I take great pride in producing images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime, pictures that will bring a smile to your face each time you see them hanging in your home. Give me a call to schedule your portrait session or consultation where we’ll discuss your portraits the details, get to know each other a bit and even enjoy some warm cookies baked just for you.
What sets us apart
The Consultation – When you come in for a portrait consultation it’s more than just showing you some pictures. I want to get to know you, one of the most important things to consider when choosing a photographer is how well you get along. Having a great rapport with one another will help in every facet of image making and make the images look natural and beautiful. We’ll take the time to chat, have some cookies and also look at a lot of pictures while discussing the style of images that is best for you and answer any questions you may have.
The Perfect Image – Every finished print or other product that leaves the studio is completely retouched, and the retouching isn’t limited to just your face but the entire image, body, and background. This is something that’s becoming a lost art in today’s photography business. Every image that leaves the studio is perfect, perfectly lit, perfectly retouched, perfectly posed so you’ll love it! I consider each print, card or album that leaves the studio to be a work of art that will be displayed proudly in your home. Also, each image is a reflection me and my work, when someone see your images and asks who created them I want it to be because they are blown away by the beauty and depth of the image, not because they want to make sure and never use “that guy”.
Only the best – I don’t cut any corners when it comes to your portraits I want to make sure you receive a true piece of art. Each image is each is handcrafted and includes color and density correction in addition to fine art finishing usually only seen in galleries and museum prints. I use no pre-designed templates when creating baby announcements or cards and do all the design work myself, each product you receive is as unique and beautiful as your family. I take the same pride in providing high-quality frames, thank you cards and many other products and I’ll be happy to show you some during the consultation.
You’re the top priority – Nothing is more important to me than making sure you have the best images and memories possible from your portrait session. Photography isn’t only my passion but it’s also my full-time profession. That means you can call me during any time of the day and I’ll be there to talk and answer any questions you may have, I’m even available late nights if you have a last minute concern before the session. My team and I will be one time, professional and ready to create breathtaking images.
Images where you want them – Don’t be limited by your location, we are available for travel worldwide, whether its the beaches of Hawaii, a Tuscan Villa in Italy or right here at home we can create your family portraits anywhere you’d like.
A true professional – As I mentioned above photography is my full-time profession. I graduated with a four-year degree in photography, I teach workshops on photography around the country, writes articles for major photography magazines and websites, have won numerous awards for work and have had my images shown in galleries around the world. I have the professional skills, knowledge, and creativity to make the images of your family, children or grand-children something to be cherished…just saying.
An assistant when needed – Many times your family includes newborns, children, and even pets, all of whom you want to include in your portraits but they sometimes have a mind of their own. To help in those situations I have an assistant at the ready, my wife, Sarah. She’s a wonder with kids and animals and has that knack for getting them to smile, laugh or just look in the right direction. Plus, Sarah has a great eye and always seems to notice the “little stuff” that makes a for a perfect portrait.
It’s your day – Your portrait session is all about you and your family which is one of the main reasons I limit my portrait bookings to only one a day. I understand stand that babies get hungry or kids need a break from time-to-time and I never want you to feel rushed because I have another session right after yours. I dedicate my time to you so if we have to take a break to feed your little one or let them play for a bit it’s no problem. In the end that bottle or break may be the key to an enjoyable and perfect session.
The Little Things – I think its the little things that count, the music playing in the background, the warm cookies waiting for you at the consultation, cold drinks during the session and of course personal attention and great customer service. If you have questions you should always feel free to contact me, via email or phone (209.324.5160), I’m always available to you and will do everything I can to make your portraits a memorable experience.
Anything you want – Traditional photographic prints and albums are beautiful and they come in a number of finishes and styles for you to choose from, but if that’s not exactly what you’re looking for we have many other ways to display your images that will be the envy of everyone who sees them. Canvas gallery wraps, metal prints, greeting cards featuring your images, even iPhone covers, just about anyway you can think of to display your images I can do, just ask.
