It’s often said that photography is timeless. I strive not only for timeless images but also for creative and lasting beautiful works of art that your family can enjoy for years to come. I love spending time with each family and specializing your session to your needs. I take into consideration favorite colors and how they may work with the surroundings, textures that may add appeal to your photos, lighting that can enhance your images to another level and what style of photography will best fit your family’s personality. My clients become my family and we work together to give you the best experience possible. Each session and image is a specialized work of art and is never duplicated. I take a calm and fun approach for a low stress session. Portrait sessions range from $600 - $3,000, there may be additional travel fees if you live outside a 50 mile radius of Traverse City Michigan.   

"We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us."
-Ralph Hattersley

When you book your photo shoot with me you will receive a pre-consultation, either in person or over the phone, to discuss every aspect of your session. Perhaps you have something in mind you want your child to wear but if not, I offer free of charge an assortment of beautifully designed dresses that can be used during your session. Together we will agree on a photo shoot date. The time for the photo shoot is not specific due to lighting conditions of the day. I only shoot for as long as it takes to get the images I need. We will determine the exact time, as the photo shoot date gets closer. Once we have completed the photo shoot I will edit 15-25 images for you to choose from at the ordering session. During the ordering session I will show you various purchasing options. Petite sessions are now offered in 2018 and start at $350. Regular sessions have a $175 session fee and a choice of packages. On average most clients spend around $850 per regular session with me.   
Please contact me to book your session and I would be happy to send you my full price list.
