I help people who feel awkward in front of a camera or think they’re not photogenic. I will work with you to create a beautiful portrait that not only shows you at your best but also shows who you are as a person After our photo session, my clients always tell me how relaxed and fun it was and how excited they are to see the photos. The end result is they’re grateful to have beautiful portraits that they are proud to display on their walls.

Signature Portrait Session
Do you have a studio?
Do you use props? What kind of backgrounds do you have?
I don't use props or themed backgrounds. I prefer the focus of my sessions to be all about you and your interaction with your loved ones. Rather than props or backgrounds, I prefer to shoot on location in a setting that is meaningful to you. In twenty years this will say more about you than an artificial item I may have in my studio. Of course, you are encouraged to bring personal items of significance to your session.
Can you help me choose a location?
Yes, I have a list of recommended locations all over metro Atlanta. We will discuss the portrait consultation. Please see the Portrait Process for more details.
Can you recommend a makeup artist?
Yes, I know several, good makeup artists. If you would like to use one, I can make all the arrangements for you. You will need to allow an hour for makeup. Their fee is not included and will be an add-on to your portrait session.
How far in advance should I schedule a session?
Portrait sessions generally require 2 weeks notice but cannot be scheduled more than 4 weeks in advance. Portrait Collections may be scheduled up to 8 weeks in advance. Please inquire if you have a specific event for which you want to insure my availability.
How do I book a portrait session?
Click Reserve Now under your preferred portrait session to pay your session fee and sign a portrait agreement. Next, you'll schedule your Phone or Design Consultation. If you have a preferred date & time for your portrait session include it in your comments, otherwise we'll schedule it during your consultation.
Do you offer packages?
Yes, I offer "create your on collections" which allow you to get up to a 30% savings when bundling products together. My portrait collections are designed to offer the best value while allowing the most flexibility. Best of all, you get to choose exactly what you want without being locked into purchasing products you don't need. Inquire for more details.
How much is an 8x10?
Gift Prints, 8x10 and smaller, are not the focus of my studio and are only available with a collection, wall art or album purchase. An 8x10 portrait is $75 or less depending on which Portrait Collection you choose.
Can you come to my event and take portraits of my guests to sell?
I offer a variety of event photography including candid coverage as well as portraits of attendees; however I do not shoot on speculation. My fees must be paid in advance to allow for adequate staffing and equipment for your event. If you'd like to offer your guests the option of purchasing portraits, the cost should be included in the registration fee or as an optional add-on which is paid in advance of the event. Please call to discuss the logistics of how this may work.
