IMG_1816 This is the fourth time I’ve had the privileged to photograph this family.  And I have loved seeing them expand.  Every time they welcome me into their home I leave amazed by all the love swirling around that place.  It’s a palpable kind of love, and their kids are getting rooted in it.   I feel it while I’m there shooting, and then I see it over and over again in the images I edit.  I think it’s pretty beautiful. 

I love that they are just who they are, doing what they do and I’m there to capture it.  They don’t put on any pretenses.  Their boys are wild and full of life and joy and the kind of confidence that comes from living in a place built on love.   And boy do they all adore their new little addition.   IMG_1699

I love this job of mine. 

$500 fee includes:

- 1-1.5 hour session with up to five people ($20 per additional
person) at a setting of your choice (within 30 miles of Boston)

- An archival CD with 60+ edited high resolution images that you can print and use as you like

  • Please note: my pricing model is different from many other photographers. You have the rights to these photos--you will have the digital files. You may use the images multiple times, in any way you would like (e.g., prints, digitally)...as if you took the picture yourself.
- Option to order professional prints at an additional cost, including fine art canvases, custom made story boards and hardbound albums

My approach:
  • As you will see from the images above, I have a relaxed style. While I always take several traditional shots with the subjects looking at the camera, I find my favorite images are those that capture family connections and emotions in a more casual way. My photo shoots are fun and informal, with families and children doing what they do together.
  • A typical session includes a variety of set ups: family portraits, individual portraits of each child, portraits of siblings together, mom with child/children, dad with child/children, and shots of mom and dad together. I take a lot of pictures. I want to capture who your family is in this moment in time.
  • I am happy to suggest locations and set-ups, but want to be sure to capture any that have special meaning for your family. I love when clients give some thought beforehand to the locations and shot set-ups (e.g., 'Dad chasing baby') that you would like to try.
  • My goal is not to create one or two perfect images. Instead I aim to capture and create a collection of images that portray who you really are, who your children are and the connection and love that you share.
  • $100 deposit due at booking to hold your slot. This is a non-refundable deposit. If the session needs to be rescheduled due to illness or weather this deposit will be applied to the rescheduled session.
  • Remaining $400 due at the end of your session.
  • I offer a full guarantee on my work--if you are not fully satisfied with your shoot and photos, I am happy to do another shoot at no cost.
