Thank you so much for your interest in my work! It is an honour that you have chosen me to photograph your family. :)
Offering a generously discounted Outdoor Family Photo Shoot with a free custom print is my way to introduce myself & my work to new clients. It also allows for your family to enjoy the "photo shoot experience" with very little commitment.
I have been photographing professionally for 20+ years, having photographed over 2000+ families and literally 1000's of children. Prior to becoming a photographer, I worked as a Model Scout for the top NYC modelling agencies (Elite, Wilhelmina's, etc..). It was during this time that I developed my passion and eye for portrait photography.
At your Family Portrait shoot, I will be photographing your family in various compositions... individual portraits of each child, the children as a group and the family as a whole. My aim is to create a beautiful collection of portraits for your family. My shooting style is very casual and fun. While shooting, I will be encouraging your family to be silly and goof around. I believe that the best portraits are those that capture a family laughing together and having a great time! Some portraits will be more quietly posed, some more fun & candid.. but I can confidently guarantee that all will be beautiful.
Following your shoot, you will be able to view your 40 - 50 beautifully edited proofs within a password protected online proof gallery**. This gallery also functions as a shopping cart. From this gallery, you will place your order. Your print will be shipped to you via courier***.
In addition to the free print provided with your shoot, you will be given the opportunity to purchase additional images in digital file (jpeg). I offer artistically edited, high resolution digital files within Collections (packages). Collections start at $295.. While any additional purchase is not required, it is always welcomed.
Looking forward to meeting & photographing your family!
