Creating a portrait in the space that is the heart of your family, and means the most to you and yours, is always a great idea. Clients sometimes wonder whether their home would make a suitable backdrop, but you’d be surprised how much potential we can see that you might not be able to imagine. Often, we only need a tiny vignette to create something truly special and unique.


P.S. We’re excellent at moving furniture around to set the perfect scene, and we promise we’ll put it back!

Our Process Includes

  • Monica and Michael have been taking our family photos since the children were babies, and now they soon will be going off to college! Each memory they have captured has been special and completely unique.  We always look forward to seeing what new ideas they come up with every year!

  • Monica and Michael are simply amazing!!! My last two professional headshots were taken by Monica, she has a way of making you look 10 years younger….I always get so many compliments. They also did a family portrait for us in Colonial Williamsburg, I have it hanging on the wall in our new house…this is something I have wanted to do for years and I can’t help but smile every time I walk by it. Because we love Monica and Michael so much, we had them do portraits of our fur babies Declan and Galen, they look so sophisticated hanging in the “Man Cave”. Thank you, thank you for always surpassing my expectations!!
