How does the portrait photography process work?
Step 1: Schedule a time for your session. Most sessions take place on Saturday and Sunday afternoons but other times are available. To book your session click here.
Step 2: Choose a location. I specialize in on location photography, which means the world is my studio. Choose from anywhere in the Greater Rochester Area or Ithaca during specific dates in the summer.
Step 3: Pick out your clothes. Clothing is really important, but it doesn’t have to be stressful! Even simple color schemes make for excellent portraits.
Step 4: Enjoy your fun, stress-free session experience.
Step 5: Proofing. I’ll walk you through my zero-pressure, zero-stress proofing process.
Step 6: Customize your order. Prints, products and digital files are all available a la carte. A complete price list is available by clicking here.
Step 7: Enjoy your beautiful photos for life!
