Invest in Portraiture

I believe custom portraiture is one of the best investments one can make for their self, their family, their fur babies, their business and for their legacy. Hiring a professional photographer to create timeless, heirloom pieces of art to adorn your home and to be passed down generation after generation documents your heritage.

Yes, you may have hundreds, if not thousands, of “snapshots” floating around in a “cloud” somewhere, but the treasured prints and wall-sized portraits are what your family will cherish and protect forever. They are what families take first when disaster threatens. They are the most treasured possessions, and rightly so. If you take away “clouds” and someday-obsolete CD’s, USBs, hard drives, and the like, what will you have left? Where will all those snapshots taken with your phone or your cousin’s nice camera be?

The investment in hiring a professional photographer can be a shock the first time and for those that do not value professional photography, the talent and years of experience, and let’s not even mention the thousands and thousands of dollars of equipment, or the cost of doing business that a professional photographer brings to the table. Likely, nor do they understand archival, heirloom-quality professional-lab prints versus box-store gift prints.

It’s like eating at McDonald’s vs. eating at Morton’s. Each has their place and each their followers and fans. You cannot expect a Morton steak at McDonald’s prices. You may not even be one to appreciate or want a Morton steak or the experience of dining there. The same can be said for a bicycle vs. a Mercedes–both will get you from point A to B, but how would you like to arrive?

If you appreciate art, photography, and heirloom products, you’ll invest in the experience and create a legacy with a professional, full-service photographer.

Invest in yourself, your family, your legacy.

I work with families and businesses to create treasured heirloom pieces that will fill the walls of homes and offices.

I look forward to working together to create these pieces for you.
