The Creative Process

My studio is a full service experience with lots of fun and love.

My mission is to provide you with high quality unique images that touch your heart and your family’s heart.  For that to happen I need to KNOW you.  This starts with a consultation at my studio. I will ask you lots of questions and we chat for about 30 minutes.  I will show you the samples of my finished art pieces and go over the investment options.  If at that point you like what you see and are excited, we will then schedule a portrait session and get a deposit on your custom adventure.

Location and clothing options are then discussed and planned.  To make sure I create images that are unique to you, I study my consolation notes of our time together, and then do a location scout to make sure the light and time of day is perfect.  Sometimes we may need to change our time a bit to allow for perfect light.

You will go home with a packet that is filled with ideas and information. It is very important to plan ahead concerning your clothes choices and your hair.  This will help you to be more relaxed the day of the session.

Approximately 7 to 14 days after your session we have a Viewing Appointment.  The purpose of this time is to view and order you images.  Please bring everyone that is a decision maker to this appointment.  Allow an hour to an hour in a half for your presentation and final choices.  I have a 110 inch professional viewing system which makes it fun and easy.

Finished Portraits will be ready 3 to 6 weeks after viewing.  All work is professional retouched in house and preserved with archival materials and custom finishes. 

I spend a lot of time with my clients and I love what I do.  I am not a high pressure sales gal and truly want you to feel comfortable and trust me.  Questions are always welcome; you can call or email me anytime.

Studio is open by appointment only
