Family Portraits

The fine art of Family Portraiture creatively captured, professionally lit with either studio lighting or natural light has declined significantly since the advent of digital cameras, phones, and other gadgets.  Family Portraits today have lost the artistic use of light, selective focus, and composition.  Though the quality and image size of today’s “phone” is better than the first $10,000 Nikon I bought in the mid 90’s, they still don’t tell you how to improve your Family Portraits nor can they automatically capture a fleeting moment that if missed, will never be seen, re-lived, or enjoyed again.

I’ve always said that great Family Portraits are not expensive………….. they’re PRICELESS!  And they truly are.  Family Portraits will always become more precious with time.  Don’t think of your Family Portraits  as an expense, but rather, as an investment!

Plan a Family Portrait around a family outing, BBQ, campground, beach, lake, park, skiing, hiking, anything your family enjoys doing or places that are important to you.  Dress casually and it will become more “fun” than a project.  I have no time limits during a Family Portrait session and will spend as much time (and eat as much food) as it takes!!
Give me a call for a free family portrait consultation & planning session including clothing & colors selection, portrait sizing & placement, location and prop/activity ideas.

Thank you for your consideration and I wish you the very best.
