You need portraits. You're too busy to do it yourselves or you' want something beyond your standard cell-phone shot. You want something professional to show off and hang in your home or keep in an album. It doesn't matter the occasion, getting portraits done can be for any reason or purpose.

My goal as a photographer is getting you comfortable with prompts and cues that makes you genuinely laugh, smile, and be absolutely in love while still getting those portraits, as well. I tell the story of you. I capture your most honest and true selves because I find that to be more beautiful than your typical 'cheese' smile. 

Sounds like you? Well, continue below and find out how you can book me!

Philadelphia Portraits Photographer

Hello!

I'm so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your wedding! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 20 while attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia. At the time, my major was in Media Animation, but like most college students, I ended up going another direction. It started with a photo displayed on the walls. A beautiful autumn day and couple walking in the park. That piece of art drew me in like it was painting. The rest is history. As an artist, my life revolves around capturing little life's moments just as they are.

Working with Sabrina was such a great experience. She was flexible and understanding when our plans changed suddenly. Our photoshoot was so easy and comfortable. The end product was just what we needed. We've gotten so many compliments on the quality of the photos. I can't wait to work with her again!

Working with Sabrina was such a joy! I loved my  pictures so much and received a ton of compliments! She made the whole thing really comfortable and easy for me since I've never done a professional shoot before. I plan on doing it again soon!

"I felt and looked beautiful!"

 I want to hear everything—things about your family, how you met your significant other, what made you decide to get photographs, and if you like Zelda or Mario.

The first step is when you send me that email or fill out the contact form inquiring for a session. Tell me your ideas, plans, and what you're hoping to gain from this session. Whether it's family portraits, Senior year photos, or a 'just because I feel pretty' session for yourself! Portraits can be for any occasion be it solo or groups.

LET's CONNECT

Once your date is reserved, we'll connect to start chatting about possible locations for your session. 

If you're not sure about where you would like to take your photos but you have a general idea of the look you would like, just let me know because I would be happy to recommend a few locations based on your aesthetic!

LOCATION

If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.

I've put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!) You'll be able to coordinate your outfits for a perfect portrait session.

WARDROBE STYLING

On the day of your session, we'll connect to make sure the weather still looks like it's going to corporate. We'll exchange numbers and finalize our meeting location. Please plan for your session to take about two hours from start to finish, especially for larger groups or smaller children.

Essentially, it should take no longer than an hour, but you can never be too careful. 

the session

After the session, I'll share a few previews for you to enjoy and share with others online. Then it's a two to three week waiting period until you receive your entire gallery.

I edit every image myself adjusting lighting, fixing exposure, and retouching the image for a finished look. Your gallery is then delivered to you via email with all the trimmings. You'll be able to download, share, and even order prints directly from your gallery.

I'm proud to offer my clients a variety of ways to turn their images into keepsakes. Wall-mounted canvas prints to decorate your home, beautiful handmade albums and more.

Plus, I offer a lifetime guarantee on all products so you never have to worry about the quality of your investments fading over time! What a special way to remember this season you’re in!

keepsakes

WHAT TO EXPECT –

One of the best ways to make your memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

Our albums are handmade and crafted with longevity in mind. All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the session day.

ALBUMS

One of my favorite products that always wins families over is wall art. In today's busy modern world, we seldom have time to ever appreciate photos in our own home because we so often rely on social media to do that for us. Sure, getting a few hundred likes on Facebook or Instagram is great. But what about at home where you can appreciate them daily?

It's been proven that a child's self-esteem boosts tremendously when they see themselves hanging on a wall or displayed in some manner inside the home. There's something beautiful about being able to walk by a portrait of you surrounded by your loved ones or just existing blissfully with a smile on the wall.

Your walls needs portraits. A home without pictures is just an empty shell. Add warmth with beautiful wall art framed and handcrafted by the best in the industry.
