Photographs are a powerful thing. They tell a story or an emotion of a moment that will never be again. We all know how fast life goes by, so to capture it is not only important for parents to look back on someday, but for your children as well. After my dad passed away, I realized I didn't have any nice family pictures of all of us together. You never know how important a picture can be until the time has passed.
Taking pictures and giving them as gifts to friends and family has always been a part of my life. I wanted to learn more and do more. After 17 years I left the dental field and spent two years taking courses at the New York Institute of Photography to advance my skills and understanding of the business. I have also completed a safety course for newborn photography with APNPI (Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International) along with several other hands on workshops and I will continue to educate myself to better my services for you. I am certified in CPR, first aid and I am insured through PPA.
I have extensive training in customer service. It's not just about taking your pictures, you will get 100% me, quick responses and a fast gallery delivery. I do not overbook myself to make sure you get the best service and not lost in the shuffle.
Children and babies are unpredictable, I prefer not schedule 20 minute mini sessions. I usually toss images from the first few minutes of sessions because once everyone has warmed up those are the better images. Sometimes a child or baby needs some extra TLC. Maybe they are shy and need to warm up to me, maybe they have lots of energy they need release first...Magical things can happen once they have settled. Waiting for those moments are more important than a fast, inexpensive session. If too much time has passed, and a child or baby isn't settling, there comes a point to call it a day and try again in a week or so. As I mentioned I do not over book myself if we need to reschedule. Don't get discouraged if this happens.
Prints are an important part of your investment. Getting the right size or choosing photos for a wall collage can be a difficult task. Once your photos are edited I am always available to help you with your print order. Your session includes all the digitals and you may print anywhere. If you order through your secured gallery I can guarantee your quality. I cannot guarantee the quality if you order prints elsewhere as print labs are not all equal and sometimes downloading and uploading improperly can lead to low quality. Displaying your photos with the highest quality is another perk for hiring a photographer.
If you have any questions about services please don't hesitate to call or email me. I will work hard to make sure you are happy with your session from beginning to end.
I look forward to working and growing with you for all your portrait and print needs.
I am not always able to answer the phone so please leave a voicemail or send me a message. I usually reply within the hour.
