ttention to detail and dedication to the artistry doesn’t come with instructions on a

digital camera. They come with the expertise gained from years of experience, an artistic eye and years of training.


If you are looking for a newborn photographer who loves to create beautiful and stunning images, I would like to be the photographer for you. So lets chat about your vision for your newborn portrait session. Everyone is unique with individual personalities, hobbies and interests. I strive to create your session with you in mind. A session that will truly be yours with extraordinary photos that reflect who you

you will receive portraits that fit you.

We bring to the table 20 years of experience, not only in photography, but also national advertising, professional retouching and design. Yes, we do those trendy edits, but we begin with sharp, professionally lit and properly exposed photographs from the beginning. If your portraits aren’t amazing straight out of the camera, they won’t be amazing with a lot of post processing. We want to create portraits that will be treasured for generations.

I have always loved those tiny little baby details. You know the ones... the adorable little fat rolls, curly toes, perfect little lips, sweet upturned noses and delicate eye lashes. Even the finest little hairs on those round little faces and shoulders. During your session I will be sure to capture as many of these details


Years from now as you prepare for your “baby” to graduate high school, head off to college, walk down the church aisle to meet say “I do” and even prepare for the birth of their own bundle of joy, you will be able to look back at these precious photos and wonder in amazement where the time has gone.

ordering your portraits


orderingprocess he most important decision in the portrait process is the selection of images for your

home. After your session we will set up a time for you to come into the studio and view your portraits. Coming into the studio to place your order is the best choice in that you can view your images on our calibrated screen and see actual samples of finishes, sizes and products. A 16x20 may sound enormous at first, but above a couch or fireplace can seem small. Before ordering your portraits please take a walk through your home and make notes of where you would like to see new art work and make a list of parents, grandparents, family and friends.



or most clients, ordering is less of a science than an art, mixing fulfilling needs with getting

the many photos you fall in love with. When planning your order, I suggest that you use this form to aid in the ordering process. Walk through your house and think about where you would like to display your portraits. Above furniture, along staircases, down hallways, on sofa tables, shelves, in a wall grouping, etc. Decide whether you would like traditionally framed prints, gallery wraps, standouts, metal prints, stretched canvas or canvas mounted to board.. Take some time to think about who you would like to give gift portraits and specialty products. Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, etc. Then decide what specialty products you would like to have for yourself. Photo books, photo boxes, accordion books, etc. Wall Portraits Where to Hang/Display

Single & Double Weight Matboard Mounting your print on matboard not only gives the print extra support, but it also helps preserve the value of the print over time. Canvas on Matboard Give your prints gallery-level quality with our canvas bonded to matboard. The canvas provides the rich texture for your print and the matboard gives it a sturdy backing that prepares it for framing or other types of display. Standout Wraps Add dimension and sophistication with this unique wall art piece. Printed on photographic paper and laminated with a mounting block on the back, Print Wraps easily create that gallery look inside your home. Stretched Canvas For even more texture and durability have your print pressed onto canvas and then wrapped on a wooden stretcher frame. Our stretcher frames are 3/4� thick. Your image does not wrap around the stretcher frame with this product. Please see Gallery Wraps for an image wrapped canvas product. Gallery Wraps Bring a contemporary edge to your images, and create a high end art piece worthy of any museum wall. The frameless presentation of a Gallery Wrap is ideal for those with gallery-quality expectations. Metal Prints Modern. Edgy. Beautiful. Brushed aluminum Metal Prints show your images in an incomparable way. We start with metal, add a coat of opaque white ink to the surface, and then print your image on top. This process truly takes your photography to the highest level in unique presentations.
