Portrait Info

Whether your session is in my studio or at a location of your choice, these are some of the questions we’ll want to answer.

 Why are you doing the portrait? Is it a gift or for personal, business, PR use?

 How many are in the portrait?

 What are the ages of the children in the portrait?

 Where do you want to do the session? In my studio, at your home, at the office, beach, park?

 Is it for the wall or table top frame?

 Do you want a formal or casual look?

These are just a few of the questions I’ll be asking so I can guide you in making decisions that will result in a fabulous portrait.

 

In Studio

I recommend the studio for most business/PR/actor headshots. I have control of the lighting and color of the backdrop. For business we want to brand your headshot with your logo and media kit. It’s important with social media that your avatar match your brand. I also recommend the studio for babies under the age of 3.

On Location

Location photography is a wonderful way to personalize your session. After hearing your vision, I’ll be able to recommend the best location for composition, lighting, background and convenience.

Maternity

 Congratulations! What is more beautiful than carrying a new life? You’re growing and glowing. Let’s capture this incredible time with a softly lit, emotionally-charged session. Seven or eight months is usually the best time to make sure the belly area is full and round. Ask us about our “Pregnancy Plan”.

Newborn

We love to capture the newborn before 2 weeks of age. No need to worry about props or outfits, we handle it all. Ask us about our “Baby Plan”

 Baby’s First Year

We’ll start with a newborn session in the arms of one or both of the parents. This session often takes place in your home a week or so after giving birth. Mommy may or may not feel up to the shoot, but it’s the perfect time with Daddy.

A baby’s look will change quite a bit from 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. (newborn and 9 months is my absolute favorite age for photographing babies, you’ll see why, when you see the series) It’s important to capture all the stages, so I’ve put together a package that you can pre-purchase or pay as you go.

 Family

There is nothing more important in your life. Time flies by. Babies grow, off to school, and before you know it they’re engaged to be married. Okay, maybe it doesn’t happen that quickly, but when you get to that stage, it will feel like it did.

Senior Portraits

High School Senior and College Graduation photos in studio or on location.

 Multi print packages available upon request.

Headshot~ PR~Actor

You only get one chance to make a first impression. A professional headshot is not something that should be taken lightly. Can I tell you how many I’ve seen in front of the Mission or with the harbor view? It might be a pretty background, but it’s not relevant. Business is tough. You’ve got to stand out. We’ll discuss your brand identification and come up with a relevant plan. Plan to invest and make it perfect with hair, make-up, and clothing. If your headshot is not current or contemporary, you wouldn’t want that to imply that you aren’t either.
