I accept all major credit cards, cash, checks and paypal.

*$25 NSF fee on any returned checks.

You will be presented with the fine art images in a slideshow set to music as I guide you in selecting the images that you can't live without, and then you order. It is important that anyone who wishes to be part of the decision making process is present. Please come prepared to make choices at this appointment.

Q. Will you work with my budget?

A. There are several packages and products to fit into most budgets. Often, a client will fall in love with a handful of images then realize they love more than they had expected. I take this as a sign that I have exceeded their expectations. I have many options for you to get all of the images you love including image boxes, digital negative, coffee table books, and so much more. I realize that custom portraiture is an investment and I am honored when clients choose me to create artwork for their family, Which will be heirlooms for generations to come.
