How long has it been?

All too often, families put off doing family portraits  because the project feels too overwhelming.

 I love walking through the process with you so that you will always know what to expect next.  I'll help you prepare for your portrait session and then help you relax and enjoy it as I gently guide.  I'm patient with children and husbands!

Family portraits you are proud to hang on the wall.

As a mother of six and grandmother to fifteen, I understand the key to a successful session is your child feeling relaxed.  I love  listening to your child's ideas and giving them freedom to express their unique personalities.  

As an artist, I love investing hours digitally hand painting your photographs to transform them into art pieces.

As a trained interior designer, I am skilled at helping you determine which sizes and configurations will look best in your home so that you’ll have personal art pieces you'll proudly display and cherish.
