PHILOSOPHY
 
 
 
 
Come closer . . . I want to tell you a story.
 
 
Someday, long after you're gone, your children and your grandchildren will look for a portrait of you.  What will they find?

I capture your family in such a way that immediately transports you back to the feelings of joy and anticipation when you and your loved ones look back at your portraits many years from now.  My work is a blend of studio and environmental, color and black & white, formal portraiture, candid lifestyle, and documentary photojournalism. 

I hand edit each and every finished image -- never shipping out to an editing farm -- allowing for full artistry and customization of every frinished piece.  I'll bring your images to life wih my my distinct, timeless style, through pristine albums, canvases, and gift presentations.

Because each client comes to me with different desires and needs, all product and services are offered à la carte to allow the greatest flexibility in your experience and finished design.

The first step to working together is an in-person (or virtual) conversation
and a custom quote.   Be in touch so I can learn more about one other.
 
 
 
 
 
 


ALL PORTRAIT EXPERIENCES INCLUDE :

in-person (or virtual) initial consultation
portrait or lifestyle documentary photo shoot
in-person design consultation

     
     
 
 
ALBUMS & PRESENTATION
 
 
 
 
It is my hope that you will celebrate your family with a collection that includes a wall portrait for everyday enjoyment as well as a storytelling archival printed piece such as an album or box set. 

I've worked over many years to curate the the most high-quality, bespoke portrait products that are sure to thrill and delight for years to come.

My streamlined portrait offering includes custom albums, a unique matted proof print glass box set, custom-framed canvas, and gift prints.

All finished presentation pieces include a lifetime quality guarantee.
All custom-framed canvases include [local] in-home installation.

All purchased portraits include
printable digital archive files and social media files.
 
 
 
 
INVESTMENT
 
 
 
 

So that I may commit my highest level of time and attention to each client,
I accept only 20 lifestyle documentary & portrait commissions each year.



LIFESTYLE DOCUMENTARY

Lifestyle Documentary sessions include a studio and / or environmental session for up to three hours in any nearby location.  Images will be presented in a custom-designed 10x10 storybook album with 75 - 100 edited black & white images.

Lifestyle Documentary session investments from 2250.




PORTRAIT SITTING


Studio & environmental portrait sittings include an in-person pre-shoot discovery meeting, my time and talent during the shoot, a post-shoot in-person design consultation, and post-editing and production of finished pieces.  I will present you with 25-40 images for purchase.

Saturday portrait session investments from 2250.
Monday - Thursday portrait session investments from 1250.



BOOKING

Because every client presents unique needs and preferences, I don't offer "one-size-fits-all" packages or collections.  I offer all services and products à la carte.  To begin, we'll meet, I'll ask thoughtful questions, and take notice of your specific preferences and needs.  From there, I'll prepare a custom experience and collection for you.


An initial payment of 500 is due at booking
and applies entirely toward your product purchase.



SESSIONS AVAILABLE MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY & SATURDAY.
CONSULTATIONS AVAILABLE MONDAY - THURSDAY 10 - 6, FRIDAY 10 - 3, & SATURDAY 10 - 12.
EVENING, & SUNDAY APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE BY REQUEST.  ADDITIONAL FEES MAY APPLY.

 
 
 
 
 
TRAVEL
 
 
 
 
Having lived, worked, and traveled throughout the world, I've developed a true wanderlust and love to experience the world.  I plan my bookings to allow time and energy for destination commissions, including multi-day events abroad.  I welcome the opportunity to capture your family anywhere in the world.
