Q: How do you give your images that impressive vintage look?
A: There are several different ways I achieve my signature style. Lighting, wardrobe, even a humble prop like an apple or book can lend the desired atmosphere. Also, my post-processing is unique.

Q: I grew up watching The Wizard of Oz with my mother; can you take some over-the-rainbow-inspired portraits of me so I can surprise my mother with custom wall art for her home for Mother's Day?
A: What a wonderful childhood memory! Yes, we can certainly capture some of your most meaningful moments from that amazing movie, recreating the look and feel with you as the star!
Q: I have some vintage cameras in my collection; can you create a still life using them so I can hang the art in my home?
A: Absolutely! I love creating intriguing still life art. That is a great way to showcase meaningful collections without taking up shelf space (or having to dust!). Still life art is also a good way for different family groups in one family can “share” family heirlooms: we can make a beautiful piece of art and each member of the family can have his or her own copy!
Q: Can my wife and I be pictured with our trained therapy dog?
A: We welcome well-behaved animals into our studio! We have had several animal friends in our studio, even a fully-grown duck!
