This gallery is available for 2 weeks, please download in a timely manner, and back up appropriately.

While we capture many images during your session, you will see only those images selected by your photographer, the artist, for previewing. We carefully render each image to ensure maximum artistry and technical perfection. Images with eyes blinking, heads turned, duplicates, etc. will not be shown and are removed from our archives permanently after the artist rendering is complete. Due to the nature of my hand editing techniques, there may be variations with color, tone, and temperature. It is up to the photographer's discretion to edit images how they see fit.
