---I am currently on hiatus while we relocate and am only accepting small jobs for the time being.---



What kind of photographs do you take?

Portraits, pets, commercial, headshots, events etc.  Feel free to email me to discuss requirements or other options.


Do you photograph weddings?

At this time I do not take wedding photos. Your wedding is a spectacular day and requires the best in photography services. While I'm certain that I would contribute wonderful images of your big day weddings are just not something I specialize in. There are several area photographers who make it their sole priority to cater to your wedding. If you are looking for a referral please feel free to contact me.


Do you accept freelance jobs?

Of course! Freelance/commissioned gigs  are my business. Upfront written contracts are required. These can include personal events, corporate functions, or nonprofit. All nonprofit entities are entitled to a substantially discounted rate (sometimes only paying necessary expenses) with proof of nonprofit status. 


I don't live in Putnam County. Do you travel?

Yes. However, any traveling outside of 60 miles (one way) will incur a travel fee. I am available for out of state traveling as well.


What do we wear? What should I expect?

A well styled shoot is highly important. This is why I offer phone consultation upon booking.


 *Sessions are catered to your needs. Please email the specifications and I'll be happy to send you a quote.


What are your terms and conditions?

Terms and conditions are typical. However, if you'd like to review them before booking just send me an email and I'll be happy to send you a copy.


How long does a session take?

Typically family photo sessions last about one hour.  However, there is no time limit. This allows me to continue to photograph until I feel there is an adequate selection of beautiful images.


What forms of payment are accepted?

Cash or check is accepted for the session retainer. *There is an automatic $25 fee on all returned checks.



Every effort is made to produce beautiful photographs. If there is any reason you are not completely satisfied please let me know. I take great care and pride in growing my business and want my clients to feel content about the choice they make in choosing me as their photographer. Refunds are not given when an image CD is involved as I have no way of knowing if copies have been made. However, if you are dissatisfied for any reason at all please let me know immediately.

Where else can I find you?



Do you have references?

I sure do and I would be more than happy to get you in touch with them. :)


Are you interested in working on a collaborative piece with a fellow artist?

I LOVE (picture my super ecstatic happy face here) working with other artists and super creative models! It keeps my artistic wheels moving. If you have an idea just forward it to my email -


Are the photographs on my image CD available for commercial use?

You must first obtain permission before using any images for business promotion of any kind. A license fee may apply.


Interested in my graphic design work?

Please email your inquiries and I'll send you a link to view my complete collection or read more here.


Do you offer wholesale on your art/design series?

Yes. I'm experienced with wholesale and can provide you with a quote. I'm currently looking to expand into Ohio. If you are a boutique or gallery owner looking for products I would love to work with you. Please email details to
