Portrait Sessions

As a photographer I specialize in creating contemporary candid portraits of expecting mothers, newborns, babies, children, teens, seniors, families & weddings. My goal as a photographer is to capture natural images utilizing natural light, simple backdrops and very few props.

Sessions are best if set up during daylight hours in order to make the most of the natural light. Sessions run one to two hours long depending on the age of the child. Sessions can be held at your home, a favorite location or at one of the many places I can recommend. Breaks for feeding and play are welcomed.  Attire should be natural, comfortable and would be best without words & logos that can be distracting in photographs. I welcome bold and bright colors for child photographs. Family shots should be with similar color tones for best results. Attitude is everything. I want your session to be as fun and relaxed as possible.

Following your session, proofs will be ready within two weeks. You will be emailed a link to view your gallery of images.  You are welcome to pass this link along to anyone you would like. Your photos will be password protected. Proofs will remain on the web site for 30 days. If you wish for them to remain on longer, there will be a $25 rehosting fee. You will receive 25-30 images in combination of color and black and white. You may order prints right online. You can expect to receive your print order within two to three weeks from the date of your order.
