Portraits

 filling your walls and remind you of life’s sweetest seasons? 

That's our speciality.

Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, you're enjoying live with your significant other, or simply want new pictures of yourself this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. Portrait sessions were born from past wedding couples, couples, people wanting to celebrate a milestone in their life or embracing themselves asking us to document their growing families and milestones and now we just can't get enough!

We love creating photos to remind people that in spite of the fact that life is so quick and does not stop for us that we can and should EMBRACE the craziness of life LOVE one another and ENJOY our life in the moment. YOU DESERVE TO HAVE IMAGES THAT CAPTURE THE REAL YOU NO MATTER HOW SMALL YOU MAY THINK THE MILESTONE FOR YOUR SHOOT IS. YOU ARE WORTHY OF BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS! Your story should be told regardless.

So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come. 

A lifetime of memories.

She even went knee deep in jeans in the ocean to get a few shots. Most photo shoots we feel a little awkward but with Melaney it was easy and fun. And our photos turned out beautiful!

No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date. If rescheduling is not a possibility we can shoot in a covered area and I will help find the perfect location.

The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall with weddings, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  

To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck. 

We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!) We will be sending out an extensive guide prior to your session.

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera. 

You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones. I love letting little ones be themselves to get natural candid images.

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.

Portrait sessions begin at $397. Wedding collections begin at $3,057.

I create custom packages for each and every one of my clients.
