Let Me Help You Remember THIS time in your life

 

Lets get [ REAL ] ... I really want our time together to be super casual and fun! I hear it all the time "what do I do with my hands", "I always make a weird face", " I am NOT photogenic" ...

Guess what!?! It is my J.O.B to make you feel so comfortable that you forget I even have a camera and those crazy thoughts you had about not being photogenic go off in the wind. Come with an open mind and ready to PARTICIPATE and we will create images that show you in the RAW! Untamed laughter, kids wild and free And love so pure you tear up when you see it!  we will also get some posed shots but this will not be the highlight of the Session.  so what do you say!?!

prints & products

I am so excited to offer directly from your gallery a store for you to purchase items I stand behind!  Prints, Canvas and premium albums are ready to purchase when you log in to your gallery. 

 

 

digital files

Your digital files can be purchased from your gallery by utilizing the online store.  You can purchase individual Hi-Resolution images for $20ea. or  $199 for the entire gallery.  You also have the option to purchase a web sized version of the entire gallery for $50, these images are perfect for holiday cards, posting to social media or just keeping and looking at on your devices but are not suitable for prints over 4x6 in size.

*** I know it is super popular for photographers to include digital files in their session pricing.  I too have done this for many years and I have learned several things from it.  Though they are GREAT for instant gratification and posting to social media, they don't often make it to print due to busy schedules and or life in general.  If they do make it to print, is it a really nice quality print?  Or was it really easy to go to Walgreens/Costco/Walmart?  I want to help guide you to taking these beautiful images we created and having equally as beautiful prints and products to display them.

When I shoot your session I consider my images to be ART ... this is my form of expression and when I see images printed from a non-quality vendor I cringe.  You love the images and I could not be happier, I LOVE THEM TOO! I really do.  I know you don't mean harm and some things just seem "easier" but I promise, by ordering prints from your online store directly from your gallery, you are receiving your images as you see them on the screen with all the color and depth and on beautiful photo stock.  Lower quality (and yes, cheaper) vendors have really saturated colors and often are darker due to the toners they use.
