Portrait sessions include Families, Children, Maternity, Couples and Seniors.

Portrait sessions are geared towards capturing the "Imago Dei" that is in your children, families and relationships... recording special moments and memories in a meaningful and beautiful way.

Portrait sessions are typically 1 hour long, and at a location of your choosing within the Columbia area (usually outdoors).  Some popular locations are downtown Columbia, MU's campus, Shelter Gardens, Rockbridge State Park and the Grindstone Nature Area, to name a few.

We will work together to choose a time of day when the lighting is ideal (usually morning or early evening), and that works with your family's schedule.  At this time I am offering flexible week-day scheduling options (Monday-Friday).  If a Saturday works best for your family, I can put you on a waiting list to be contacted when a Saturday option is scheduled.  I plan to do 3 to 4 total Saturdays per year, so hope to schedule all interested families on those dates.

In any photography session, I enjoy incorporating different props (at your discretion), and also love to incorporate your props and ideas.  I am also happy to give suggestions in advance for styling your family (clothes and accessories, etc.) for your session, at your request (and is included in the price of the session).

My goal is to give you the end product of a set of images that are customized to your personalities, style and liking.

The photo session fee, which includes the 1 hour of the photographer’s time and talent, is $100.  Print collections start at $75 and digital collections start at $125.  Two weeks after your session, an on-line gallery will be available to you and your family so that you may select your photographs and share your moments.  You will have two weeks to place your order.   E-mail for more information on collection pricing.
