Preserving Happiness

I take pride in capturing this special time in your life. I offer Custom Photography. That means I spend a lot of time on each session with planning and post-processing. I work hard to get you the perfect photos and give a lot of personal attention to each session. Family sessions are done on location. I can plan the location or if you have any ideas I am ALWAYS up for trying something fun and new. A lifestyle session in your home is also an option.

My sessions are fun and laid-back-so don’t be nervous! I will take plenty of pictures to ensure lots of great images. I recommend dressing in something that makes you feel good and comfortable. Outfits don’t have to be matchy-matchy. Simply wearing the same color tones that blend and coordinate with one another look great! Layers really add depth and interest. And accessories are always fun (hats, tutus, scarves, etc). Try to stay away from busy patterns as they can be distracting.

A note about photographing young children: Please plan your day with your session in mind. Make sure their tummies are full and they have had their nap (if needed). Bringing snacks is sometimes a good idea too. You know your child/ren best so simply try to limit what may make them unhappy so we can get the best possible keepsakes of your little ones.

After the session: I take pride in my post-processing work. I narrow down the images to the best ones and I then spend a lot of time individually editing each photo to make it look it’s best. I do some light cosmetic retouching on eyes and skin (blemishes, etc) to simply enhance but not to make the subject look fake.
