Lifestyle Shoot Information
(babies, engagements, high-school seniors, families, kids, pets, etc,)
Without a doubt - I love taking "people" photos! I have just as much fun doing these sessions as I do taking my own "artsy" photos. I am pretty sure that is because I try to add a bit of art and a bit of whimsy to these sessions - just like I do in my personal photos. And I have willing models!
Lifestyle sessions usually last around an hour. They include a wide variety of photos. Some posed family shots. Some fun & playful artistic shots. And of course some candids!
I typically leave photos as natural as possible, although I am not against touching out something noticeable like a stain or a telephone pole.
I always chat with the client in advance to learn their goals and desires. I also love to coordinate props and talk clothing to make sure the photo results are extraordinary.
I use a Canon 6D DSLR and Lightroom for lifestyle session photos.
Sessions are usually scheduled a month or two in advance. (High season may require a bit more advance notice.)
Cost is $300. That includes at least one hour of shooting time. (I always say that I will last as long as your spouse, kids or pets do!) Most importantly: it includes the digital files. The photos are yours to keep & print wherever you want, whenever you want! No "print" minimums!
You will receive your images within 2 weeks. When I schedule your session, I also privately schedule the hours it takes to edit the photos so that they are finished on a timely basis. It takes me 3-4 hours to edit a typical photo shoot!

Examples of my work:
I occasionally write a blog story about a family's shoot experience (with their permission of course!) Click here to read some of the stories and see some of the photos of past clients!
I have also posted several examples below.
Thanks so much for your time & your trust in my "eye" to catch your family! I truly love it!
