A fine portrait of your loved one is one of life’s most enduring and treasured possessions - these portraits will be appreciate more and more with every passing year...
I work hard to produce fine art portraits that will show you and your family in the best possible light and setting. How you choose to present the finished portrait is hugely important to me. My goal is to transform a still image into a piece of wall art and I really enjoy working with my customers to create pieces that are perfect for them. I want you to enjoy and celebrate the images for many years to come. To help you choose the best images, I'll show you your options that include canvases, designer albums, clusters, mounted and or frame images. It should be easy for you to choose enough gorgeous images for an album, if that is what you want, as many do. And then frame the very precious ones in a style that suits your home. I'm happy to make house calls if you would like assistance with size, location, and the color and or style that will look great in your home!
The Photography Session can take place at my home studio or I can come to you. This is the first thing to take into consideration.
I offer a beautiful natural landscape outdoor setting, winding paths, rock walls, large shade trees, apple trees, small grassy fields, wagon wheels, garden, natural settings, benches, or an old chicken coop for a real rustic country feel. We will discuss which options you like best during a consultation.
Contact me to set up a good time to discuss your needs. This is the first step lets set aside about an hour to talk on the phone, this will usually happen within the next 3 days. This can happen in the evening or during the day if possible. I work alone so I have to plan things ahead. Thank you for your understanding.
When you contact me don't for get to send me a list of who I will be photographing along with ages.

Don't let your heritage end up as a disk of images that sits in a drawer or lost on a hard drive!!!
I work with top professional labs in the country that offer my clients the best photographs possible. Often if you buy digital rights the client will end up with bad quality photographs. Digital images can also be easily lost with a hard-drive failure or other technical mishaps. I feel it is important to have a finished product from your portrait session, preserved in an album, or a beautiful piece of wall art that you will enjoy each time you walk into the room.
I recommend against digital only packages for several reasons. Most people don't have the time to edit the images, touch up their images, print the portraits, and or then design their own book or album. Often when printed at home or other locations, often you will not be happy with the color and result. I guarantee my prints if your not happy I'll reprint them at no cost to you.
I do offer digital images in two sizes. The small size are for sharing on social media/ web, images are small resolution files for use on Facebook. These files are included with all collections. I also offer the option to purchase large digital files with print rights for a separate charge.
