    Choosing a photographer can be a daunting

    task... I have been taking professional portraits

    since 2000 for a wide variety of clients. I

    specialize in photographing childhood from

    birth to that pivotal senior year and those

    fleeting moments in between. I love to

    photograph you in real, meaningful settings

    that convey who you are and what you love. I that convey who you are and what you love. I

    work hard to make sure the entire process is

    stress-free for you from start to finish, with the

    end result being beautifully crafted products to

    be treasured for many years to come.


  • ExperienceInitial


    Every session begins with an initial in-person

    cconsultation so we can get to know one another.

    Your place, ours, or somewhere in-between - we

    love to meet over a cup of tea or coee and learn

    more about you and your family, your goals for

    the portrait session, and ideas for decorating your

    home. We also encourage clients to use this time

    for questions and ideas; and we love to show you

    our beautiful pour beautiful print products in-person to give you

    a feel for the nal outcome of your session.


    On the day of your session, we'll meet at the

    agreed location and time and the fun begins! A

    portrait session can take anywhere from 1-2 hours.

    There's really no rush - or general time limit - just

    what feels natural. It generally takes at least 20

    minutes for us to "warm up" together, meaning

    getting comfortable and feeling relaxed in front of

    the lenthe lens. After that, it's really up to the

    photographed subject as to how long the session

    will last. This is the fun part - let us do the work!

    Reveal Session

    The photos have been taken, individually retouched with

    great love and care, and now it's time for you to see the

    end result of all our hard work and planning! We'll bring

    over all the viewing equipment and set up shop in front

    of your favorite comfy couch or dining table and go

    through each image with you individually. At this point in

    time, you'll have the opportunity to choose the photo-

    ggraphs you would like to have as prints, albums, canvas,

    or a variety of other handcrafted photo products we

    oer. We'll bring over a pricing guide and make recom-

    mendations for photo products we think would enhance

    your living space! This is your time to ask questions, place

    orders, and get excited about your images.

    Personality first.


    Try to coordinate without matching exactly. Start with a basic

    color palette and go from there. Use a couple of colors in the

    first outfit and then add neutral color and add a few color pops

    to coordinate between the subjects. Most of all wear clothes you

    feel comfortable in.
