This is a time for us to get to know one another, while we plan for your vision for your custom portrait session. I offer complimentary consultations at my beautiful fine art studio, so you can see our professional space & everything we have to offer, or we may Skype/FaceTime or chat on the phone as well.
This will calm the nerves, & ensure that the photoshoot’s images reflect your unique style & desires.
You are very important to me – so I want to help prepare you with a variety of information to feel confident you will get images you love. Clients get access to our online ‘VIP Client Lounge’ where I have a variety of planning resource to prep for your session.

I am always here to help you feel your best for your session. My wall art design services are also included with your session, utilizing our Wall Art Idea Guide Book e-planner & special design software, to help visualize displaying your portraits as Fine Art Statement Pieces in your home or office, so you can be confident in your selections.
Sessions usually take place during the week in the studio (because no one wants to be hot n’ sweaty & eaten by bugs, or who knows what might be lurking in that tall grass.) This experience is a time to have fun & relax, giving you an opportunity to slow down time & enjoy making some special memories.
Often clients tell me they are not photogenic, but have no fear, as I am specially trained to pose & use the light for the most flattering portraits. All you need to do, is prepare & show up! The rest is up to me, after all, that is my job! I want to take the most beautiful portraits you have ever had, with natural yet magazine caliber retouching (so you look like you just without that blemish or scar you would rather not see.)
