Look at the mom in these photos. 
One can't help but feel her joy. 

That beautiful, maverick mama is my Gram Lucy.

She worked full-time, hired a nanny, and paid for private school for her girls.

She also made sure to celebrate her sweet family with professional photos.

The cutie with the head of curls is my mom. (born 1944)

I had only seen a few snapshots of my gram, but nothing like this.

I love that she has lipstick on  -  because that was her full makeup! 

She inspires me every day because she went all-in with her dreams. 

She didn't wait for the perfect time.

Family pictures was another way to celebrate her girls every year.

Gram Lucy had no idea the legacy she was documenting, or the gift she would leave behind.

Even when she was in the hospital for a double mastectomy, this maverick mama arranged for a photographer to go to the grade-school and take photos of her beautiful daughters.

Sadly, the pictures stopped when my mom was 11 years old.

The Pictures

Photographs make the story complete and allow us to carry the moment with us forever. 

They connect us in an instant,
 as only visuals can.

These are some of the pictures I found in a great aunt's attic.

I do this because I can.

YES! My job is to guide you through this image process. You will be guided so you don't have to worry about what to do with your hands or if your hair is sticking up - I gotcha covered! We will work with the light, angles and props to create images you are proud to use.

Yes. Images are lightly retouched - blemishes are removed and skin even-toned. I do recommend natural looking makeup the day of your shoot. Flawless skin is a girl's best friend when it comes to photos. Having your makeup professionally done can give you that extra boost of confidence.  

Do you help with posing ideas?

Do you retouch the images?

 A shoot is usually a half-day which ends up to be 3 to 3.5 hours. Since every business is unique, each branding shoot is custom designed & planned.  The number of locations, types of shots needed all come into play.  Typically, the "hangries" begin to set in after a few hours!  

How long is a photo shoot?

YES. We will take images with adding text in mind. This is great for adding a quote, point of view & especially on your website.  

Can I add text to the images?

YES. There is a contract which outlines exactly how the images may be used, stating the licenses included. The contract protects you as an entrepreneur and gives you a generous margin with the use of the images. The contract gives the photographer permission to use these photos to promote her work, on website, and any advertising including digital, print & media.

Is there a contract that outlines my use of the images?

NO. Most photographers require image credit & charge a fee each time their image is used - I am a PBP who does not. Photo credit is always welcome! However, there are situations when the credit is distracting. This photography is all about my clients and their work.

Is photo credit required?

 Kelley's a burnout prevention coach.

During Kelley's branding shoot, I showed her a few of her images on the back of my camera,

Kelley was so excited about the results that she asked if she could take a pic of the lcd screen with her cell phone. 

 She had to show her friends how incredible her images were
 right that minute.
