Why C.H.P.


Photography is something I have always loved and enjoyed. I remember having the old 110 and Disc cameras and always being the one with the camera. As a high school graduation gift I got my first SLR a Pentax K1000 which started the true obsession in my life.

I wanted to learn every aspect of photography from developing and printing and more. Working in photo labs for over 9 years while my children were very young gave me the flexibility to spend precious time with them. Photographing weddings and portraits for friends and family is how my career began.

Fast forward quite a few years, we now have been in business since 1990. It took many years of hard work and diligence to keep the business thriving. Many changes in my personal life and raising my three wonderful children is my biggest reward in life.

In 2006 I married my best friend in Disney World. As you can imagine, we are huge Disney fans and enjoyed every minute of our wedding trip with our five children. Don't get us talking about Disney because we will talk forever, we just love it!

Together Carl and I are quite a team. If a child comes into the studio for a portrait and is having a less than wonderful day Carl and I will swap back and forth between shooting and making the little peanut laugh and smile. This helps to capture their expressions and makes parent and child more at ease. Just let the children be themselves. Capturing all of the moments that make them who they are is just the best. The silly face they make, the shy giggle, all of them are unique.

We know that you have put a lot of thought and time into the session from the hair style to the clothing and even the time of day that is best. Then you stress about getting the children here happily and on time. We want you to relax and enjoy the experience. We have created a warm, comfortable home like environment where your children are comfortable and free to laugh and play. We take a mixture of traditional and candid shots. We also offer location sessions which we also love for the beautiful natural light.

The result is fine art photographs that you will treasure forever. While custom photography is not for everyone, our clients appreciate the individual attention to detail, and high quality images that we create.

Time goes by so quickly. These are the moments you will want to remember forever.
