Book your free phone consultation

How far ahead do I need to book?

An EPIC photoshoot takes time to plan and prepare. I like to book sessions 3-4 weeks out. However, if you are in a time crunch I will do my best to fit you in and still make sure everything is taken care of.

Can I just get the digital files?

Absolutely, but why would you want to? My goal is to provide you with products that will last for generations to come! Every purchased digital image comes with a print. The price is the same whether you take home the print and digital, just the print or just the digital.

How long does a session with you take?

Generally my full portrait session can take anywhere from 3-5 hours depending how many people are being photographed, how many makeovers and how many outfit changes.

How long until I get my images?

About two weeks after your portrait session you will return to my studio to view your images. You will select the ones you love to purchase. Once you select the images you love and pay for them in full, I send them off to a professional lab for printing. Turnaround is usually 7-10 days. Any wall art orders will also be placed then and can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks depending on the product.

What products do you offer?

I proudly offer the absolute highest quality products offered to professional photographers. My signature product is a custom-made Italian leather Reveal Folio Box handmade in Italy. I also offer fine art prints framed and unframed, acrylic wall art, and framed and unframed canvas wall art.

Do you only shoot in studio?

Yes as this way, I can give you consistent, high-quality results that are not dependant on the weather being perfect or a location being available to use. However, as I would love to photograph you how YOU want to be photographed, let’s discuss ANY ideas you might have and see how we can make them happen.

WHAT YOUR LUXURY PORTRAIT PHOTOSHOOT INCLUDES

I was a bit nervous about my photo shoot… like I would be out of my comfort zone. I need not have worried at all! Petrina went out of her way at all times, to make me feel comfortable and confident with the whole process. Her knowledge and professional manner made me feel like I was in the hands of a true expert. My photos are incredible… just fantastic! Part of me can't believe I could look like this even on my best day!

My girls & I had our portraits taken by Petrina. I was so impressed with the results that a few months later I also had her take my business portfolio photos.  
Petrina has created such a warm, fun & comforting environment in her studio. My girls & I had such a great time during the session. We absolutely loved being pampered & Petrina made us all feel so at ease during the shoot. 
The whole experience was delightful from the moment we walked in. I could not recommend her enough.
The pictures turned out better than I could have imagined. Petrina has a unique eye for detail and her style is flawless. 
Thank you SO much Petrina. Our house is now decorated with some beautiful pieces of ART.

My portrait session was a birthday gift to myself! It was my first time being photographed professionally, so I was really nervous. Petrina made me feel completely at ease and the session was natural and fun! I love my pictures Thanks for beautiful birthday memories.

When was the last time you loved a photograph of yourself? 

I know what it feels like, to struggle to see your own beauty! That's why I thrive on capturing images of you, that you will adore and want to keep looking at. 

I'm Petrina and I am a Portrait Photographer, married to my childhood sweetheart, Mother to our three increasingly independent little people and lover of ALL things beautiful. I can't wait to meet you!
