We have limited sessions!
Sessions last about two hours, and we capture a variety of poses, leaps, costumes and backdrops, which result in unique and stunning images.
A few days after the session, families return to the studio to see the images, select their complimentary print, and purchase other artwork, if desired.
There is no minimum purchase required, but most parents consider these portraits as priceless family heirlooms and usually spend $800 - $2000 for artwork. A la carte prices start at $395 for wall art and metal prints, $595 for albums, and $645 for matted presentation folios. We offer a variety of packages, which provide considerable cost savings.
