Portraits, Headshots, Seniors, and Author Photos


Sessions are $225 (plus tax) for ten or more fully edited photos and last about an hour. Soon after the session, I'll send you a link where you can view and download high-resolution copies of your portraits that you can use for resumes, social media, your home, and more.

Where will we take photos?

Wherever you want! As long as it's not dangerous. 


Portraits turn out best when taken at a location you like. I strive to get the photo you want and am willing to go where you think the best location may be.



Don't know where you want to go? No trouble. I'm also happy to help choose a location. Whether it be the Rhododendron Garden at Point Defiance, along Ruston Way, Downtown Tacoma, or Titlow Beach we can discuss locations that we think might get you the portrait you want.

What to expect

A portrait photo session is all about you. My goal is to work with you to get the picture that you imagine.


Before the session, we'll have already worked together on choosing a location and time, as well as discuss what you may want to wear. Once on location we can get to know each other, talk about potential shots, and then get shooting. If you have examples of portraits you love, I'd love to see them to help us get an idea of what you want.


Sessions are around an hour long, so this will give us plenty of time to try different poses and ideas. Throughout the shoot, I'll show you the pictures I've taken and from there we can fine tune our final vision for your photo shoot.
