FAQs | Portraits

What kind of portrait sessions do you offer?

We specialize in natural light, on location photography and do not shoot in a studio.  All sessions will be at your home or location of choice.  We encourage you to bring your own props to show your individuality and creativity.  We offer a variety of different sessions for our portrait clients:

  • Family – we combine posed shots and lifestyle portraits of you interacting with each other.
  • Headshots – available for executives, actors and models.
  • Passport – available for standard U.S.A. passports.
  • Other – have an idea in mind?  Please contact us with the details.

What is a lifestyle session or portrait?

Lifestyle photography sessions focuses on making photos from real life situations.  For example, when you take your child to the studio at the mall they will be put in front of a backdrop with props and asked to pose to create the “portrait.”  Whereas, a lifestyle session with us may include meeting you and your child at the park or at the place where this mouse sells pizza;) to capture them playing and interacting with you and their environment.  Our goal is to capture actual moments as they happen.

How do we choose a location?

The location is entirely up to you.

What should we wear?

For family sessions, we do not require that you wear matching clothing, but we do suggest that you all dress similarly.  You can wear something that reflects your personality and style.  Common colors like white, black, brown or gray and one or two brighter colors like red, green, blue, orange, etc.  More importantly, you do not want to wear something that shifts or distracts the viewers eye away from your face.

Can we include our pet in our portrait session?

Of course.  We do suggest that you please bring someone that will look after them.  We will try to take the photos that include the pet during the first 15 minutes to half an hour of the session.  Afterwards, we can spend the rest of the session focused on the family without any distractions.

When and where can I see my photos?

Three to five days after your session, we’ll post a preview of your photos on the blog.  The rest of the photos will be edited within two to three weeks and uploaded to your online gallery where you can purchase prints and other items.  We encourage you to forward the link to family and friends and share your images with others.
