The Session

I am committed to providing a relaxed custom photography session and beautiful portraits for you and your family. And, unlike chain studios, I edit each of your images to ensure the most artistic interpretation. Photoshop is used to remove blemishes, clean up runny noses, bumps and bruises. Along with color images, you will be provided with a variety of artistic images, including black & white, sepia and other creative finishes. Collages and storyboards are also available.

Your portrait session can take place in my home studio, a park or any place that has special meaning to you. Outdoor sessions will be scheduled for the morning or evening. Outdoor sessions will usually last between 1 and 2 hours with plenty of time for clothing changes. My goal is to get that natural smile and real emotion. I will talk to you about the kind of photographs you want to have taken prior to the session.

Clothing should be an expression of your child but should be considered carefully as it can have a big impact on the final outcome of your portraits. You want your portraits to be timeless so solid, simple clothing is recommended. Jeans, khakis and sundresses are classic choices. Busy patterns, logos and cartoon characters should be avoided as they distract attention away from the face and can also date your portrait. With that being said, we can also have a lot of fun with colorful and funky outfits. If you're child has a favorite blanket or stuffed animal, bring it along. Colorful hats and scarves can add a lot of personality to a photo as well. If you aren't sure, I can offer advice about clothing when the session is booked.

About one week after your session, images will be displayed in an online gallery for you to choose from.
