- Pooneh Y.

"I was nervous about the shoot and worried I didn't know how to pose in the right way. However, Pamela's easy-going demeanor and gentle approach quickly put me at ease. at our next session, I was no longer nervous, in fact, I was excited and couldn't wait to see her use her magic again!"


Before they're all grown-up

The experience at the photo shoot will be full of laughter and fun for both of us. The goal for these images is always to capture the subject in the most genuine and authentic way.  Plus an added bonus: These sessions and the images we create result in an immediate self-esteem boost for teens and tweens.

What You Can Expect

- Michelle S.

"Oh my!!  WOW!!  That was FANTASTIC! You got me all teary! Love them ALL. Will be hard to choose."

Yes! The majority of my bookings are women and girls, but I enjoy working with men and boys as well.

Do you photograph men and boys?

Yes, I do! The majority of my images are in color, but certain images lend themselves especially to black & white. When I find that an image looks amazing in both color and black & white, I will deliver both versions to you.

Do you offer both color and black & white?

We can photograph at an outdoor location, your home or at my home studio, depending on the looks you'd like to achieve.

Where will my photo shoot take place?
