I love family portraits. An opportunity to capture your family makes a lastingly memory for many years to come. I have a unique approach to creating family portraits in a way that captures the family but also the fun candid moments that make for great images.
- I have extensive experience with children of all ages and as a father myself I know how to manage the photo session around those young minds. I create a fun environment and it allows everyone in the family to feel relaxed and enjoy the photography process.
- When you book a session with me the first thing I do is discuss what you are looking to achieve with your portrait session. Haven't had a portrait session before? No problem, I can suggest location, what to wear, what it will be like, and fun ways to be creative.
- I shoot family sessions with natural light, meaning I do not use a flash except for very rare occasions. I have a professional portable studio lighting system that is useful from time to time as well but for my style natural light is perfect.
- Portrait session typically last 1 to 1.5 hours and with young children I try to speed up the process with a mindset that those curious minds do not always last that long.
- Processing the images takes about a week and the final, edited photographs are delivered via USB stick or online download. A secure, password protected, gallery is created on my website so you can share with friends and family.
- Prints are available through my website and hand selected labs print the images and send them to your doorstep. I also print up to 16x20 inch images utilizing my own personal, color calibrated, printing technique. Please note, if you opt to print your own images I cannot guarantee the lab you choose to print your images to match my exacting color matching process, nor can I ensure they will crop your image properly.
- Two packages are available but you are not limited to those options. I can create a custom session based on your needs.
$295 - 1 to 1.5 hour family portrait session, online web gallery with ability to purchase prints from my selected labs or from me personally.
$350 - 1 to 1.5 hour family portrait session, online web gallery with ability to purchase prints from my selected labs or from me personally, and you get a USB stick with all full resolution edited images (or online download).
