Are digital images included in the Session Fee? 

No.  Products (prints, digital images, etc) ARE NOT INCLUDED in the session fees and are offered a la carte after viewing your online gallery. The session fee includes my time, travel, talent, props, as well as the editing of the final gallery of proofs in a password protected gallery.


Why don't I see all of the images you shot in my gallery?

Upon uploading your session to my computer, I immediately discard any image that does not meet my standard of quality (unflattering expressions, duplicates, etc). I then work to provide you with a gallery represented with the "best of the best". A typical full session gallery includes at least 18-20 unique "poses"; each are shown in a variety of finishes (color, black and white, etc.), for a total of approximately 35- 40 gallery images.  {Mini} Sessions include 7-9 images in an online viewing gallery.


How should I prepare for a newborn, family, child session, etc?

Upon booking, I will send you a link to my Client Welcome Site which will address what to wear, locations, how to prepare and lots of helpful hints!


Why should I hire a professional photographer?

-Know How

Taking a beautiful photograph takes more than having a good camera. I know how to use it in all different lighting situations with different types of subjects. There is a lot that goes into a good image; composition, posing and use of light!

-Professional Retouching

It is very important to know how to add just the right amount of editing to an image. A slight color pop or a gorgeous black and white edit can make all of the difference between a "nice" image and an image that makes you say "wow"!

-High Quality Products

I have access to products that are not available to the public. I can offer better quality and often unique products!

-An Artists Eye

I have that "eye" for things that many others don't. I look at the world differently and by hiring me you trust my vision.

-A Gentle Touch

Working with many different types of people (and most often children) requires me to have a gentle and easy way about myself.

-To Be In Your Photos!

Having me take your picture will finally allow YOU to be in the photos with your loved ones!
