Many people think "why pay for photos when I have a phone full of them?" Having portraits done with Jamie is not just about getting a photo that's not blurry. It's about the feeling of confidence induced through the event of being the center of attention, modeling outfits, highlighting talents. It's a chance to be creative, laugh and feel the VIP vibes. It's about the experience. The product of a professional photography session not only brings joy to those in the moment, but to family and friends for years, even generations to come. That's sharing with your kids, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren...and well you get the point. How many services or products can do that!
So, what does a joy spreading, confidence building, memory making keepsake experience cost?

Soothing and calming time plus feeding breaks and diaper changes are uncontrollable variables.

Portrait Sessions are perfect for those looking for an individual session to highlight your personality, showcase what makes you...you, or to convey a style. For example, you may want to start or add to a modeling portfolio, create a persona for website/social media, or document dance, sports, or special skills in an artful meaningful way. Newborns are an especially perfect reason to schedule a photo shoot.
The Portrait Session makes a great gift for teens, tweens, and new mothers. It is a chance to show the world who you are in a fun and safe environment. The Portrait session is a wonderful way to build confidence and my clients always walk away feeling like rock stars.
