why hire a professional photographer?

we're awesome! BUT ALSO ...

With the recent explosion of the digital camera market, and even smart phones that take amazing photos, why should you go with a pro? Just because your friend, co-worker, or relative may have a high-speed, high-quality digital camera, does not mean he/she is an amazing photographer. 

While good “over-the-counter” equipment does help the average consumer up their photography game, a professional photographer brings an artistic vision, approach and creative eye that can’t be bought at the electronics store!

When you come in for a consultation we will collaborate and plan the portrait session of your dreams.  Let's celebrate your unique beauty and style with a couture portrait session that puts the focus on you, with some pampering too! We create a portrait experience that will bring out your inner beauty where you will shine.  Our goal is for you to see how truly beautiful you are through our lens. We have a variety of gowns in our studio you can choose from,  we can help you choose items from your own wardrobe, or guide you to locations to choose something for your session.

Our portrait sessions combine contemporary, fashion style portrait photography, and a variety of flattering poses in a fun upbeat studio environment.  You will be guided through your session from beginning to end with posing, a variety of looks, and wardrobe changes to provide you with a variety of portraits for your reveal session. 

Whether you are booking couture style portraits just for you, maternity, family portraits with the kids, senior pictures, pet portraits or a personal fashion session we will bring out your best.

Our goal is to provide you with an incredibly session. A Couture Portrait Session is a completely different experience than regular portraits. For some of us, it's a once in a lifetime experience. I love photographing these sessions and sharing the reveal of images after your session - - during your ordering session. It’s a really unique, beautiful, and emotional experience for my clients.

Like any parent, you’ve been capturing your kids’ biggest moments since the day they were born. A professional family portrait session will help you not only capture your beautiful family, but will bring their special personality, unique attributes and fun, playful personas to life.

Whether you’re a new family of three, recently added a new member or are simply savoring this amazing time in your children’s lives, any time is a perfect one for a portrait session. Maybe your family includes you, and your dog(s).  We love photographing these "fur" families too!  As the expression goes, “the days are long, but the years short”—time goes by so quickly and it’s essential these beautiful moments are captured before they’re gone. Many families even opt for multiple photo shoots in a year! 

Sessions take place in my studio, on location, or in a special spot where your family can be comfortable and have fun—think a favorite park, field, backyard, beach or anywhere you just love. Add in some favorite clothes, a special prop or two, and maybe even the family pet, and you’ve got a great session—and amazing pictures—you’ll love forever.

and personal

The corporate headshot has evolved a lot over the years. Today, the business headshot is very contemporary, highly styled, and it needs to immediately set you apart from your competitors. This type of “Personal Branding” is perfect for Lawyers, Doctors, Real Estate Agents, Business Executives, Authors, Creatives, Bloggers, Artists, Designers, and Musicians alike. It is also equally important to style hair, makeup, and wear clothing that matches your brand or type of business and to show your brand’s personality.

We can create an image that is exactly right for your brand. Personal branding is a massive part of my business right now and I’m finding with online businesses, with LinkedIn, there’s a new “corporate look” that that bloggers, writers, business professionals are all looking for.

We would love the opportunity to assist you with your personal brand photography by offering you a professional, customized photo session that brings every aspect of your brand to life. Not only will we help you create a visual version of your branding message but we’ll also create a photo experience that will leave you feeling great. Call me today to schedule a consultation and let’s talk about photographing your personal branding portraits.

A professional business portrait is like a good first impression. The portrait you present yourself with will influence the way you and your business are perceived.

Our basic headshot session includes 30 minutes of time in our studio with up to two outfit changes, black & white background choices, and 1 professionally edited digital image of the portrait of your choice.  You can use this for marketing materials, brochures, business cards, your website, etc!  Additional images can be chosen on site at your ordering session for an additional $95 each.  Hair & Makeup is not included but can be easily added to your session for an additional $125.00 with one of our professional hair & makeup artists.

Personal branding photography is a relatively new aspect of visual branding, with savvy business owners jumping on board to take their branding to the next level. A personal branding photography session differs from a typical headshot/portrait session in several ways. With headshots, the focus is simply you, usually shot from the waist up. Headshots are incorporated into personal branding sessions, but we don’t stop there. We delve deep into not just who you are visually, but telling the story of what you do and why you do it via detail shots, lifestyle shots, photos of you in action, you with your products, etc.  Hair & makeup is additional.

I also offer onsite (or in the studio) corporate and company headshots for larger groups. Contact me for more information on customized group rates.

frequently asked questions

Below we have compiled a list of things our clients might want to know prior to booking their session.

Have Questions? I’d love to answer them. Feel free to contact me if your answer isn’t listed below!

You have questions & I have answers



My photography style is clean, simple, and timeless, and my shooting style is fun and engaging! Please visit the gallery on my page to get a better idea of my portrait style. This will help you know what to expect from your images and if we are a good fit.

Ideally, I like to meet with my clients in person, or have a phone consultation prior to our session to get to know you better and discuss the details of your session. (SKYPE is a great option for our first meeting). Once you decide that I'm your photographer of choice your session fee retainer, and signed contract will lock in your portrait session date.

We sit down, relax in my studio, (or online via SKYPE) and I’ll display your images in an elegant slideshow (or reveal wall) followed by a guided, hands-on experience through the ordering process. I’ll show you samples, and help you choose which prints to order, what sizes will display best in your home, and help you stay within your budget to get the most out of your investment.

The deliverables such as the prints, digital images, albums, wall art, or cards. I pride myself on creating an impeccable experience and amazing legacy portraits/products that will last you a lifetime. More importantly, I am proud to provide a truly unique and personalized experience for each of my clients from beginning to end.   

The session fee is $295.00 and covers the in-person (or SKYPE) consultation, on-location or studio portrait session, props and clothing, professional wardrobe styling, and in-studio viewing.

The session fee is due in full at the time of booking, and this payment will hold your session time, and date. This fee is a non-refundable retainer. To pay your Portrait Session Retainer you will receive an invoice via email that will allow you to pay online using your credit card. You also have the option to send a check if that’s easier. When making purchases at the studio you can pay by cash, check, or credit card! I can also set you up on payment plans through Square if needed. Sales tax does apply to the package pricing.

Life happens, and I get that. I am happy to reschedule your session one time as long as I receive a 24-hour notice. If a second reschedule is required, you will forfeit your original session fee, and a new session fee will be paid for the new session date. *Inquire for details.   

Remember, you are already fabulous! The portraits that you see at your reveal session will be retouched to address harsh shadows, blemishes, wrinkles and any concerns we discussed during our initial meeting. My goal is a gentle retouch so in the end, you still look like your amazing self.

Digital portraits are the same price as printed images. Every image purchased comes with a digital image and print. 

I love creating “Legacy Portraits” that will be cherished for many generations. I have family portraits in my home that date back to the early 1800s, and I cherish them. I feel connected to my past, my heritage, and our family’s story. Plus, to many times digital images sit on the thumb drive or CD, and never see the light of day. By providing printed portraits, you can look back and smile when you remember the moments from your portrait session. 

I have a studio wardrobe on hand that you are welcome to use for your session. Since many women come in different shapes, sizes, and style preferences I have a variety, but I do recommend viewing our studio wardrobe prior to your session. I also have a list of recommended places to purchase items if you’re looking for suggestions. I will ask you to bring your own wardrobe to the session as well and we can mix/match items. During our consultation prior to your session we will discuss wardrobe styling, so you’ll be very prepared for your session.

Yes! We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. If you have a different card, just let us know.

Yes! We can arrange a monthly payment plan. Send us an email, and we can get the information your way. Session Fees must be paid prior to the session and cannot be setup with a payment plan.
