Thanks for visiting our website; we appreciate your interest in our work.  We are a husband and wife team who launched our studio in 1997.  For the past 25 years, we have served the Upstate with quality photography backed by professionalism and friendliness.  Ron is the primary photographer; Gretchen is the production manager.

What Makes Us Different…

We realize you have many choices in investing your hard-earned money on photos of your children or family.  It’s common to think that purchasing image files is the best option, but in the long run, you are simply committing yourself to doing all of the post-production work yourself.  Where will you print the images?  How will you crop and retouch the photos before printing?  Do you have access to enhancement filters and effects?  How will you finish the photos?  Do you know a professional framer?  In the long run, will you have the time and resources to turn your images into finished pieces that you can enjoy in your home or will the images that cost you hundreds of dollars largely sit untouched in a drawer?

We offer a complete turn-key system at our studio:  from session pre-planning to the moment you hang the finished product on your wall.  We personally photograph each session, help you pick the best images, guide you through options and finishes, and often custom frame your pieces in-house.  Every decision is tailored to you.

We do understand that sometimes electronic images are the best choice in our digital world.  We can always accommodate the images you need for sharing via social media, creating greeting cards and announcements, displaying in digital frames, etc.

Our Style…

Style trends in photography come and go, just as they do in fashion.  While we seek to provide portraits that are “up-to-date” with current trends, we like to focus on a classic style that will stand the test of time.  We want to produce a portrait that you will enjoy just as much in 20 years as you do today.


Quality, professional photography at an affordable price is our goal.  We can work with most budgets – just let us know how you plan to use the photographs so we can work together from the start.  Portrait sessions start at $55/studio and $85/location (per hour).
