Portrait Photo Shoot


Portraits for individuals, couples, families and groups

Portrait sessions are for any individual or group of people who want beautiful high quality photos suitable for large or small prints, wall art or digital/on line purposes. 


Your photography session may take place at a variety of locations; at your home a local park, urban setting or at my studio. If you are not sure where you want to hold your session I’m happy to make recommendations.

What to wear

Clothing is important to the success of the shoot, so if you are not sure what to wear contact me and we will chat about style and clothing options that suit you. Or I will send you information that you can review at your leisure. 

What to expect during your photo session

When you arrive, depending on the location and type of session you chose, we will go through the clothes/accessories you brought and decide what to use. If you have chosen a family photo shoot we will all chat for a few minutes to get to know each other and help the younger members of your family feel comfortable. Then we'll walk around the location exploring the area together and I’ll photograph the whole time to capture candid’s and action shots. When we find pleasing spots we will stop to get some posed shots.

How will I look in my photos?

Many folks are worried about how they will look but I always work with you during your shoot so your body position and facial expressions are flattering. Also, in post-production I re-touch the images to the extent you want. I can change your shape and size and help with skin or any other issues you would like to change. We will discuss how far to go with re-touching so you look great but still look like yourself! 

Other Details

Depending on the type of photo shoot you chose, the session can take anywhere from 15-90+ minutes and renders 20-200 great images from which to choose.

If you would like to have your hair and make-up done by a professional I will recommend a couple local salons who have professionals on staff to help with this.

Please contact me if you would like a price list or want to chat about anything else.

I look forward to working with you!
