Toddlers & Children Portraits: - Collections Start at $150.00 - Request A Quote
Children are curious, spontaneous, silly, energetic, and above all, completely unpredictable. So how do you plan formal family portraits with a rambunctious two-year-old? First, scrap the 'formal' part. Let go of any expectations of cooperation and think more along the lines of (loosely) controlled chaos. But don't worry – I've got it all under control! Above all, I expect your photo session to be laid-back and fun. Don't think of it as "picture day" as this will only result in unnecessary stress (for both you and your children)! Children are encouraged to run around and play, jump on the bed, get a little muddy in the backyard.
If parents are not participating in the photos, they are encouraged to relax, grab a cup of coffee, kick back with a magazine. My goal is to capture connections, spontaneous expressions, and natural smiles, not the Sears Portrait Studio forced smiles of yesteryear! The results are the most genuine when the children are able to forget that the camera is even there.
Most of these photo sessions are on location, available at the location of your choice or you can come to my studio (Hubert, NC) for more formal headshots or dramatic lighting effects. If you do not have a location in mind, no worries I have several places that I can recommend that will make for an exciting and interesting portrait. I love urban sessions that we can conduct downtown Jacksonville, amongst the cool texture of the buildings. My sessions are casual and relaxed, so you don't have to feel rushed.
Each session is customized for your needs and I consult with you and discuss any concerns you may have and prepare you for your upcoming session.

Weddings: - Collections Start at $1550.00 - Contact Us
As a wedding photographer, I love getting to know each couple that I work with and listening to your vision for your wedding day. I work to capture the special moments throughout your day so that you can recall the emotions of your wedding and not just the scenes. I'll arrive at least 2 hours before the ceremony to capture the scenes of you and your groom getting ready for the day. I also take traditional photos of the family and bridal party after the ceremony. (Additional Information)
