Capturing Childhood at Verdi Portraits

Oh my how the time goes by so fast… One minute they are taking their first steps, the next they are moving out on their own!  Capturing those in between moments is my passion and art.  I love creating opportunities for kids to show off their personalities, and I’ll be there to capture it so you can cherish it forever!

Children sessions are 30 minute Limited Edition sessions that I schedule once a month.  In the fall and holiday we’ll have special events for the whole family!  Check this page regularly to see what’s coming up, or better yet, join my mailing list to be notified, or follow us on follow us on Facebook!

Traditional Santa Portraits

It’s my favorite time of year when Santa comes to visit the studio and so many of our families have been coming back since their children were babies!  Our special Santa has become very popular in Washington state, so our time is limited in 2017 to Saturday December 2nd, 9-11am, and we are very honored to be hosted by the Northwest Art Center, located just downstairs from the old studio location.filmstrip

The Magical Santa Experience


It is my hope that every child believes in magic forever and that is why this Magical Santa Experience is so very special to me.  In the studio, children become part of a story with Santa Clause and his magic where they will help him prepare for his very special deliveries on Christmas Eve: they’ll check the list (twice!), help paint toys, pack his magic bag, and then plan his route across the globe.  After all that work, Santa gets hungry, so of course cookies and milk are in store and finally they’ll settle down for story time.

This session is choreographed specifically for the creation of your handcrafted storybook album in which all images are artistically edited with Santa’s magic!  Your personalized album is sure to become a favorite heirloom to cherish every holiday season for years to come.
