The Experience

I loved how everything was organized in the studio and everything was set up and ready to go before we walked in. It made me feel more comfortable that we went over everything before beginning. I think the preparation of everything made the shoot go very smoothly. I was amazed by Dorothy's experience and ability to soothe my baby. (Maybe even better than I would be able to!)

After your session, you will come back to the studio for your reveal and ordering appointment.

Together we will decide how to display your images on your walls, tables, and social media based on your personal needs/wants.

Prior to Your Session


When you decide to book a session with Dorothy, she will schedule a pre-consultation call to discuss your session. She wants to learn your goals for the session so that she can tailor the session to YOU.


Which room in your home do you plan to hang your portrait art? What should everyone wear? During this call, Dorothy will guide you through the process, and answer all your questions so you enjoy the experience, knowing that everything has been covered from the very beginning throughout the process.​

Heirloom Products

Approximately 2-4 weeks after your session, you will come back to the studio. You will sit down on the couch, and view your images for the first time on the TV. Dorothy will help you decide what images you want to display on your walls, tables, and online.


She offers a variety of products. Her clients tend to fall in love with her leather-bound or acrylic albums and her wood prints. She knows how difficult it can be to choose what images to display where, which is why the best part is that she am there with her professional experience to help you. After your wall art has arrived, she can even have someone come to your home to install it!

Collections begin at $990  and Wall Art begins at $190.

Session Fee ~ $300

The session fee covers your pre-session consultation, professional hair/makeup for mom {when available}, set and cake for cake smash, access to the studio wardrobe, use of designer props, professional hand editing of portraits, and the time and talent of your photographer to create heirloom imagery for your family. 


A signed contract, as well as your paid non-refundable session fee, is required to reserve your session.
