The Studio

My studio is located in Grayslake, Illinois.
I have various indoor settings available, all of which are pet and people friendly.
If an outside location is wanted, I live on seven acres with access to a pond. It is a great natural setting with various trees, flowers and natural surroundings.


I have access to some very pretty and unique locations. I am also available to come to your house or a location of your choosing.


The Sessions

If possible, I prefer to meet with you and everyone ahead of time. It gives us a chance to meet and introduce ourselves. I like to discuss the type of images you are looking for and where you would like to display them in your house or office.
A time and location for the shoot is scheduled. On your arrival everything is set up. If we are on location everything is set up ahead of time as well. I do not limit the time of the photo shoot, but most animals and children have a short attention span, so figure about 1/2 an hour for the actual shooting time and usually 1-2 hours for the whole session.

The Final Art Piece

Proofs are available within two weeks and may be accessed through my website. When ready, we can then discuss what images you would like and confirm the size and placement.
The prints take approximately two weeks. The prints are done in house.
Everything is archival and of the finest quality.


I am available to help you with framing decisions. Hand made frames from old barn wood is available as well as modern and classic frames.
