Welcome to Images by Ceci.

I believe every image should tell a story.

During an individual, family or pet portrait session with me, we will have fun! For many people, having a portrait done creates a stress level akin to that of public speaking – but not with me. I want my clients to relax and enjoy the experience, have a few giggles, and be thrilled with the results – your story. It is important that you enjoy the experience of your session as well as the end result!

When there are children involved, it often means just allowing them to be themselves, play a little, or enjoy a toy for a while. Children, pets (and larger animals like horses) do better if they are well fed, rested and wearing clothes (or collars, halters etc.) that are comfortable and familiar. Trust me, this is NOT the time to introduce a brand new outfit, shoes that pinch, or gear for an animal that it has never seen before. Actually, when I think of it – this applies to adults as well!

I’ve had children, cats, dogs, horses and other creatures in my life. I’m comfortable with them, and they with me. It makes it easier to capture natural expressions and actions so that, when you stand back and look at the photos afterward, they remind you why you love your mate, your children, your pets – small and large. And why you want to remember and celebrate those milestones that mark the story of your life.

Harley was born August 13, 2015 and came to live with us in October. He adores people and children. If he can’t bring a smile to your face, no one can. Harley is a Standard Poodle and is a very welcome addition to our family and my studio. WELCOME HARLEY!

The fine print…

Your images are captured in a RAW format – that’s like the unprocessed film photographers used before digital photography came to the forefront.

After our session, I hand-pick the best images from the many that were shot, and process (develop) each one to bring out the best in each image for you. Then we look at the proofs of the final images together so that I can answer any questions you may have and help you select the right size and finish of print to suit your home, office or other display location. You’ll also have choices for albums or books. And so much more.


Hi. This is me – your photographer and owner of Images by Ceci.
