Ever have one of those days where you look in the mirror and think, 'Hey, I look really, really good'?

Then ask yourself this: when's the last time photos from such a day really captured how good you looked? Your mirror wasn't lying to you—the average camera just isn't going to show you at your most flattering.

That's where I come in.

I like pretty things. I like making people feel pretty, and I like making people look pretty. (If you're male, we can substitute handsome for pretty.) You want to look your best, of course—and there's nothing I want more than to make you look your best, too. I'll find you the best light, the best angle, the best pose, the best expression...and your portraits will look every bit as gorgeous as your reflection in the mirror on those really good days.

If you don't feel like you look your best on the day of the photo session, no worries! I post-process every photo I give you, which means that you can rest easy about dark circles, sudden breakouts, or 5 o'clock shadows.

While I want you to look your absolute best, it's crucial that you look like you. I'm careful never to retouch to the point where you look unnatural and alien...or where your friends ask, "Is that really you?"

Bring glitter, sporting equipment,
your bow and arrows, or just a book!

The shoot is about capturing who you are, so have fun with it! Bring a musical instrument you play, sporting equipment to swing around (just not too near the camera), your collection of vintage hats, a stack of old books—anything that strikes your fancy.

This isn't a yearbook shoot or a mall studio—your session can be whatever you want it to be. If a standard smiling headshot is your ideal, that's great; if that's not your style, let's try some artsy poses, glamor shots, silhouettes, jumping pictures, or anything else that comes to mind. I'm easygoing and open to ideas, so let's talk about what you envision!

The session itself is only the beginning—the adventures continue in Photoshop as I enhance each of your photos. I can promise that I'll be looking at each shot individually, thinking about how I can edit it to enhance the mood. No mass production!



To keep costs down for you, I shoot entirely on location rather than in studio. Not convinced you'll take away quality portraits without a studio setup? Give the galleries a chance! Almost every portrait you'll see was shot on location with only natural and available light.

Shooting on location also gives you far more options for backdrops. The Boise Train Depot, Kathryn Albertson Park, the BSU campus, the Boise Greenbelt, Julia Davis Park and the rose garden, downtown Eagle, and many downtown Boise locations have all yielded striking, customized results.

I'm always open to other location ideas anywhere in the Treasure Valley, too. If you have a favorite café or just really like your own back yard, let's give it a shot! Still need help choosing a location? Check out the blog entry here.
