The Storybook Experience

Our goal is to make your portrait experience so much fun and your images so amazing, that you can not wait to tell your friends about us! From the first phone call, we try to ask just the right questions, so we can get to know you and capture exactly what you are looking for. We will take the time to help you plan clothing and answer any questions you my have. Whether you want a family session for those yearly Christmas cards or to decorate your home with beautiful artwork, we can help you every step of the way.

We understand how hard it is to relax and be yourself when you are being photographed in a public space, like a park. So we built an outdoor portrait park here on site, so that our clients would have a place to feel comfortable and we could create a variety of unique vinettes. We also have an indoor studio so that we can use dramatic lighting and create formal portraiture, as well as photography babies in a gentle environment.

Your portrait session will be relaxed and fun. Young ones will have time to explore and families can interact. We take the time to get natural smiles and love candid shots as well.

One-two weeks after your session you will come back to the studio for a View & Order session. At this time you will see your images projected on a big screen in a beautiful slide show. We will help you choose your favorite images and help you pick out just the right products to meet your needs. Whether it be creating birth announcements, holiday cards, special gifts for family or decorating your home, we help you find just the right images and products to make your heart happy.


Frequently Asked Questions

When will I get to see and choose portraits from my session?

When you call to book your session, we will also schedule your View and Order Session.
