I don't for a minute believe I can save the world one photography business at a time, but I would be disappointed in myself if I didn't try to do my bit to make this world just a little bit greener and safer.

I charge $350 an hour of all my metro Detroit portrait photography. I edit, enhance, adjust and have the high resolution, ready to print images within two weeks and as always, you own them. The only exception is family photography that is $400/hr. because anything with over two people will require a LOT of extra photoshopping in order to produce the amazing family photos you know and love.
Most of the Oakland County senior photos I photograph are outdoors on location for a contemporary and natural look. I love working with Detroit area high school seniors to capture their personalities so thoroughly. When you see all 250+ images, you'll see photos of what they looked like when they were young and photos of what they're going to look like in 10 years and everything in between. So much is changing so quickly and I love reflecting that in their senior pictures. I'm based in Troy, Michigan and I photograph a lot of Troy High and Athens High School seniors for their senior photos. I also spend a lot of of time in Rochester and Birmingham photographing their high school seniors. I specialize in unique, fun portraits and my clients usually either LOVE or HATE having their senior photos taken! I also specialize in photographing Metro Detroit high school senior's with special needs.
