Contemporary Portraits

When was the last time you were professionally photographed?   When you come in for a consultation we will plan and design a photo shoot that you want–that you’ve dreamed of. My team of professional makeup artists and hair stylists will give you a full makeover and give you any level of glam that you want to be.   

We have you bring up to five outfits for your photoshoot and help you style them. And, if you do not have five outfits to wear, during the consultation we can style a wardrobe for you from what we offer in our studio. We can also help you find outfits to rent, or buy online. I can even make and design gowns for your shoot! I have crafted headpieces, neck pieces, dresses, tulle skirts for many of my clients. So whatever you can think of–that is what I will create for you.

Who would you like to be photographed with? Enjoy this photo shoot with your mother, sister, daughter, best friend, husband, or partner. You can plan it as a “Girls Day Out” with champagne and hor d’oeuvres.     

We can create an incredible shoot for you and your daughters where the guys show up at the end for family portraits. You can share this experience with your Mom and Grandma. I’ve photograph three and four generations together. And the best part, you can go out that night and “paint the town red” because you are all going to look and feel fabulous!  A Beauty Portrait Session is a completely different experience than regular family portraits. For some of us, it's a once in a lifetime experience and, as such, many questions may come to mind. 

The following information has been designed to answer some of the frequently asked questions, from wardrobe selection, to picking up your final products. If you have any questions that are not answered below, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to speak with you on an individual basis.

Congratulations on your engagement! Now the fun part begins...planning your wedding! There is nothing more exciting for me than photographing a wedding! Each wedding is a unique story waiting to unfold and I am a storyteller who specializes in capturing those moments that share your story of love. When planning your wedding, selecting the right photographer to capture these once in a lifetime moments is a huge decision! 

You will find that I offer several wedding collections that accommodate a variety of needs and budgets. I will listen to your ideas so I can get a sense of what you envision for your wedding photography. My shooting style is quietly unobtrusive. My images naturally reveal the expressions of love and commitment that you both share.

This is my passion, and the heart of what I do...capturing those special moments throughout the day. Ultimately, this day is all about two people who can't imagine spending the rest of their lives with anyone else and having those moments captured! 

Let's connect in person....I would LOVE to learn more about you, your love story and upcoming wedding. Every couple has a love story....let me tell yours. I look forward to hearing from you! Click here to connect with me.

We 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. Once you decide that we're your photographer of choice a retainer, and signed contract lock in your portrait session. Once your session is booked an email is sent to you with a link and all the details, and a welcome packet is sent out that includes a magazine full of helpful tips, ideas, and how to plan for your session!


Before your session, we’ll meet (or SKYPE) for about 30 minutes to discuss location, props, outfits, themes, styles and other creative ideas. We love to hear any specifics you desire and how we can make your creative ideas a reality. We’ll also discuss any purchases you are interested in for wall portrait displays, and gifts and any payments toward those can be made in advance at this time.


We sit down, relax in my studio, and I’ll display your images in an elegant slideshow 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. Please bring the principal purchaser who will be making the final financial decisions and if you can, leave the kids with a family member or babysitter.


Yes, all orders must be placed at the time of your ordering session. However, if you do not place your order at that time and wish to set up an additional ordering session, you may do so for an ordering session fee of $125. Remote ordering sessions are available online for out of town clients at no extra charge.


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 non-refundable retainer.


The session fee pays for the reservation of your session time and date, the session time, and the photographer’s creative fees and artistic talent.







 



I strongly believe that photographs are meant to be enjoyed as art on the walls of every family’s home. Digital files are available for purchase individually, but for most sessions, it is more cost effective (and better in so many other ways as well) to purchase prints rather than digital files, unless they need to create large quantities of the same print. I have had clients that want to make their own prints, but once they see the products I create for them and how easy the whole experience is, they prefer to order the prints. Plus, it’s about preserving your family legacy. With technology constantly changing, a tangible print is the most secure way to pass down your memories through generations. Most people that receive digital files, never get around to printing, order low quality prints from a printer that don't use archival paper/ink and don't calibrate their printers to match my monitor, crop it the wrong way, or lose their digital files when their hard drive crashes. I archive every print you purchase, and you will be able to see how everything will look before you order it. It is, hands down, the best experience around, and guarantees the preservation of your photographs in a tangible, and timeless way that your family will enjoy throughout many years.


I'm setup to accept cash, check or credit card payments. All payments are due two weeks prior to the photography session or event. Sales tax does apply to all packages.


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.

Your wedding photos will be provided within four weeks after the wedding digitally online so you can share with friends, & family.  Once your online images are provided, your thumb drive and print release will be prepped for shipping.  During that time you’ll be able to review your images, and order additional products (unless they are included in your package). One of my favorites is our signature wedding album. The album tells the story of your day in a way that no other product can. I offer beautiful leather bound, or image printed cover albums for my wedding clients. It is the perfect ending to The Wedding Experience, and it’s a keepsake that will be the most treasured heirloom that you’ll pass down for generations.
