I am known for my sunset portraits as well as the bright colors in my photos. Your session will be outdoors about 90 minutes before the sunsets.
Generally, we will take over 100 photos over the course of 60 mins or so. I will then pick out at least 40 or more of the best of the best for you to view. I often show many more for you to pick.
The location will be picked after I speak to you via a complimentary phone consultation. We will discuss your likes and preferences and go from there.
What should you wear?
Anything that makes you feel confident and will make you feel your best. Solid colors generally look the best in an outdoor setting as well as colors that compliment the setting. If your chosen session is in a big open park with lots of beautiful green grass; something solid green might not be the best choice. If you have any questions just ask. I do have a Pinterest page with some ideas on there.
Makeup - Matte will look the best. Please avoid makeup that makes your skin shine or products with SPF in them as the sunscreen tends to create shine in photos. Avoid heavy eyeliner it will make your eyes look very heavy in photos.
I have some favorite locations you can choose from or we can discuss your favorite locations.
Seniors - bring as many outfit choices as you want for your shoot (we will do as many as we can for the amount of time we have for your session.) I do have a portable pop up dressing tent so you can change.
When can I see my photos?
Since I do not work out of a studio. We will meet about a week after your session for the viewing and ordering of your photos. If you are from out of town; I do have online options we can discuss.

I am a print artist. I have all my products printed at high-quality professional photo labs to achieve the best colors; whether your choice is a large Canvas hanging on your wall or an heirloom album that you can keep for generations. Digital images included with any album or wall art.
Yearbook photo - included with any purchase
I actually will size your yearbook photo and let you digitally download it to your computer to send off to the school. Over the years this seems to work the best so parents or seniors can add in quotes before sending off to the school. If you need me to do it. I will gladly help you or do it for you.
How long will it take to get my Prints after ordered and edited?
Archival quality prints do take longer due to the quality/time the professional lab puts into it.
Museum-quality fine-art prints - generally 4-6 weeks and if framed up to 10 weeks.
The Luxury line Framed canvases can take up to 7 weeks
My Albums are from Italy and generally, take about 2-4 weeks - sometimes longer depending on the season.
I get just as excited for you when your order arrives at my house. I call the minute they land on my doorstep.
