Hi there! That's me! Thanks for connecting! I get the honor of creating personal art that brings joy to the home. I have been a student of photography both informally and formally for 20 years. I grew up in Fort Worth, then moved to Washington, DC in 2009. In 2017 I returned with a husband, two girls and a dog in tow. My business began in 2012 after my husband was laid off and we needed extra income. What a joy it has been to watch my passion turn into what it is today. I am unavoidably a creative at heart and I specialize in heirloom cotton canvases and museum quality prints. In addition to those I also create stunning folio boxes and gorgeous albums. I am inspired by this beautiful chaotic, messy, thing we share called life, just as it is. Let's capture it and make something great together.
Your consultation is often our first step. Like a first date we will get to know each other and start to connect and plan so that we can create a theme, select locations, style outfits, and discuss what you have in mind for your fine art pieces. In preparation we will take pictures of interior spaces, take some measurements and consider current decor and existing pieces we may want to complement. You'll want to pre-order as much as you can!
My 'sessions' aren't time limited. We might be traveling, we might be riding horses, hiking, setting up a campfire, feeding a baby, making cookies, crawling through industrial areas, playing at my home studio, or taking a walk through the botanic gardens one idyllic day. Your booking fee covers most locations locally (25 miles of 76108), travel fees apply outside of that area. Additional fees may be required for certain premiere locations (such as the vintage aircraft museum or the courthouse). Normally my assistant Lauren will be on set. The amazing Jessica Batson or the incredible Ashley Watson-Rihel may be on hand to do facials, hair and makeup to get you looking and feeling heavenly.
Design & Ordering session
About 2 weeks (6-8 for wedding) after your session we will get back together . At this session we will view your collection, select images for your artwork, design your displays using the images we took of your home during consultation, review your albums, and place your order. You will also take possession of any digitals & pre-sale artist's choice items at that time. Your complimentary online proofing gallery will also go live at your reveal!
Delivery & Installation
Once your handcrafted pieces are ready (2-6 weeks) depending on the piece, your artwork is delivered. You will schedule an installation time for wall art to be hand delivered locally and professionally installed in your home by Lucas Construction Service perfectly according to the design plan. Installation is not available to Patrons who live out of the DFW metroplex.
