meet us

What we most desire is to continually be inspired by who and what Life puts in front of us, and hope to be an inspiration to others on their journey. We've learned as one grows in their understanding to see things in a new light, there is no going back to shadows outgrown, and in this way the camera has become a medium for us to explore deeper within the self to find a larger sense of life that is filled with freshness, grace, and peace.

The CAMERA is an instrument
that TEACHES people how to 
see LIFE without a camera.
-Dorothea Lange

From the beginning it was our goal to create artwork that would not only touch the hearts of our clients, but to help bring into focus more of the beauty and joy in their lives, whether in their families or within themselves, and create an atmosphere where one could feel open and safe enough to share a bit more of themselves with us.

A WARM WELCOME

our favourite things

towards a photographic journey, that continues to inspire them daily. While doing a study of the word "grace" they found the definition: the divine influence in the heart, reflected in the life. And alas, inGRACE photography was born. These days the couple can be found capturing the stories of newborn babes, children, families and couples in Boston, MA, the greater New England area, and Southern California, as well as inspiring other artists and photographers to go deeper within their craft and use the creative arts to find clarity and a deeper meaning of Life. They are currently developing a series of workshops...stay tuned.

In 2006, a sassy blond New Yorker was paired up with a gentle blue eyed Californian at an audition for a Shakespeare festival in the quaint historic town of San Juan Capistrano.  Their love blossomed quickly, as they spent their days performing and producing theatre throughout LA and Orange County, CA. One chilly Christmas in New York, the gentle blue eyed soul asked the sassy blond New York-turned-Cali gal to take his hand in marriage, and the rest (as they say) is history.   Through their creative inspirations and spiritual growth, Life began to take shape in a whole new light, and they focused their artistic vision

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

Whether you are ready to book with us or have questions to ask, we love having the opportunity to chat with you to really get a feel for what you are looking for. We'll discuss locations, clothing, creative ideas, and find out which collection is perfect for you. After booking your session, we'll be in touch to go over all the fine details and make sure you are feeling excited and prepared for the day of the shoot!

YOUR SESSION DAY

Our portrait sessions are typically 60-90 minutes (about twice as long for newborn). Our approach is very relaxed and fun. We love to have a few minutes to get to know children a bit before we begin photographing, which helps them to feel open and safe to be themselves in front of the camera. *This applies to "the big kids" (a.k.a the adults) as well! :-) In the case of rain or children not feeling well, we are more than happy to reschedule your session to another time. We want everyone to look and feel their best!

BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS COMING YOUR WAY

Your images will be ready for viewing in a private online gallery 2-3 weeks after your session. If you have pre-purchased a collection which includes all of your images you will have immediate access to download them. Other products, such as prints, canvas gallery wraps and stand-out mounts are also available for purchase.

COLLECTIONS

Yes! We provide our clients with both Hi-Res/Printable and web size versions of each purchased image, with a shared copyright, for unlimited printing use. We do also offer printing services, however if you prefer to print images on your own we are happy to recommend reputable companies that produce high quality prints. We do NOT recommend printing your beautiful images at places such as CVS, Costco, or even Shutterfly, as they are not able to produce a finished product that meets the standard of professional quality images.

+ will i be able to print my own images?

+ HOW LONG BEFORE WE GET OUR IMAGES?

Typically session images are ready within 2-3 weeks, depending on the time of year. Getting our clients their images in a timely manner is of the utmost importance to us. We send our clients images via digital file transfer (we currently use Dropbox) for instant download. CD and USB options are also available.

Great question! Once you book your session we'll have a pre-shoot consultation and discuss color palettes and creative ideas to fit the look and style of your session. We know this can feel like a daunting process, and we hope to help make it a fun one!!

+ what should we wear??

we're happy to answer any questions you may have
