Sonder Portraits

I chose the name Sonder because I wanted the name of my business to convey the nature of my photography:

Sonder n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own - populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness - an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you'll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background; as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

My goal is to provide images that create those moments of sonder for the viewer. Images that express relationship, intimacy, connection and conveys a little of your story. I strive to create an environment that allows you and your family to be authentically you and to provide images that show the real beauty in that.

Check out my portfolio and the FAQ's page to learn more about my lifestyle and documentary sessions. Don't hesitate to shoot me an email at sonderportraits@gmail.com if you have any other questions!

I look forward to hearing from you!
