Thank you for your interest in my portriat services. Please read on to see how I like to take the portraits and what you can expect to get when you schedule a portrait session.

The best location is one in which you and your family members are comfortable but not distracted by too many diversions.  Good examples are your yard (possibly), a familiar neighborhood park, or natural settings such as in the woods along the Potomac near Great Falls. 

I prefer to work under natural light outdoors or through large windows out of direct sunlight. The best light is in the early morning and late afternoon, but midday works in wooded settings and for some indoor locations.

I like to start the sessions with up to a half hour to talk about what you want and for you and the other family members to get comfortable with the camera and me.  We will work together to schedule the session when everyone is rested and not restless and the light is normally most flattering.

Depending on how many individual pictures you want in addition to group images, the actual photography lasts from about thirty minutes to two hours.

I will select the best images from the session, and I will create a password protected directory on my web site for you to see the proofs. You can share the gallery with family and friends, and you can copy individual images to your computer to use as computer wallpaper or to email to friends and family. For an additional fee, I can provide proof images as 4 x 6 prints.
