I have over 30 years of experience in marketing and communications, but my role started as a graphic designer, grew to videographer, manager, specialist, etc. I have a Journalism degree from the University of Maryland.


My philosophy on pricing is simple. I DO charge a sit'n'stay fee (most chain services "waive" it) because that is what you are truly paying for - getting the kids/pets to sit still and smile/pant. And getting candid moments, quality shots and composite services — that's where the talent is and that's what counts. I don't charge ridiculous prices for prints because I know you can go to any online photo service and pay loads less and still get quality prints. After all, they all use the same processing labs! In fact, I encourage you to buy the CD with all your images or download your photos yourself.
