With the recent explosion of the digital camera market, and even smartphones 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!

why hire a professional photographer?
we're awesome! but also ...


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. Your session can be glamorous to something simple and understated. The goal is to capture your essence and authenticity.




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 incredible 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.

My goal is to provide you with an incredible session.

Contact for detailed pricing

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 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 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 before 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.

Absolutely! 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.

You made it through~ It’s okay if you still have more questions.

Just send them over by email and I'm happy to answer them -
