A sign of life is a husband and wife photography, photo editing and retouching team dedicated to building lasting relationships with our clients. Our goal is to provide a fun and memorable experience, along with our beautiful photos that showcase the client’s true spirit and personality. We take the time to understand our client’s personal style and adapt to their individual needs.

We, James and Holly, have been together since 2006 and have spent all of our adult lives searching together for our passion in life. In 2011 we invested in our first intro camera as a creative outlet and began taking photographs of people, places, and interesting objects everywhere that we went… Our hobby quickly turned into an obsession, and we began studying different styles and techniques, really immersing ourselves into the world of photography. Now we want to use our passion to provide for our babies and create the life that we have been dreaming of for so many years.

We look forward to working with you!
