"My husband was nervous about how he would look, he came out looking very handsome (no surprise to me). I was not nervous because I know how wonderful it is to work with Doc. He has a great way of putting you at ease and getting "you" to show up!  My daughter was not nervous, she was enchanted with Doc and his glasses!" - Jennifer H.

When you were growing up, did you see printed photos of your family around the house? Were there albums of your grandparents and great-grandparents that you looked at and ooohh-ed and aaahh-ed over? The answers to both of these are yes, for me. I still have many of those photos and albums. 

Like me, you've probably considered having all of those prints scanned in so you can have an electronic archive. After all, we do live in the digital age!

But what about that portrait that was hanging on the wall? What would happen if that got lost or damaged? Digital is just not the same.

One of the things I hear most often is "I'm not good at smiling for the camera!" Another is "I don't know how to pose." Do these sound familiar to you? Are you nervous about getting in front of the camera? Are you worried that your eyes will look strange or your smile will look forced?

That's most of us. We want the memories and the images, but we're nervous about getting it done.

My job - believe it or not - first and foremost is to help you feel comfortable. Sure I'm going to capture your image. But that's the mechanical part. The biggest part is discovering who you are so that I can see that and my camera can see that. That's why one of my favorite hashtags is #PhotographyIsRelationship.

When your session is over we continue the process of evolving your images into works of art. Whether you choose embellishment or take the ultimate step of having your artwork handpainted, you find yourself experiencing the anticipation of your artwork existing for years, decades, and generations. The artwork we create together is a legacy which you and your family will treasure.
