The Studio

Portrait Studio Photographer

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” – Dorothea Lange

You’ve been wanting that professional headshot for your company website.  You’re looking for whimsical and intense and demure images for modeling.  You dream about a classic family portrait for your living room.  Sometimes the place to get the perfect shot is in the studio.  Studio photography provides many benefits such as total control of the elements (no rain, no wind, no shivering), fewer distractions (no waiting for other people to vacate the area) and convenience (no getting up at the crack of dawn to get the perfect light).  This creates a tranquil environment for you to feel relaxed, comfortable and ready for your closeup.   Also, we can work with a variety of backdrops to achieve the desired looks, and I will apply precise lighting and editing to bring out the best of your features, coloring and personality.  

For headshots, we can achieve a single, high-quality headshot, or we can take more time for custom headshots which will include four images with four outfits and looks.  We’ll review the undeveloped images that day and choose your favorites.  I will edit and retouch your shots and send you the high-resolution file.   

For family portraits, you may want individual photos of your children, a new family portrait or both.  Ahead of the session, we will discuss all the details such as your ideas and style, the images you’d like to capture and tips for wardrobe and prop choices.  On the day, it is my goal to create an atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy your time together so that we can try several poses with different perspectives and moods.  We’ll make some choices from the undeveloped images that day, and within four to six weeks, I will deliver your edited, retouched portraits to your front door for you to enjoy for a long time.

Welcome to my studio!  I can’t wait to get started.
