A Peek Inside the Studio



As I celebrate my 3rd year inside the studio things are getting a sprusing up.

I have learned so much about myself as an artist and photographer during this time. I have also learned a lot about what my clients needs are and how I can best serve them.

I want a client to feel valued and welcomed when they arrive and I will do my very best to create not just amazing images but also a memorable experience for them while they are here.

Well my studio was not reflecting this...My prop stash was taking over and making the space feel cluttered and messy.

Not to mention as part of my journey I have realized many of the props are not truly my style or represent my work. That being said the huge undertaking of culling and destashing of unused items is underway.

BUT most excitingly, is we have FINALLY built a designated prop closet. Which in turn makes for a designated waiting room for my valued clientele.


Keeping true to my style the new look is Shabby Country inspired, and I am sure you will agree a very inviting space indeed...With the addition of drapes, the waiting area will double as a changing area as well....We still have a few touches to add here and there but I am excited to invite people in to my new little slice of "Our Country Home"


This piece is not only GORGEOUS and functional but means a great deal to me...It belonged to my FIL before he passed and I was trusted by my MIL to give it a new look and new life as a place to keep all my "bits and pieces" I need during my sessions...From bobby pins, hair pieces to posing bag clamps, you name it, there is a draw or cubby hole in this rolltop desk.



During the sorting process I gathered together all my lovely maternity pieces...This is but a peak at the selection I have pulled for an upcoming Mini Maternity event for next weekend...I supply the Wraps, Robes and Gowns, and also have on hand some pretty shiny accessories to add those finishing touches to each mommy to be...It is all just part of the service offered in the studio.

AFTER THE CAKESMASH? MILESTONES FOR OLDER KIDS




Just because your little one has celebrated turning ONE YEAR old does not mean the milestones stop. I love seeing them come back each year for their Birthday sessions. I totally count them as a "MILESTONE PACKAGE" event.


To be able to capture the new smiles and big personalities as they start becoming their very own people. Sometimes serious, other times super silly. Each session is customized to suit the little person celebrating their big day.


So drop me a line via FACEBOOK and get their Birthday on my calendar NOW!

Maternity 2018


With the new year I am excited to push forward and find area's of my work I want to focus on improving.

This year one of those areas is Maternity.



 I have always loved belly photos but have struggled to find "my maternity style" until now.



With the help of a gorgeous mommy-to-be model,
I was able to explore the direction I want to go to capture this very special time in the journey to motherhood. 


I think you will agree the results are as lovely as my model.


Simple lighting and all about the belly.

NEW!! USB Jump Drives



With the changing technology not everyone is equipped for CD's. And with rural internet not always download friendly for the user, we decided that Jump drives would be a great option for our business.
They are reusable, easier to carry without risk of scratching or getting snapped in half in your purse, and lets face it look AWESOME.

I wanted to be able to keep that personalized touch that our CD's had with the custom labels.
So this is the final product.

You get a 16GB swivel USB Jump drive and a clear key-chain with one of your photos on one side and our business card on the other. But the key chain is not just for the "pretty", it makes the jump drive a little larger and harder to loose, you can also attach it to your keys and always know where it is. And with my contact information on it, makes it easy for you to contact me to make your next appointment.

Next was working out how to offer these without raising the price of each session, which to me made no sense since the USB will be used over and over again, so I decided on the one time charge for your first "USB" with your next session and then you simply bring it with you each visit, so when your edited images are ready I can add them and either mail (shipping price does apply) it back to you or you can come pick it up just like you did for the CD's.

Where is the print release?
It is a convenient file on your Jump Drive that can be printed at the same time as your photographs.

For those of you that are existing customers and do not have a session coming up soon but would like to get all your old session transferred to a USB, we are offering this service for just the price of the USB until the end of FEB 2017.
