Photography From My Eyes to Yours
My name is Hope Staves .
I'm an outdoor, natural light, lifestyle wedding and portrait photographer. I'm a canon fan . I shoot with a 5D Mark III and use PS cs5.1 and LR
I believe in education and being at the top of my game .
I fell in love with photography at the age of 13,
when I was the model being photographed .
After years of self taught , continuing education and earning highest honors in Photography, the wonderful journey has begun.
I'm currently serving the Southern Indiana & Louisville Ky area and travel is welcome !
So think "Out Side the studio " and allow me the honor of capturing these fun and messy moments in your life!!
*Your session is all about you !
I want you to have fun and achieve the style you want.
I offer free consultations so we can make sure we are a good fit.
*My style is bright, hazy, crisp and warm & yes, custom black and white.
* I like to give you the option of location and clothing style. (I'm always giving suggestions though )
I have traveled to California , Illinois , Indiana , Kentucky & Ohio for clients and would love to travel for you too !
*I also have the privilege of being an approved photographer of a wonderful organization called
" Inspiration Through Art " & " Red Thread Sessions"
If you know a family or child that could benefit from either of these please contact me for more information .
* Each session comes with a print credit so you can see the true beauty of professional prints in your home .
I want my prints to be affordable so that you want to print them. It's no fun leaving them on a CD or having them distorted by 1 hour prints.
* I don't believe in over editing .
I take the time to get it right in the the camera so my turn around time is much faster.
If you have a special editing request I'm more then happy to address it. However I let kids be kids and scars be scars .
( Temporary marks and blemishes will be removed .
Scars , lines and birthmarks will not unless requested.
This makes you ,well... you . )
