Portraits are investments.

Portraits will be handed down to your children when they are grown and then handed down to their children. Portraits should not be stored on a hard drive or a cd. Images are too easily lost in a drawer or lost after a hard drive crash. Portraits should be hung on the wall, placed in an album, or displayed on the mantel.

Investment session

There are several items that determine session fees:

Location of session, anything over 40 miles away increases time
Make up and hair stylist if needed
Number of family members and ages, the younger ones need more time.

Studio sessions are available at Studio 180, located at 180 St. Paul Street in downtown Rochester.

Outdoor sessions can be anywhere.


Full Portrait sessions start at $350
