Costumes are for portraits.

Sophia in her pink princess dress that was originally bought for Halloween but, also made a perfect dress for her portrait.

There's a lot that goes into picking out "just the right" costume. These costumes that you and your child put so much time into are great for parties and trick-or-treating but, they are also one of the best props for a portrait.

And, oh, all the choices:

Cowboy (Cowgirl)


Star Wars character


Princess (So many Disney Princesses to choose from.)

Wonder Woman




The list is as endless as your child's imagination.

This is Ellie (first photo) in her Wonder Woman costume. The portrait was taken last year and because, as we all know, kids grow crazy fast, the costume is too small for her this year.

I'm sure that Ellie has already picked out a new costume but, I'm also sure that she and her parents are happy to have a portrait of this time in her life. When she was 7 and she loved being Wonder Woman and never wanted to take off her costume. She wore it to the dinner table, the store, to bed. They passed it on to a friend who they're sure will get as much love and memories from it as they did.

Here's one you don't see every Halloween - Pinocchio. What a cutie.

These are composite portraits, which means they are taken in-studio and then I add backgrounds, floors, a little of this and a little of that in post production.

Kayden: Princess of the Forest.

I encourage my clients to consider printing their portraits on a larger scale. No art work purchased at Kirklands or Pier One could be more beautiful or meaningful to display in your home than a fine art portrait of your child.

Don't wait.

As a parent of two wonderful, grown-up girls, I know how time flies.

I am always happy to hear from people that want portraits of the dreamers in their lives.

I'm flexible with time and am available to come set up wherever you are or you are welcome to come to my studio.

Please call or email me and we can talk further. P 315-521-3993 E
