Introducing... Storyteller Sessions



palodurofamily9 copy.jpg

Hello, and Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. I look forward to getting to know you and what brings a smile to your face and to the faces of your nearest and dearest! 

What brings a smile to my face are my two little darling daughters, Marielle and Evelyn, and my sweet stud of a husband, Rhett. Rhett has been stuck with me for going on 13 years now and every day is an adventure! I am so blessed to get to do life alongside him. Our daughters are 6 and 9 and absolutely the apple of our eyes. Nothing brings me more joy and laughter than being their mommy!

Instead of returning back to work after my second baby was born, my hubby and I decided to have a third child - her name is Parties & Poses :-)  haha! We often joke about how much time and effort has gone into raising "her" but look how mature and totally awesome she is!!  Parties & Poses is comprised of two of my passions - Parties, to create events and all of the wonderful details that go into them, and Poses, to create works of art from the photographs I take of my beautiful clients!  My event style is bold, creative, unique, and lighthearted. My  photography style is joyful, warm, candid and personal.

Now enough about me - let's talk about you!























Family Session


Portrait Sessions vary in length, anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour. These sessions take place at one location of your choosing, either in-studio, in your home or at an outdoor location within 20 miles of Macomb, MI (minimal travel fee for over 20 miles). One outfit change is included, time permitting. I will choose 15+ images to finely edit and deliver via private online gallery within 2 weeks of your session date. *Please note this pricing is for immediate family sessions.

Extended family sessions are  $475 and include up to 3 individual families of 5 people per family, additional families and photos may be added to your package for an additional cost.

Senior Session


For Senior sessions please look forward to between 1-3 hours of shooting time with me. These sessions include more than one location if you choose, and multiple outfit changes.  20+ images will be chosen and finely edited within 2 weeks of your session date.  *Please note extended family sessions are up to 3 individual families of 5 people per family, additional families and photos may be added to your package for an additional cost.



With Newborns I like to spend between 2-3 hours with you and your beautiful new family. This allows for feedings, diaper changes, and lots of parent snuggles! These sessions are best done within 2 weeks of birth, please contact me with your due date to ensure availability around this date. These sessions are done in my studio in Clinton Township where I will have full access to all custom made newborn outfits, backdrops, props, blankets, baskets, headbands, wraps, and beautiful furniture pieces for family and siblings to use in their photos with baby. Family photographs are most definitely included and encouraged. 20+ images will be chosen and finely edited within 2 weeks of your session date.

**Grow with me Bundle Milestone Packages available at a discount for Newborn through 1 year milestone sessions

Cake Smash


By far my most popular session! First Birthday cake smash sessions are custom designed to your child's birthday theme or if there is no specific theme, we incorporate favorite colors or patterns. This session is typically done in-studio and includes a custom smash cake from my baker, a full set design (hand-painted backdrop or custom props), 20+ photos of both pre-cake and cake set ups, family photos are included in this package, as well as a print release for your convenience. 

Business Branding Session


Branding sessions are totally customizable to your business.  We will compile a collection of images that tell the story of your

brand that you can use as content for social media, website design, marketing materials and client interaction. Your images will show off your unique personality and style and help inspire trust by helping your customers see the real and relatable person behind the brand. . Personal brand photography is not just a gallery of traditional headshots and generic stock photos - it's a combination of not-so-corporate portraits and lifestyle images. Sessions include up to 2 hours of session time, up to 5 team members, and 30+ finely edited images with print release.
