NO SMOKING OR VAPING in or around studio. We have pregnant and nursing mothers who come with their babies and children for portraits. There is an area for smokers about 50 feet away from the studio. None of our photographers are smokers. Smoking & vaping NOT permitted in studio, office or on front porch of studio.
Babies have changing sleep patterns. Naturally, the best time to schedule their portrait appointment is when they are fully awake. But, this may change by time of your portrait session. I can open the studio as early as 9am if this helps for photographing your baby at a better time. We can also try rescheduling for a different day or for earlier or later time the same day when possible. Let's team up to work this to help ensure the best portraits.

At conclusion of your portrait session, if you are not happy with the images I shot for you, you don't have to accept the images and you don't pay for the portrait session. I will show you all images on 42" computer monitor if in studio or on 7" 4K camera monitor if shooting on location. With the 7" 4K camera monitor when I'm photographing your outdoor Deluxe Portrait Session, you may more easily view your images. You may select your favorites and even request any special retouching or other enhancements. Your images will be uploaded by the next business day for viewing and downloading the full resolution 42+ megapixel JPEGs with copyright release to you.
Top Class Portraits Sessions
I schedule up to three Top Class Portrait sessions per day at most! This helps ensure you receive maximum portrait photography attention and customer service. Our portrait customers are all REQUIRED to give permission to use any and all photographs from every session we shoot for you for posting on my websites, Facebook, Twitter for public viewing as well as public viewing in the form of printed samples and slide show presentations in public places. If you don't want to give me this permission, I regret I will not be able to provide my portrait services to you. Portrait Club coming soon! Portrait session JPEGs provided to portrait customers at 300 pixels per inch, saved as level "10" baseline standard, a valid ICC profile embedded and in the sRGB working colorspace.
Here is Portrait Session Order Form (PDF) for printer-friendly viewing you may complete now and provide at studio or complete before your scheduled portrait session at studio or at outdoor location.
Deluxe Portrait Session:
This session designed for high-end portraiture where attention to detail and taking time is important for the highest quality photographic images. Whether shot in the studio or outdoors, I provide a Deluxe Portrait Session for up to two hours. In this two hour time, you may have as many clothing changes as desired as long as time permits to ensure you receive all the poses. Your Deluxe Portrait Session may include two outdoor locations of your choice as long as both locations are within 15 miles of the studio and both locations within 5 miles of one another. Up to three locations if you want to include the portrait photography area behind the studio. May include up to eight people. I will provide you with at least 15 different poses. You will receive at least 40 full-resolution 42+ megapixel JPEGs which have been touched-up and enhanced and are all personal-use copyright released to you! These will be the best images from your portrait session. You may select them yourself if you wish at conclusion of your session. After I have completed all enhancements, I will post link to your Google Drive Portrait Album on the SESSIONS page of this website by next business day where you may view and download your images. Deluxe Portrait Session images receive additional retouching as deemed necessary by retouch artist. Ask about any special retouching you would like done to see if it is included in your session.
