My goal for the portraits I create: To be treasured as works of art for many years
One of my favorite portraits of all time is one of my Grandma when she was a young adult. It displayed proudly on the wall where everyone could see it. And that portrait is still around over 50 years later. She has great-great grandchildren that see the portrait today.
There is no doubt that fine art photography is an investment but absolutely worth it to freeze those moments in time that will be gone before you know it.
Whether you preparing for your first child, celebrating birthdays, graduating high school, recently engaged or celebrating some other important event or moment in your life, professional photography will help preserve those memories and emotions of that time. Not only will you have great images, you will get to enjoy and live in the moment rather than trying to capture those memories yourself. And you can actually be a part of the memories rather than behind the camera.
Retainers Start At

Average total investment is between $495 and $1799
Planning Meeting – This is a chance for us to get to know each other so I can customize your session to give you the best experience possible. We will meet at my home studio and go over what kind of poses you want, where you may want to display your images or who you may want to gift images to. This helps me recommend packages and show you examples of the fine art products that I believe will work best for you. I offer the best quality products I can find so you can bring high-quality products into your home that will last for generations.
Photo Session – Typical sessions are usually about 1 hour. This is where I will be taking photographs of you and your family. Even if you don’t like to have your picture taken, I’m sure to get a smile out of you and make this as fun as possible. I strive to get those natural smiles and interactions with your family while also capturing some images of everyone “posing” for the camera if that is what you want!
Viewing/Ordering Session – I will likely post a couple sneak peak images on my Blog within 48 hours unless you prefer to see them first. About a week after your session, I will have anyone in the family that will need to help make decisions to come to the meeting. This is where I will present all of your images on a big screen. Then with my expertise and undivided attention, I will help you decide what poses and sizes that will look best in your home. I have software that can give you a visual of your images in the rooms of your homes. It is great for size comparison.
*Package discounts are only valid on the day of your viewing session.
Order Pickup – This is the fun day when it feels like your birthday!!! Your fine art prints and products will be packaged and ready to pick up at my home studio within 3 weeks (6 weeks for albums).
