We are capturing you, as you are, in this moment.  You are beautiful.

Did you know that most people will never print their pictures.   Ever find an old sd card and think, "Oooo, I wonder what's on that? "  You mean to look at it in just a few minutes but you get busy and toss it into a drawer for "later".   Yep, 99% of photographs never get printed or looked at more than just a couple of times.  That is why all of my packages include the high quality professional prints of each image in the package.  I believe in printing your images so much because I know they will last a lifetime longer than on old cd or sd card.  Plus, no one wants to stand around your dusty computer screen to look at photographs, but they will pass around the family photo albums to laugh and reminisce!

Who do you want to be photographed with?


An Experience Made Just For You.

Fun, Relaxing, and Genuine are three words I think of to describe a session with me.  I will take the stress out of having your pictures taken with just a little pre-shoot preparation.

Your session will be planned and styled completely in a personal consultation before your shoot.  

I will help you pick the perfect outfits and location that represent you and exactly how you want to be photographed. 



The Day of your Shoot.......


Portrait Sessions

 A typical styled portrait shoot will  last a couple hours.  During your pre-shoot consultation we will plan out your session and your vision so you know exactly what to expect.  

  Whether we are in studio for an elegant look, or outdoors at your favorite spot with the perfect golden light, I will photograph you in a way that captures your true beauty.  Dress rentals are available as is my studio wardrobe.



Family Sessions

These sessions last about an hour.  I am always mindful of the kids and what their moods are.  I've been known to bribe a little with goldfish or Smarties. This usually works for the guys too.

A Private Reveal Session

After your session we will schedule a reveal session where you will get to see your final gallery in beautiful folio prints! Here you decide which images you will take home with you. We can also design a wall gallery of framed portraits, canvases, or an album.

Portrait Sessions

My sessions are different from what you have possibly experienced before.  I begin by giving you a consultation to talk about how you want to be photographed and who you want to be photographed with.  Then we build your shoot together based on your style and vision.  This is all about you and how you want to be photographed so this consultation together is key.

The session fee is due at the time you book and it is $100.  After your session is booked we will schedule your consultation to plan and build your shoot.   Professional hair and makeup styling is encouraged and is provided if you choose.  Dress rental is also available if you choose to rent an outfit as opposed to buying one for your shoot.

  Besides the photo session itself, the session fee includes:

- the pre-shoot consultation

-the option to use items from my studio wardrobe

-the option to use studio props

-a reveal and ordering session to choose your package

-$100 credit toward your package. 


Packages start at $550

Contact me for a detailed pricing list.


Portrait sessions are available for Engagements, Bridals, Families (limited to 5 people, $15 for each additional person), High School Seniors, Maternity, and Children.   I also offer "A Day in Our Life" documentary sessions in your home.
