When it comes to proofing sessions, my clients find the ability to see their portraits at various sizes, a key to finding the perfect way to display their custom art in their home. Being that many are use to 4×6 prints, the thought of a 8×10 on their wall seems like a poster, in reality their image can get really lost on their wall. Projecting portrait images, to scale, on their own wall is key to making the perfect size selection. Notice how the 5×7 looks like a wallet print.
Custom wall displays make a bold impact on any room, especially canvas. I LOVE me some canvas.
Proofing sessions are available to all my clients to make the process of creating the perfect wall display for their home.

Only once a year do I offer mini sessions and that is for Mother’s Day. A portion of the proceeds are normally donated to a large charity, however this year after several charity scandals, it brought to light where the donated money was going. So this year I decided to keep it local and make a straight donation to a family to use as they needed. Whether for gas, travel, meds or groceries, I wanted to find a family who was truly in need. After putting a shout out on my Facebook page, I found a local family who’s son Alec was diagnosed Neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer. Thanks to this fabulous group of moms, we were able to send his family a nice phat check. I can’t cure cancer, but if I can help out in anyway, I will.
This year was a tad different, we invited MOM to be apart of the shoot. Not only that, we invited kids off all ages to join us. I saw some old friends and met some new ones, over all it was a wonderful day. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
