the experience

 
 

I capture the details before they change, preserve the memories before they fade, and create timeless, heirloom artwork that become more valuable with each passing year. I’ve come to learn that while almost all clients want digital files, what they really want are beautiful albums and artwork to look at with their children and for future generations to enjoy. For that reason, I offer a personalized, boutique experience designed to create beautiful artwork that fits your lifestyle.

Each session begins with a consultation to discuss your vision for your portrait session and finishes with a design and ordering appointment to select art that you absolutely love. In between, clients have access to a curated Studio Wardrobe, personalized styling services, as well as hair and makeup services, all of which help you to look and feel your best during your session. Finished portraits are viewed for the first time as printed proofs, beautifully packaged in a glass presentation box. The entire experience is designed to go above and beyond what you are accustomed to, creating a truly enjoyable portrait experience from start to finish.

 
 

01. Consultation


Once you have looked through my website and decide that I might be a good fit for your portrait needs, please reach out via my contact form. We will schedule a consultation where you will learn about my process, the artwork I offer, and preview detailed pricing information. Consultation can take place in whatever manner is most convenient for you; I often meet clients at the studio or their favorite coffee shop, but many prefer the ease of telephone and email.

After consultation, I will send you a link to pay your Session Fee and we will begin planning your portrait session.

02. Session


Your portrait session will be fun and completely customized to your family and taste. I capture all the details of your sweet babies and children and encourage natural interaction so your portraits reflect your love and genuine emotion. In studio hair & makeup services, as well as complementary use of Studio Wardrobe, ensure session planning is easy and everyone looks their best.

After your session I carefully review, edit, and retouch the best images from the session.

03. Ordering Appointment


When your portraits are ready, we'll meet for your viewing & ordering appointment. We'll watch a slideshow of your images and sort through printed proofs to find your favorites. There is no minimum purchase requirement - you are free to spend as little or as much as you would like, however, most clients plan to invest $900+ at their viewing and ordering appointment on a mixture of artwork and digital files. 

Finished artwork is ready approximately 4-8 weeks after your viewing and ordering appointment.
