PORTRAIT BASE SESSIONS
Before we get into the packages, I want to say a few words about quantity vs. quality. Many photographers deliver a large number of digital files as part of their package offerings. I don't do this because I would rather give you a select set of exceptional images as opposed to a smattering similar files. Much of the craft of photography is in the editing, and this is part of my service.
45 -minute shoot • single family or individuals • up to 10 images • digital download
This package is great for single families or individuals. For families, we will get a great family portrait at one setting, and some candid shots. For individual’s we will get multiple looks. Choose from one of my select Seattle, or East Side, locations listed below, or lest discuss a location of your choosing. This package is great for single families, senior portraits, and for individuals looking to improve their social media presence.
90 min shoot• custom location • up to 20 images • up to six people • digital download & USB
Adding more time will allow us to expand on the traditional portrait and start to tell the story of your family. We will have an opportunity to shoot family portraits in at least two settings. More importantly, we will have time to shoot a greater variety of candid images. The candid pictures, combined with the traditional portraits, are a wonderful way to capture the true nature of your family.
I can make suggestions on places to shoot, but this package allows you to choose any location within an hour’s drive from Seattle. Think about doing a lifestyle home shoot if you have a beautiful home. Consider outfit changes, themes, props, etc.
Before the shoot, we will have a 30-minute call to discuss ideas, locations, clothing and styling considerations.
2.5 hour • two custom locations • up to 50 images • digital download & USB + 3 mini books
A two-hour shoot gives us a lot of creative freedom. This package allows us to consider multiple locations, outfit changes, props, etc. But most importantly it gives us time. Great photos are rarely forced. Giving ourselves two hours gives us the time to ensure that we create something remarkable.
** If these locations don’t work for you lets discuss one of your choosing. I have experience at these locations and can guarantee a good setting.

Fine art BW Prints
Every once in a while I create a portrait that is truly exceptional. Don't get me wrong, all of the work we do together will be great. But for those happy accidents that are of genuine artistic merit, they deserve to be memorialized as an archival black and white print. I am a master printmaker and can custom process your images to print beautifully on my archival Canon printer.
