Our Session Features

Our sessions are built with you in mind. That is why we offer:

Online Proofing gallery

We know your time is valuable and coming into the studio isn't always possible. With an online proofing gallery, you can view and choose your portraits from the comfort of your phone, tablet, or laptop computer. This also means you can share the gallery with your friends and family easily! All of our galleries are private so you know your photos are secure.

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 both a consulatation and a viewing session. What this means to you is you will know what to expect before the session, and can see your photos before you buy. This way you can get the best photos possible!

Prints in a keepsake box and Digital Files

There is nothing like holding a portrait in your hand and hanging it on your wall, but we know you will want to share your memories with friends and family through social media and digital files too! 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, and include unlimited printing rights (at the size purchased). This means you can print and share as many as you like in whatever way works best for you!

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!
