The Portrait Experience Guide

Exclusively for members of the AR Family

I’ve created this guide to help you get the most out of your photos, and by the time you’ve read through this guide, you’ll have all your questions answered and feel more than ready and prepared for your session. Then, I’ll take care of the rest! Your only job is to be yourself, laugh a lot and let me create photos you’ll love forever.

Topics include:

Portraits start at $500
Engagements start at $550

The Experience

I’m all about creating a memorable experience for your session! When you combine my photographic expertise with posing and capturing images efficiently and my traditional experience as a social worker, you’ll get both gorgeous images and an unforgettable photographic experience! My background helps me provide an environment that makes my clients feel comfortable in front of my camera, keeps the kids engaged and having fun (even if we do have to stop for snacks or let the wiggles out!), and reluctant, camera-shy significant others admitting that the session was “actually fun!”
