Working with you to ensure a portrait within your budget and personal vision is always the first step. The fees will depend on the number of subjects, dimensions required, clothing, hands, complexity of background, and inclusion of pets. But, whatever the size, the portrait will radiate color and beauty.

The journey begins with you, the client. Your choice makes the difference. I am always interested in talking to someone who is enthusiastic about portraits. If you are, call me!

Thank you for your consideration.
