I understand that custom photography is a substantial investment of your time and money. I want to make sure your photographs not only reflect the personal style that I've worked so hard to develop, but also that you are satisfied with the photographic products in which you will invest to make your home beautiful. Customers typically spend between $500 and $2500 (and some spend even more) for their custom artwork, ranging in products from luxurious Canvas Gallery Wraps to custom-designed Photo Books.
