Newborns: As a mother myself, I know how desperately you want to grasp this miraculous period of your child’s life, and capture those moments for all of eternity. It almost seems that they disappear in the blink of an eye: The tiny toes, the miniature fingers, and the all encompassing yawns. Before you know it, they’ve moved onto the toddler years and beyond. Each stage is precious; allow me to help you preserve those moments from today, as memories in the future. You will be able to look at these images and say “remember that moment?”
Prom Pictures: We all remember the “tilt your head and smile” prom pictures of our yesterdays. Why settle for a prom portrait, which is identical to everyone else’s? Schedule your prom session with us, and we will provide you with an enormous selection of poses, consisting of each individual prom attendee, as well as couple and group shots. Bring your friends, and make it a pre-prom party! The session fee is $100.00 for one hour, for up to six individuals; and can be booked at our location, your home, or a local outdoor setting. Schedule early, as these spots are limited, and fill quickly.
Senior Portraits: Your teenager has arrived at one of the most important phases of their life, their senior year in high school. Our senior sessions allow for unlimited clothing changes, and the inclusion of any props or accessories which reflect their style and personality. The session can be scheduled for either your home, or the location of your choice, at any time of year. There are several local outdoor locations which can be used to highlight your student’s individuality and there is no limit to the imagination. These portraits can also be utilized for graduation announcements, thank you cards, college applications, and social networking sites – the sky’s the limit! We also encourage your senior to book their session back-to-back with a good friend; this way they can also do buddy portraits; at no additional charge.
Boudoir Beauties: Boudoir portraits are tasteful, and hint at sexiness. These sessions produce portraits which are sexy, flirty, fun and cute, while working within your own comfort level. Regardless of size, shape, color or age, each woman is beautiful in her own right. Very few of us (myself included) have a supermodel’s figure; your portrait will highlight your assets, while minimizing the parts you are self-conscious about. You don’t have to take your clothes off to be sexy. Clothed, partially clothed, hinted nudity and fully nude can all be sexy. Prior to the beginning of your session, we will discuss what you are comfortable showing in your portraits, so I can ensure that the parts you want hidden, stay hidden. Couples sessions are fun, sensual, romantic, playful and always tasteful. Please contact me, for additional information about either type of session.
Engagement/Wedding Sessions: By allowing me to capture one of the most important events of your life, you are allowing me to create story telling images of the start of your life together. My goal is document your event in a photojournalistic style, while remaining unobtrusive. Your wedding event can only be captured once-I strive to capture the moments which spark that emotional response when you catch sight of the image, and it instantly transports you back to exactly the moment it occurred. I love to photograph weddings; and approach each one as though it were my own. Each ceremony is a celebration full of love, passion and excitement. Each wedding session is built around the individual client’s needs and desires. Please contact me for a consultation, so we can cover these in greater detail.
Maternity Moments: From the moment your greatest hope becomes a reality, that baby-to-be encompasses your every thought. Celebrate with a portrait which captures your radiance and excitement of this special time of your life. (Daddys-to-be are ALWAYS welcome!)
Pets: We all know that pets are not simply a possession; they are an integral part of your family. Capturing your pet’s personality in a portrait you can treasure for all of time is a priceless keepsake of your all too brief time together.
Family Sessions: Allow me to capture your family at work, at play, or any degree in between. Your family is vibrant, energetic and enthusiastic; why settle for a “sit and smile” portrait? It is my goal to capture that moment in time where your emotions are obvious, and your love for each other is evident.
Sporting Groups: Why settle for a canned session, when you can host one that truly shows your team’s personality? Photo sessions can be scheduled for team portraits, individual shots, or any combination thereof, at the location of your choice. Portrait packages can be designed around your specifications, or you are welcome to choose a pre-designed package. Packages can always be customized with as many (or as few) shots as you desire.
Bands: Trying to get your band off the ground? Need a spectacular performance image that will really set your band apart from the thousands of others, who are also trying to get noticed? Schedule a concert session! You will have your own photographer, capturing images of your band at its best. Created group shots are also available.
Events: Whether it is a military Dining Out, an engagement party, a dance performance, or that special birthday celebration, I can accommodate your needs. Just imagine being able to fully participate in your event, leaving the photographic captures in someone else’s capable hands.
Portrait Parties: Be the first in your group to host your own portrait party. Gather four or more of your closest friends and their families (up to four Individuals per group), and for a fee of $50.00 per family, each group will have 20-30 minutes of group and individual photographs taken. Each family will be assigned their own gallery (public, private, or password protected, their choice), and have these photos hosted on line for a minimum of 6 months following their session. Sessions can be formal or fun - your choice. As the hosting family, your family session is free. Please contact me for additional specifications.
1. I always shoot in raw, so as to capture every nuance and all information available, so as to create the most stunning, detailed portrait possible. Every photo is individually processed for the perfect balance of tone, color, sharpness and light. Post processing can include as much or as little re-touching as the client desires. Services offered include skin smoothing, acne correction, and teeth brightening. Substantial post-processing correction may involve additional fees, but is available upon request.
2. Every session will result in an on-line gallery, created specifically for you. This gallery can be public, have a private URL, or be password-protected; it’s your choice. Typically, the gallery will be available within 30 days from the date of your session, and remain on line for a minimum of six months following your session. This will enable you and your family and friends to view and order prints and other products at your convenience. With each image purchased, you will receive a low-resolution, digital copy to utilize as you desire (emails, FaceBook, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc.)
3. Your portrait session can take place within the comfort of your own home, or at a location within the Antelope Valley. (Locations located outside of the Antelope Valley may be booked, at an additional cost). My objective is to be as creative as possible, while capturing your candid emotions in a relaxed, yet professional, environment. The outcome is a portrait which captures your inherent personality, in a stress-free environment. I prefer to utilize natural light whenever possible, as well as the world around us, to provide environmental portraits you will treasure for years to come.
