Interested in a Photo Shoot?
I have been in love with photography forever and its very therapeutic for me so I feel like its a total win-win. I am so happy to be able to share my passion with people. I love making memories for people that they will cherish for a lifetime. I love capturing the expressions on your children's faces that you know so well. I love the feeling of empowering an awkward teen and making them feel pretty and show them what we all see in them. I love giving women their power back. I love photographing the love shared within a family. I am a mother of 3 grown men and a grandmother of 5 so wrangling kids with ants in their pants, husbands who dont want their photos taken, and ....baby whispering.... is kinda my thing.
I am a Boutique Photographer that is currently offering family photoshoots, siblings, babies, empowerment sessions and boudoir. I will shoot some events and weddings at my discretion.
What is Boutique Photography you say? Heres the Coles Notes Version: Instead of the typical shoot and burn digital photographers out there, where you get 8 million overwhelming photos on a flash drive that ends up sitting in your kitchen or office drawer for all of eternity.....Boutique photography entails luxe, personalized service. It means exemplary customer service for all clients. This is a must for me. I will walk you though every detail of this process. I offer a more tailored, customized experience for the client. I hand hold you, and give you all the loving support you will need to have the best photo session available. I feel that its really important to make my subjects feel at ease, from start to finish. People are at their most beautiful when they are happy and relaxed.
After our photography session, there is more help with choosing photos that don't deserve to be in the kitchen drawer, and we will transform those photos into beautiful custom artwork for your home. I strive to create gorgeous artwork with you, or your family as my subjects. From state of the art processing labs not available to the general public to an artisan custom framer or producer of canvases and metal prints, the process is way less painless because I do all the leg work for you. I'm all about ditching the digital photos and bringing your family memories front and centre in your home. Does this drive my pricing up? Yes it does. But when you are producing luxury, heirloom pieces that will last beyond your lifetime, in combination with customized one on one service, its an investment that definitely leaves you fulfilled with cherished memories. I one hundred percent look forward to working with you!
