Hello! Thank you for your interest in scheduling a portrait session with me.
I am a believer in the essence of childhood, a dreamer of believing each child is amazing , an artist, and a also a perfectionist. I don’t just take pictures, I pour my entire heart and soul into creating custom art pieces for your home !
I’m a believer in family heirlooms that get passed on to the next generation. putting items on display in our homes and feel immense joy and love when we walk past them, is something that is truly beautiful. There really is nothing quite like the feeling of looking through an album and reminiscing about those beautiful moments with your family or glancing up at your mantle and practically hearing your children’s giggles and personality shine through your images. Your images belong on your walls and in beautiful albums on your coffee table. They don’t belong on a disc in a desk drawer or hidden away on a computer where no one will ever see them.
I believe that custom portrait photography is one of the most important investments you can make for your family! Your session with Pretty Dreams Photography is custom and unique and is fully tailored to your vision. I artistically edit every image, and each finished art piece is crafted using museum-quality products and archival inks.so your portraits will look exactly the same 100 years from now.
