,” that is: what it is that makes you, you.
At Fifth Element Images I tell stories using images, not words. Powerful, stand-alone images that resonate and inspire, that evoke special memories and that remind us of key milestones in our lives. It is both our privilege and a reflection of our unique talent, which allows us to bring your precious moments to life then capture them in time forevermore. Whether you’re looking for maternity, newborn, family shots or even headshots in time for your next big promotion, at Fifth Element Images, we spend the time necessary to ensure your photographs reflect your fifth element – “the quintessence of you.”
Our specialty is maternity and newborn shots. This is such a special and sacred time for families. Recently, someone asked me why I like to photograph newborns. This was my response: “Growing a baby is a special time in a woman’s life and I want to be a part of it. When I look at mothers I am inspired….I want to create, I want to be a part of that warmth and that special time in the lives of you, your partner and your baby. I want to help capture those moments before and after baby’s arrival – helping families to build, create and record their own unique story line.” To me, this summarizes why I do what I do, I want to help families create and preserve memories.
As Founder and Principal of Fifth Element Images, I have spent over 10 years exploring photography, mastering a series of unique skill sets through continued study. College courses and workshops are integral to my work and I constantly strive to improve and enhance my craft. I am told my calm and patient demeanor is a special gift and that I help both babies and new moms feel comfortable in front of the camera. I invite you to consider allowing Fifth Element Images to capture those moments when you are “expressing your quintessence.”
“Capturing precious moments in time, preserving them forevermore!”
