Portraits for a Lifetime


Making cherished portraits of you and your family is a special event in your life. You want to know that you’re working with an experienced professional who can take care of your needs from beginning to end. We have the experience, background and knowledge to create family heirlooms that will capture timeless moments forever - I guarantee it.

Here’s the rundown of the basic process:

Step 1) We decide when and where we’ll do the shoot. We’ll discuss your outfits and goals for the session.

Step 2) We do the shoot - and celebrate afterwards!

Step 3) Within one week, you get private, password-protected online access to a complete set of low-resolution images from the shoot. You are free to download and share them however you like. There will be several hundred, at least. While they won’t be professionally retouched, they’re definitely good enough for you to study before the next step:

Step 4) You choose between 5 - 10 of your favorites as Finalists for me to apply my 30 years of photo editing and retouching skills.

Step 5) I then professionally retouch each Finalist image by hand and with painstaking detail. You’ll be astonished how the images go from great to FANTASTIC!

Step 6) You then choose which of the retouched Finalist images you wish to print or download, according to the price schedule described below. You can order individual prints, or you can order popular print packages.
