Custom Coffee Table Books

We have been making Coffee Table books here in the studio for the past year. The quality has been getting better and better, and now we are offering deluxe coffee table books of about 100 pages, containing almost all of the images from your wedding or portrait session, printed full bleed with archival inks and papers.

All of our weddings currently get a Proof Coffe Table Book containing all of the proofs. Our new Deluxe Books are so good they can replace a standard album.

This is the perfect album for those looking for a unique display of their images that can sit out on a table as a work of art.

They can be covered with a designer dust jacket or done in a variety of book cloth covers. Below is a recent example book from a Fall wedding. The pages contain from 1 to 6 images and are custom designed and printed in the studio. We can also span two pages with a single panoramic image. The photos below will give you an idea of how they look.

Infrared maternity portrait

Maternity portraits can be a once in a lifetime opportunity with a very small window for success. We offer 8-9 month sessions which include pregnancy/belly shots as well as you and your partner shots. We can also document your pregnancy showing the progression of your belly over the months. Of course the next step would be newborn images. This image is an infrared pregnancy portrait from this mornigns shoot.
