Imagine your child...
Your child's innocence can be captured forever in an enchanting hand-colored photograph. Preserving special childhood memories through photography is an important part of any family's history. An archival quality hand-colored photograph provides a permanent image that will be enjoyed for generations. Your finished piece will portray the magical quality of your child's world, so that you may forever remember this precious moment in time.
Creating the images...
In creating my hand-colored originals, I begin with black and white photography. The images are custom-printed on fiber-based paper, then painstakingly hand-colored using dyes, oils, and oil pencils. Each photograph is selectively painted, allowing some of the black-and-white tones to remain.
Settings and props...
I enjoy taking photographs outdoors using natural light. My picturesque acre of gardens, located in Lynnwood, Washington provides the perfect backdrop with flowers in bloom throughout the seasons. I have a professionally equipped indoor studio, as well and can create a special setting to reflect your child's personalityyour child's favorite toys or pets are welcome too. I have a large collection of hats and props available and will also advise you on clothing choices.
Pictures may also be taken on location, in your garden or the beach and are not limited to young children. Any age group works well and generational photographs are a specialty. In addition, anything that is special to you can be immortalized into an elegant, custom work of art. Your lovely home and gardens, your beach house or boat. The people or pets that bring you so much pleasure. With sensitivity and imagination, I can create a priceless memento for you to enjoy and share.
