Our approach is to take inspiration from who you are and the mood board that we create. By better understanding who I am shooting, I can capture your moment in time more accurately. All creative decisions are lead by your story! We will work together to achieve the outcome you envision. From equipment to software, your photos will only be captured and edited on top of the line technology to ensure the best results possible.

Hi! I'm CJ, welcome to Pinnacle Visuals! There is an old saying, "A picture tells a thousand words." My goal as a photographer is to capture moments in time that tell a story, a story of adventure, loving family, or an exciting new business. Your story!
Family sessions are by far the most candidly photographed shoots I do! It's all about chasing those little kiddos around and having fun. Don't stress about looking like "the perfect family". Be yourselves and own it. You are going to love these photos. This session will take us to your favorite spot at sunset or sunrise for 30 minutes of shooting time. Some of my favourite spots to shoot these sessions are on beaches, in fields, and on top of mountains. In home sessions can also be amazing! Within 2-3 weeks of the shoot, your 15 chosen photos will be delivered to you via an online gallery with the option to purchase an 8x8 inch, 20 page album for an additional $250.
Let‚Äôs think big picture for a moment. 100 years from now, the memory of your life will be kept alive by the few dusty old photographs you chose to print and by the long lost files left on old computers and cell phones. My question is, how can I photograph you in a way that preserves the warm, loving feeling of your incredible family? How can I translate your unscripted moments into heirloom photographs that you and your future generations can come back to for years, decades and even centuries to come? It is from this place of inspiration that I approach each family session. My approach to photography is a delicate balance of organic emotion paired with gentle direction. With me, you‚Äôll never be left wondering what to do with your -insert body part here- hands, feet, belly button...baby toe? With me, you can both embrace your inner weirdo and let loose, because what‚Äôs the point of photographs if they don‚Äôt show the real you? All I need from you is a little bit of faith and a promise that you‚Äôll keep an open mind and heart throughout this process. Oh, and that you come well-fed because not everyone can pull off the hangry look in their photos! In return, I‚Äôll give you my best shot at time travel by creating a way for you and your family to go back to some of the best moments of your lives.
I love family sessions. Whether your kids are grown and soon-to-be going off to college, or little babies, it‚Äôs so important to document your time with them because it‚Äôs fleeting. I have a 20-month-old and I can‚Äôt even believe that he‚Äôll be two in four short months. How?!? Give me all the snuggly pictures with my boy while he‚Äôs still small. My philosophy is that the best photos come from deep connection - not only between the subjects, but with the photographer as well. And that is my goalwhen I'm invited into your moments: form a bond between us, so that my intuition is refined enough to recognize where my camera should be pointed.
