Family Portrait Photography | Individual Portrait Photography
sessions are the ideal location for your family portrait for many reasons.
First and foremost you don't have to worry about the weather. No matter
if it's burning hot outside, freezing cold, or pouring rain your studio
session can still go on as planned.
Lighting is another consideration. Unlike an outdoor shoot where the sun is the light source, studio lighting is fully adjustable so I can put
just the right amount of light exactly where I want it. And good lighting is
what makes a great portrait.
Your Location / Outdoor Sessions
Portraits can also be created at a location of your choosing. This is ideal when you have a specific look in mind that cannot be achieved inside the studio, and is perfect for senior and activity related portraits.
How It Works
Click the button below to schedule your free pre-session meeting where we'll plan and discuss your upcoming portrait session. We'll go over style ideas and then hone in on the look that you'd like to achieve. Once we've got the overall look we'll figure out the clothing, hairstyle and makeup needed to get us to that look, and set the appointment for your session.
Schedule Pre-Session Meeting
When doing your makeup for your portrait session you should apply just a tiny bit heavier than normal. This is because the camera does not pick up makeup in the same way that the human eye does, and because makeup can sometimes become somewhat muted in the post processing of your images. More info about makeup.
This Portrait is no snapshot. It's no selfie. It is you as a work of art.For studio sessions there is a changing room with vanity station where you can change up your hair or makeup in between looks if you like.
For outdoor sessions I bring along a popup changing tent to give you privacy while changing looks. The changing tent is very convenient, and avoids the awkward changing clothes in a vehicle or driving around trying to find a restroom to change in, which takes away valuable shooting time.
Props (toys, musical instruments, hobby interests, sports equipment, etc) are not only welcome they are encouraged.
After Your Session
Around 7-10 days after your session your photos will be ready. I'll reach out so we can set a time for you to stop by the studio to pick up your fully edited digital photos.
While you are here you'll have the opportunity to review other photos from your session, and if you like you can purchase digital versions or print versions of any of those photos as well.
Small well behaved pets are welcome in all packages and count as a family member.
