PRINTED ART SHOWS YOU ARE LOVED
There's nothing like feeling the heft of a bound album, and watching your kids grow with every turn of the page. Or the joy of walking into a room immediately greeted by your loved ones beautiful, happy faces on your wall every single morning. Studies have even shown that displayed portraits give your children a sense of belonging and feeling cherished, which in turn boosts their self-esteem.
We're thinking of the long run; of your legacy. We create a record of your family history - portraits that your children subsequent generations are able to confidently keep, touch and look at for years because they are created with love by master craftsmen using the finest, archival-grade materials. We want to show you the beauty of investing in real, tangible portrait art.
Interested in booking a session? Our first step is an in-person consultation, where we will design your portrait session with your display goals in mind.
We'll be there to answer any questions, go over logistics and wardrobe, plus you can see and feel our amazing heirloom products.

Props & Digital Backgrounds
In our portfolio, you'll see some very ornate, flowery images - those are digital composites! My actual setup is very simple and neutral so that I can choose an image or two for these fancy Artisan Edits. These were a huge hit last year - if you have a color or flower you love, let me know so I can search for the perfect match. There are gender neutral designs, as well Prior to your session, I will email you an extensive questionnaire where we compile your color and posing preferences.
Props & Outfits
Studio newborn sessions give us the most variety. I have access to a lovely Virginia Beach studio with a dedicated newborn room full of props and lots of wraps to supplement my own stash.
For parents who choose an in-home posed session, I travel light with a small arsenal of neutral toned blankets and wraps and maybe a basket or crate.
