Anything for the delight and love of photography is there for you to enjoy and expose you to brighter visual horizons.

I invite you to enjoy a beautiful portrait of yourself, your family and pet(s), taken in a comfortable state of the art studio that is completely dedicated to showing the subject in the best light. Getting the best results is a creative process and a fun experience for you and your family.

I like to focus in on the character, beauty and look of people and subjects using a variety of simple – low, medium, or high key lighting set-ups and techniques. The latter, high key lighting can be transformed to colors or other backdrops/locations if so desired. And keep in mind that black and white photography is a wonderful option.

Instant adjustments and selections will be made as we take several opportunities, using a large monitor, to review a set of photographs taken. This will insure your complete satisfaction before leaving the Studio.

All photography and related services, such as prints or promotional materials, are created specifically for you, therefore sitting fees do not revolve around time. My work for you is complete when you see a variety of photographic options you are very happy with. The number of people or pets or both to be photographed does enter into giving you a price. Possibly you wish to have a variety of poses or groupings of family members. Whatever you desire and enjoy, please come in and let me know. My pricing is balanced, the treatment you will receive will be with care, and the photography will be masterful.
