Portraits

Portraits are an investment that highlights the interwoven moments in your lives. The tapestry of our lives tends to move faster than we think. Our one-year old turns into a five-year old before we realize it. While it is so very true that each stage of our lives is precious it also holds true that you can only capture a moment of time in that moment of time. As your photographer I will preserve your most precious parts of your tapestry for you as well as provide the best experience from start to finish.

Your Portrait session includes:

  • Pre shoot consultations are important so that we can ensure that your portraits reflect who you are. We will discuss wardrobe and portrait styles and this will give us the time to acquire an idea for what your hopes and desires are for your portraits. Your lives are busy, we appreciate that. So, consultations can be through email/phone or if a face to face consultation is warranted such as with weddings then of course we are available and would be eager to meet with you ahead of time.

  • Custom, styled setups from our selection of high quality, simplistic props & of course our scenic and lovely outdoor studio.

  • Online prep guide to prepare you for your portrait experience with us.

  • On-location or at our studio lasting approximately 1-2 hours.

  • I am a perfectionist when it comes to photography so your portraits will be hand edited for perfection and fully retouched. 

  • Each image that you receive will also be available in a variety of styles such black and white, selenium tone & an artistically created rendition.

  • An online gallery that you can view, purchase and share with your family.

 

Prices:

Family portraits          $350 ~ $500

Please note that 30% of the fee is required to book your portrait session with us in order to hold your date and the remainder must be paid on or before the day of the shoot. 

      

The images that are created from your portrait session will be yours to have at no extra charge so that you may have the freedom to print them at your own discretion. However, I would highly recommend that you have us take care of the printing for you. We have established relationships with several professional laboratories across the nation that specialize in portrait printing. If you allow us to take care of the printing you can be assured that the quality of the portraits will be outstanding and will be a product that you will be proud to hang in your home or office.

It’s important that your financial investment results in impressive, high-quality prints, so you want to be sure you’re spending your money with companies that have a reputation for offering solid products and reliable service. Snapfish and Shutterfly are excellent resources especially for calendars, mugs etc. However, with online print companies you are not going to find the same level of quality as a professional photo lab. The image quality that you will see from a professional lab is quite noticeable and frankly worth the added cost. If you choose to have us take care of this for you there will be a small charge but it will not be the extreme upcharge that you will find from other photographers.

 

We will go above and beyond to create an easy going and comfortable environment for your portrait session. We have cold water, ice tea and snacks. On hand we will have extra toiletries such as hair spray, makeup, nail polish and remover, etc. in the event that you need them. Feel free to bring your entourage, we have plenty of comfortable places for them to relax and observe.
