You captured our family in the most perfect way! I can't wait to share all the beautiful images. You made it easy for us to show up as ourselves. Thank you for that.

My first love is outdoor portraits! I am most inspired by the capturing the beauty of our relationships with our loved ones and the natural world around us.
THE PATIO PROCESS
Your portrait session is only one part of the Patio Portrait Experience. We take pride in guiding you at every step in your portrait journey to ensure that the path to creating your custom artwork brings as much joy as the images themselves.
Every Patio Portrait Experience begins with a virtual consultation with your photographer. We will learn about you and your goals for your portrait session and guide you on wardrobe and styling options.
On your shoot day, we will arrive early to familiarize ourselves with your home and your chosen shoot locations. Though your Patio Portrait session can be scheduled at any time of day, we particularly love shooting in the late afternoon for gorgeous sunset light.
After online review of your images, your custom artwork will be delivered to your home. We generally have your wall art and albums to you within 3-4 weeks after your portrait session.
Going to Jamaica was a dream for my husband and I. As we were celebrating our 20th anniversary of engagement with this trip, I thought this could be a great souvenir. We combined a memorable moment at Bob Marley's childhood home with beautiful pictures. Chapeau!
