Where Art Meets Portraiture
Check out the gallery and See for Yourself
Ardent Photography specializes in artistic portraiture. I allow the scenery of your life to be the backdrop of the portraits that will hang on your wall. Whether it is a park full of vibrant foliage or your cozy living room with you in your favorite recliner.

Reasons to Have Your Photograph Taken by Ardent
  • Your choice of locations, no generic backdrop.
  • Natural lighting
  • Capturing Moments not just poses.
Portrait Sessions include
  • Camera Time at a rate of $180 per hour
  • Location of your choosing within 20 miles of Lakewood (travel charge for greater distances)
  • No limits on wardrobe changes, time permitting
  • Digital developing of your images
  • Some editing (like erasing the big zit that popped up the morning of the shoot)
  • Online gallery of your images that you can share with family and friends (available within a week after your shoot)
