Maternity Portraits

Demi Moore started the craze...

Before her, no one even thought of taking there portrait while (gasp!) being pregnant. But now, we see the beauty of an expectant mother. It's a joy to behold.

Don't worry, you'll be modest.

Maybe Demi showed a bit more than you'd like to... We agree with you. We don't photograph nudes. What's the point of having a portrait if you won't show it to anyone? Tasteful and modest; that's us!

It's your babies first portrait.

For nine months your babies been part of your life. Why wait until they're out in the cold, cruel world to show that special relationship that you share?Children Portraits

Infant Portraits

Doris's specialty!

Only a mother could take portraits like these! She knows how to make an infant happy and relaxed!

Book and calender style portraits.

We've all seen photographs of the famous babies in flowers images. But they're so much better the artwork is your own new born!

We're not in a hurry.

Babies have their own schedule, and there's no rushing them. If they need fed or changed, that's just fine with us. We won't schedule back to back appointments so you can take as much time as you need.

Bring that special outfit.

Blessing outfits, or a beloved hand-me-down. If it has meaning, you should bring it.

Fun sessions for toddlers.

Red Flyer Wagons, Victorian Bathtubs... your child will have a good time dressing up and feeling important!

Natural settings.

Cobble stone paths, hundreds of flowers and natural rugged boulders with a cascading waterfall provide natural looking settings. Or bring your preschooler inside for a more formal setting.

We're not in a hurry.

Children take a few minutes to get used to the lights and equipment. That's ok, we'll wait till they're ready to give up that perfect smile.

Bring that special outfit.

We have a place for them to change. Change into as many outfits as you want! Grandma took awhile to knit that little skirt, she'll enjoy seeing her grand daughter wear it.
