If you have read my "About Me" section, you will know how strongly I feel about tangible photographs to hold and feel and display on the wall or in an album. They can be treasured and looked at again and again by you and your children for many years to come.
My goal is to present you with beautiful finished work and help eliminate an easy habit of putting a CD in a drawer or left forgotten on the computer. Real pictures- printed on professional quality paper - has more longevity than a file. And while we are talking about digital files, look how much storage has changed over the years and have become obsolete. (Remember floppy drives??) Also, have you ever not backed up files (especially from our portable devices) and they crashed or became corrupt or lost? When was the last time you printed any pictures? Your pictures should be precious to you, because they are precious to me. I don't just take a picture, I make a photograph. It is my work, an image I invested my time, energy and love in creating...just for you!
I prefer to take control of the print process because files taken to the corner drug store lab or kiosk produce unreliable cuts, crops and print quality. The technician of the day running the machine and the calibration of the printer all influence the outcome of the print. What might look good today will come out dramatically different the next time. You are likely not interested in spending time and money getting your images and then turning over the products to a lab that is not dedicated to making the absolute highest quality prints possible. A pro lab's job is to make the images look amazing.
I do understand that in this age of digital technology you want to share images through social media and view them on portable devices. For this reason, I offer web-friendly and web-sized images. These images are not formatted for printing and will contain a signature watermark, but are completely shareable. High resolution, non-water marked files of the matching image will be available according to the pricing menu.

I accommodate both outdoor and indoor sessions, however indoors is limited on the number of people due to having a small space available.
Outdoor sessions are best done early in the morning or 1-2 hours just before sunset. Cloudy days work just fine for a soft, diffused light. High noon and mid-day sun creates harsh shadows and will be creatively dealt with.
You are allowed outfit changes and the use of props.
Ideas on what to wear can be found on my Pinterest page.
There is no fee for rescheduling due to rain and wetness.
Let's talk soon!
