Let's create a magical experience together!

Become what you imagine!!


This is an opportunity to let your imagination run wild and work with me to create a magical experience. With a bit of costuming and photoshop magic, we can create a unique experience your child will never forget.


Clients can borrow from my client costume closet, bring their own, or we can work to find the perfect costume together.

    With creative sessions, I encourage clients to bring an extra outfit. This way we can plan to spend the bulk of the session on the creative part of the session but still have the option of some time for a few nice portraits.

Common Questions
When are mermaids available?
July and August

Mermaids need warm weather so creative sessions with the mermaid tales are only available for dates in July and August.

What outfits do you have?

I have a creative closet that has a variety of different outfits.

  • Several styles of princess dresses from 2T up to size 14/16
  • Jedi-style cloak
  • poodle skirt
  • Dr. Strange-style costume
  • Fairy wings

These are just the outfits that I've gathered over the years. I also have access to other options available to rent. And I love a creative challenge. Share your ideas and we'll see what we can come up with together.

How should we prepare?

Have fun. This is so important This session is meant to be fun and creative and playful. Encourage your child to imagine and pretend. Twirls are encouraged!
