When you book a photo session with me, you will get the option to purchase prints as well as the digital files from your session.
I specialize in the following:
• Seniors • Teens • Families • Children •
I am a mother to two fantastic children! They keep me pretty busy with their sports & school activities. My daughter is a mini-me! She loves people, is very determined & sometimes I think she could raise herself without any help from me, & she's only 13! My son is 11 & he is the complete opposite. He is all BOY & cannot stand to be cooped up inside, ever! He loves any sport that involves a ball & does not understand why he needs to shower & clean his face daily. I love them both to pieces!
This is where the fun begins! Right here in my studio! For seniors, this is where we will meet after you've met with the hair & makeup artists on picture day! You will be able to get changed into your first outfit & we will start with your studio shots, then change into your next outfit & travel outdoors, somewhere fun!
About a week following your photo shoot, we will meet here again to view & order your beautiful images! The ordering process is very simple & allows you to pick & choose your favorite images in the perfect sizes for your home. You will also see real life samples of everything available to order so you can get your hands on them to see & feel the amazingness!
I also shoot 1st Birthday/Smash Cake sessions in the studio as well. I have quite a few color backdrops to choose from, lots of birthday decorations & a helium tank for the balloons!
My philosophy is simple. I take beautiful photos for you to display & enjoy. The moments and looks that you'll want to cherish forever. The ones that will decorate your home for years to come.

As of January 2017, I am only specializing in High School Seniors (Girls & Guys) & will no longer be photographing newborns. I am still offering family & children sessions but only as mini sessions 2 times a month through May 2017. After that, I will only be photographing high school seniors & teens, but will offer Fall Family minis in October/November each year.
I offer Family, Children & Maternity sessions as mini sessions. These are 30 min. sessions at one outdoor location with NO outfit changes. It also includes 10 edited digital images with the option to order prints & additional digital images.

The senior portrait session fee is for approximately 2 hours of photography time at several outdoor locations & one (optional) studio shot. There is also time for 3-4 outfit changes. The session fee also includes pro makeup application for the girls (session fee is discounted for the guys), & includes the editing of approximately 40-50 images to order from.
The session fee does not include any prints or digital images. Those are purchased at your premier party the following week after your portrait session. A $500 minimum purchase is required at that time.
Senior sessions are scheduled on the 3rd & 4th Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Sundays of the month.
A Smash Cake Mini includes a CUSTOM CAKE, one outfit change, one custom designed backdrop with props & balloons in my studio, plus 10 edited digital images. Baby usually starts in his/her cute "party" outfit & then you can change them into what they will wear for the messy cake smashing part. The outfits usually coordinate so that they will still match the background set up. You will also have the option to purchase additional digital images &/or prints as well.
Birthday sessions are typically booked during baby's birthday month. If you would like to use the images for party invites or to decorate with at their party, it is recommended for the session to take place 3-4 weeks before their party date since the average turn around time for digital image delivery is about 5 business days.
Specializing in custom wall portraits, I strive to make each final photograph a true work of art,
an heirloom to be passed down for generations. I print all my images at the highest quality professional labs and use museum-quality archival papers. All canvas wraps are specially coated for longevity and for UV protection.
Canvas wraps are by far the most popular choice in printing right now. The photographs are printed on professional fine art canvas then stretched onto stretcher bars just like a painting. The result is a very modern, eye-catching work of art that is ready to hang. These are perfect for a high-impact look over a fireplace or clustered in groups.
In addition to archival quality paper prints and canvas wraps, I also print on metal, for a truly distinctive look. Most clients spend an average of $500-$1,500 per session.
Individual print prices start at $30, packages start at $350 &
canvas wall groupings start at $500.
Other products include high-end albums, custom holiday cards & birth & graduation announcements. The full collection of digital images is available for purchase as well, with or without a print product order.
This is the number one question most clients ask themselves when they set out to find a portrait photographer. And because digital EVERYTHING is so readily available, most clients assume that getting all of their files on disc should be their number one priority. However, almost 99% of clients who purchased only the digital files told me that they NEVER DID ANYTHING WITH THEIR IMAGES. Some of them invested thousands of dollars to have a disc sitting in a drawer – untouched. Why? They didn’t know what to do with them, or kept putting off choosing what to print, they ended up forgetting about it all together!
So many times I heard, “Once I had the images, I had no idea what to do with them. I uploaded them to a photo site so friends and family could print them, I put some on Facebook & Instagram, but after that, I was sort of stuck and did nothing.” By providing my clients with the option to do nothing, I simply enabled them to put their images alongside old family snapshots in the proverbial shoebox… not displayed and not enjoyed.
When you purchase prints, you are more likely to display them and “visit” them often, whether it is looking through an album or passing by a wall print. Because of this, you are more likely to appreciate your investment and to ENJOY it more. My job as a professional photographer is to continue to raise the standards of my industry and provide my clients with an experience that is memorable, and with print products that can be held in their hands and placed on their walls as ART rather than as a disc that will reside on the bottom of a kitchen drawer.
This is why I work with my clients from day one to help them plan for their images. Once the session is booked I give them guidelines on looking for the right space in their home, measuring for size and planning the session look and feel to fit with their décor in their home. I then work with each of my clients to choose the perfect images that will complement their home and their lifestyle so that they can get the most for their money.
If you are a digital only person, I HIGHLY recommend that you think about how you want to spend your money – on something that will be displayed and enjoyed or on something that will reside as a file on a computer.
