Your Portrait Experience


    Ask me anything! I want to make sure you are photographed to showcase your uniqueness, so let's hear all about YOU!


    Let's design the look and feel of your session. From choosing locations, wardrobe, accessories, backdrops and lighting, I will walk you through how we will visually communicate who you are. All sessions include access to my studio wardrobe collection.


    This is the most FUN part! Whether we take care of your hair and makeup or you do it on your own, you will feel like a rockstar! No need to worry about where your hands should go, where to look or what expression to make. I will guide you the whole way!


    About 2-3 weeks after your session, I will invite you back to view your portraits and place your order. The great thing is that you only buy the images you love! Who needs 4 images of the same pose and similar expression?!

A portrait is not just a digital file.  In fact, it is a whole EXPERIENCE, at least it should be.

The experience is in the preparations such as getting your hair updated, nails done and choosing a wardrobe that communicates your personality and makes you feel amazing.  I say dig out that fabulous dress that you love but might not ever wear again.  We will immortalize it with you in your portrait!

I will choose which lighting setup and backdrop/location will go well with your outfits, you don’t need to even think about it.  We will laugh, have fun and create something that you and your family will treasure.

Having professional hair and makeup done on the day of the shoot is just one thing that makes it a special experience.  Whether you want a fresh natural look or want to go full glam, is totally up to you.

Our EXPERIENCE continues after the session too!  When your images are finished being retouched, I will invite you back to view them and to make your purchases.  All Artwork purchased comes with a digital copy.

Speaking of the Artwork… it is breathtaking.

The printing company I work with is the finest quality I have ever seen.  Everything is handmade, printed in Italy and museum quality.

The Products

Wall Art, Folio Box or an Album.  Which are you most drawn to?  Your heirloom artwork can be purchased à la carte, in collections or in our new all-inclusive Worry-Free packages.

Do you know anyone that has lost digital images in their life?  USB drives can become corrupt or forgotten in a drawer.  Do you know your loved ones phone and cloud passwords to access them?  Hard drives fail and social media images get lost in the daily scroll.

Your family is your greatest work of art and should be seen every day in print, in your home and passed down to future generations.
