Your Session What to Expect
My time with you will never be rushed, but the time in front of the camera I do try to limit. I use a relaxed approach to capture your family memories in a beautiful piece of photographic art. The typical session will last about thirty minutes and up to hour but we will spend about 2 hours together. My goal is to connect and have fun with you and your children and before you know it we will be able to capture your child's true little personality, and children are encouraged to play.
One of my commitments is to capture the personality of your family and the loving relationship you share and bringing a smile to your families face when you see your family member captured in a stunning portrait. Great photography doesn't just happen it its planed and created.
My goal is to capture your individual character in a beautiful yet honest way - creating unique images with emotion and impact that will last a lifetime. It is essential that my shoots are relaxed and real, in a setting that allows you to feel comfortable and be yourself. Whether in the studio or in the outdoor studio we will work together to choose the right location. This may mean starting at home exploring the local parks, fields, and woods or might even mean a drive to the coast! Please visit the online Gallery to view examples of my photography.
Whether I am photographing an infant or a family of eleven my approach is the same. I ask you to put aside at least 2 hours on a day that is convenient for you. Before the shoot we will discuss possible locations at your home or nearby that are special to you. I'll also ask you want you like to wear and to bring a few extra options. I like get to know the individuals better we will talk about the location, props, and outfit ideas. Then, when we are feeling relaxed and ready, we will spend about an hour having some fun!!
I'm passionate about what I do and I strive to give you something totally individual. I do not have a set formula for each session I like to let each shoot evolve naturally. I'll do my very best to provide a great experience, fantastic service and photography that looks and feels like a piece of art.
For on location photography I like to work in the early mornings or late in the evenings, I find these times to have the best light, but I can choose a location for anytime of the day.
To have a successful portraits session it is important for us to discus the session we do this at what I call the design consultation.
The Design Consultation: We will review clothing options, backgrounds, location, and what the end goal is for you and your family. This is booked a month or so before your portrait session.

Booking your session:
Photography Sessions are all done by appointment:
I normally book sessions about two - six weeks out.
After the portrait session, you will come back to the studio, and we will sit down to view the images in about two weeks. This is when you will place your order.
I will give you personal assistance with creating custom art, wall concepts specifically for your home or office decor.
You will have options to choose from and I'll guide you through each step of the ordering process. Weather you are looking for specialty gifting items, wall portraiture, custom storytelling books, greeting or holiday cards, or framed fine art prints.
We will also discuss the level of retouching you like. Click here for a before and after look at the levels of retouching. To book your design consult today please email me.
I look forward to creating art for your home or office.
