What you'll do
Let's explore the Bywater neighborhood together! We'll walk the streets to find one location after another, amidst funky shotgun and cottage style homes in vibrant colors. I've mapped out over three dozen murals, graffiti art, and street art pieces, throughout the neighborhood. As we explore, I'll take your portraits. Afterwords, I'll give you access to my (always growing) map of artworks, complete with artist information of course. This experience is perfect for couples, small families, travel buddies, or solo travelers. Don't worry, if you haven't had a professional portrait session before, or if you're self-conscious in front of the camera, remember that it's my job to help you relax and put your best face forward. I'm certain you'll have a fantastic experience! I also have experience teaching photography workshops, so if you'd like, I can also give you some insight in to how to best capture your own images with your camera gear as well, for your future traveling photography. A note about the group size: If you're the only guest who books, you'll have a private session. However, a total of six guests (or three couples) may book for the same time. Rest assured, you'll each have plenty of time in front of the camera, and I'll cater my shooting style to suit each individual's needs. If you're interested in other dates, other experiences, or a private session, please ask!

Where you'll be
We'll meet on the edge of the Bywater neighborhood, one of the most up-and-coming artistic parts of the city. We'll explore all the big vibrant murals and graffiti art on the streets. If you'd like variety of scenery, we can also explore nearby Crescent Park, along the Mississippi river, and its iconic "rusty rainbow" bridge.
