what a beautiful way to start a life
You know you want portraits of the kids as they are changing so quickly, but what are you going to do with them? I help you by starting with the end in mind. This means that before I even pick up a camera, we will have a plan for where and how these photos will hang in your home or the story we want to tell in your album.
Do you have a tall, skinny spot above your fireplace? Let’s create an amazing statement image to hang there. Perhaps you want to start a family gallery incorporating older images with the new portraits you are commissioning. We can make that happen. Are you moving soon or live in a house with no wall space? Telling your story in a luxurious, custom-designed album lets you capture and preserve this stage of your children’s lives.
We will go over all the ideas in your one-on-one Design Consultation.
DOn't feel overwhelmed. I got you.

Help with home design before the session so we know what our "focus" will be
Trust me, as a mom to 6 grown "children", I know that you will never, ever regret the investment of a professional portrait of your little one. This will become your most prized possession, the thing you would grab on the way out of a burning house. The artwork that makes you happy to do life with these crazies every time you see that portrait. The one thing in your house that becomes more valuable with each passing day and outlives the sofa that will end up on the curb with a "free" sign. The one thing that makes you smile 40 years from now. Artwork with your munchkins in it.
"Debbie is the sweetest most talented photographer. She went out of her way from picking the best location to creating the most beautiful family portrait and photos of our kids. We had such a great time too!"
"Best photographer EVER! She has been capturing our families lives from the beginning of our family. You won’t find a more personalized experience that really captures your family."
"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our portrait. Gavin points and names everyone each morning and evening. Rylee blows kisses to the portrait.
I just smile every time I see it and thank God for blessing us with such a beautiful family.
This brings me so much joy ! Thank you!"
We can plan a time for me to drop by to see your wall space and what we are aiming for in our session. It will help us figure out which colors, style and location would work best as well as what sizes would work. This step has proven to be SO very helpful for people as we then know what type of look we are going to need, what sizes anddirection they will need to be for your space. If you'd rather, you can send me photos of your wall space, but with me being there, I can help with design.
I want the scoop on your kids - who's bossy, quiet or the rebel. Understanding this helps me capture their personalities and relationships. In the Design Consultation, every question will be answered:
clothing, your investment, areas of your home for portraits.
Contact me to set up a few minutes to chat on the phone.
Relaxed session where everyone will feel comfortable, beautiful and have fun. Since we know what we are aiming for, we will be spending our time and energy reaching our specific goal.
All decision makers should be present as this time is reserved to finalize your order. A special slideshow with curated, artist favorites will be shown before we start the guided selection and order process. Using state-of-the-art software and photos of the walls in your home, we will show your portraits scaled onto your walls, which solves the problem of what size to order; not too big, not too small, but just right! Using your goals from the consultation, we'll guide you every step of
After retouching with a fine tooth comb, I will design your artwork and deliver it to you upon arrival.
Together, we will plan out your wall space.
Statement: Perhaps you want one large Statement Piece for above the sofa or fireplace, a piece that can stand alone, making a statement. "This is what is important to our family!"
Complimentary: Two or more wall art pieces that complement each other to tell a story.
Gallery: A wall gallery with a collection of pieces that work together.
A variety of sizes and finishes, just like with the wall art,
all are of the highest quality and come with a lifetime guarantee.
Instead of a flashdrive being forgotten in a drawer, images that get corrupted or lost, prints with greenish-gray faces, blurry or to fade in 2 years, I will cherish your memories just like you do. I can do a home visit to see your wall space, colors and style and plan your custom session to fit your home so you can decorate with love. With my art degree and years and years of styling and photographing, I will help every step of the way.
What are the benefits of full service care?
If you could only see the behind-the-scenes footage of one of my crazy shoots, you would see that I do whatever it takes to get the shot. We might be pirates walking or jumping off the plank, spinning through the field like a ballerina or surprising each other with a big bear hug.
Those kids on your website just look like they are so sweet and posing for the camera!
You might THINK that you only want the digital images, but I promise you that you will be happy with the expert taking care of you, giving you the highest quality service and products of the most important artwork of your home. You will receive a social media -sized image of everything your purchase, whether for the wall or from an album. You will be able to share images of your cuties, but also have the highest quality artwork that will be guaranteed for life. I am the expert at color calibration, exposure manipulation, cropping and use only the absolute best professional labs in the country. I will be showing you a hand curated selection of artist choices and helping you choose which sizes would look best on your walls. When children see themselves on the walls of their home, it helps them realize how important and loved they are. Those smiles and hugs that you see on the wall will bring a smile to your face when you start the day full of to-do's and when you are exhausted at the end of a long day.

You don't have anything to worry about because, I promise you...I have seen it all and honestly don't even remember one time where I didn't get "the shot"! Your only job will be to show up and have fun and love on your family,
My kids are... well....a little crazy and might not behave to get a decent portrait. How do I know if they will cooperate?
