Fall Colors

Fall leaves tend to peak the first two weeks in October; a popular time for family and senior portraits. We photograph at the most colorful location available to us to ensure vibrant images for your wall. It's always a good idea to dress warm, as the fall air can be chilly!

Double - Sided Wallets and Accordian Albums

These new items have been a huge hit already with clients looking for a unique way to share images with others. Both come in custom tins for protecting your images in your pocket or purse. We can add the name and/or age to the double - sided wallets as well!

Looking for a way to display your holiday greeting cards?

We received one of these hangers as a gift and had to order some to have on hand for our clients. What a great way to showcase festive cards from friends and family!

It's the Little Things

It can be difficult choosing just a couple images to share with others from a portrait session. We are excited to introduce two new products for your purse or wallet to showcase your images!

Our durable double-sided wallets are a great choice if you can't decide on just one photograph to share with friends and family. A set of 24 comes in a custom-designed tin for 48.00!

Wallet-sized accordian albums are also a wonderful addition to your collection. They hold 12 images enclosed with a magnetic cover. A customized tin is included for safe storage. A total of 13 images for 50.00!
