Our Session Features

Our sessions are built with you in mind. We want you to have a fun session, because when you have fun it shows in your portraits. It is easier to have a fun session when you know you have great photos coming to you on CD or Flash drive and you can print as many as you want! Our sessions include:

Online Proofing gallery

No high pressure sales meeting, and no need to purchase any portraits you don't like. With an online proofing gallery, you can view and choose your portraits from the comfort of your phone, tablet, or laptop computer. Share the gallery with your friends and family easily, and know your photos are secure with a private link. You, of course, are always welcome to come in to choose your photos if you like and use our expertise to help you decide.

Complementary consultation

Whether you are planning a wedding, a shimmer session, or a family session, you will always get the most from your session by planning ahead. That is why your paid session includes a complementary consulatation so we can help you get the best images with the least amount of stress.

Prints in a keepsake box and Digital Files

Digital files are wonderul, but there is nothing like holding a portrait in your hand and hanging it on your wall. That is why all our portrait sessions include any portraits purchased both as a print and in digital format on HRCD or flash drive at the size purchased. These digital files include unlimited printing rights (at the size purchased). Print and share as many as you like!

Our Excellent Customer Service

We strive to answer all questions, concerns, and inquiries within one business day, so you never have to wait for an answer to your questions. We like to treat our clients like our friends and our friends like family!
