I am a full service photographer.
What does this mean? I have a full blog post on that here!
In short, it means I do all of the work for you! I don’t believe it’s enough to just hand you a USB and hope you figure out what to do next. Instead, I make it super easy for you to enjoy the images of your family!
The beautiful thing about physical products is the fact that they ARE physical. You can see, touch, and enjoy them easily.
Digital images must constantly be pulled up to view.
Physical items already sit on the shelf or hang on the wall, which means your eyes are naturally drawn to them every day.
In contrast, digital products are easily lost, even ignored.
Whether you are ready to design a full gallery wall or hang one new frame, let me help you document your family’s legacy. Heirloom art will last over the years and serves as a beautiful, classic way to display your family heritage.
Are you overwhelmed about the process?
That’s totally understandable! I walk you through each step, from planning the location, what your family should wear, and what types of products will best suit your home. After the session, I assist in ordering, either in person or virtually, and even help you hang your framed prints in your home!
Did you know?
I personally review each image before I send it out to print and again before I pass the print on to you, ensuring every image is of the highest quality to protect your investment.
What types of products do you offer?
Folio Box With Matted Fine Art Prints
The folio box is the ideal presentation product, easy to display and store! You will receive a handcrafted box with a linen or leatherette cover containing a selection of 5 to 20 elegant, matted prints ready to display in a frame, on an easel, or gift to family and friends. Add a USB drive for a truly complete experience with the benefits of both print and digital!
Over time, I’ve seen many people order prints only to procrastinate on actually getting them framed and on their walls, so I’ve taken an additional step to simplify things for you. With a wide variety of frame materials and colors, I’m sure we will be able to create the design you’ve always pictured!
Custom Album Designing
I also offer album designing – albums aren’t just for weddings anymore! Deluxe albums are handcrafted in Europe and are available in sizes 8×8 up to 12×12 inches including your choice of faux leather, linen, velvet, or acrylic photo cover.
Albums are a great choice for high school seniors, families, and weddings. You may not always have room on your walls, especially if you have an open floor plan – but you’ll always have a shelf or coffee table to display an album!
Professional Fine Art Prints
How do you determine quality? One key is consistency. I have been using the same professional print lab for over SIX YEARS. What does this mean for you? When you place your order through me, you can trust you will receive beautiful bright and vibrant images that match what you saw on your screen!
While I do provide standard style prints including wallets (a favorite for high school seniors), my real passion is providing fine art prints that stand miles apart others! Fine art prints are one of my favorite products to showcase either as part of a folio box or in a custom frame.
Premium Archival Quality Canvas Wraps
If you’ve ordered a canvas on your own from somewhere like Shutterfly or Walmart, you probably aren’t a big fan of canvas – and that’s understandable! Whether the corners fell loose a few months later, or your child decided to use it as a bongo drum (with less than stellar results), canvas wraps have received a bad name in recent years.
Let me show you the difference between a professional canvas wrap and a consumer level canvas!
My premium canvas wraps arrive professionally mounted to a solid wood structure, never just stretched around a cheap hollow frame. What does this mean for you? They are guaranteed to never sag or warp (with correct care). My lab is also one of only a few labs in the world to be G7 Color Certified. This is the industry’s most prestigious award for color management and consistency for vibrant, true to life images!
In addition, the archival quality canvas is treated with a protective UV coating, making it resistant to fading over time. Your memories will always be as beautiful as they day you put it on your wall!
Make sure you back up your memories. Don’t just download them on your phone! Order a folio box or deluxe album and receive a matching USB with your purchased images.
If you’re not quite ready to settle on a frame, no worries!
I provide quality custom packaging to ensure unframed prints make it to their destination safely!

I’m also happy to share ideas of exactly how to display your prints and other products in YOUR home during your virtual viewing session!
Why should I order products through you?
To get technical on you, online and drugstore photo labs use inconsistent color profiles, incorrect contrast settings, and auto “enhancements” intended for photos taken on low quality and outdated cameras. This results in discoloration (too orange or green or purple), pixelated and dark prints. Amanda Jackson Photo has a great visual guide for you here!
Most importantly, ordering through a professional service ensures your pictures will stand the test of time. There’s nothing worse than discovering a precious family memory has faded to a dim brown or yellow. We’ve all spent a day pouring over scrapbooks with our parents trying to discern which family member is which!
Finally, you can trust that I’ve been working with the same professional lab for over six years. I have complete confidence in the service they provide, and I pass that along to your family.
