...Birth Photography...
One of the most important days in your life is the birth of your child. This is both a very personal and emotional experience, one at which I can capture perfectly for you
I worked on a Labor and Delivery unit for a little over five years. I am very comfortable in labor and delivery situations and have NO judgments with whatever way you decided to deliver.
There are many times when we want our spouse or family member to capture this amazing day but when the time comes they are too excited to get the perfect shot. My work in this area is extremely tasteful, and captures a day that can never be relived. I sit in the background snapping away and you won't even know I'm there.  Please contact for price

After lots of thought I have decided to change a couple things. Starting July 1st when you get your CD of images they will be low resolution images. This means that you can print a 4x6 a still have a great looking picture. If you are looking for prints larger than a 4x6 you will be able to purchase all of those through me at a great price, and all of my prints come on a styrene mount.  

Every professional photographer receives this question from a client at one point or another: “What is the difference between your prints and the prints I get at the local one-hour photo?” The simple answer to this is everything!  Not all prints are created equal. When you take your pictures to a print retailer who caters to the public (target, wal-mart, costco, ect..) they operate with the “quantity, not quality” business model. They turn down their color vibrance and saturation setting to maximize their output of pictures.  This results in inaccurate colors from how the photographer actually intended the image to print. Blacks tend to not be true black, greens tend to be on the yellow side, and flesh tones are often overly pink or orange. Black-and-white images see the most trouble with inaccuracies because special materials and processes are required to print a true black-and-white image correctly. The materials are also different. The discount labs usually use thinner, lower quality papers than a professional lab.

When you order a large print from a local retailer, it does not look how I intended it to look and that is a reflection of my work. I take pride in all of the work I do and I want the prints you put up in your home to reflect that.  Through a professional photo lab custom prints are made with archival quality materials, including the highest grade photographic papers, and are also individually printed and calibrated to the photographers’ specific color standards.

Each day our society becomes more and more digital. I want to be able to always give my clients their pictures on a disc to keep forever, but I also want my clients to only have the best, and I feel this is the best way to do that.

With photography, nothing rings truer than the saying, “You get what you pay for.” Therefore, I invest in my products so that my clients benefit from the best quality and value available for their own investment.


If you would like your cd to come with High resolution images it is $75.00.



Because everything is better with a picture. . .
