I am an on-location photographer specializing in creating custom portraits in home environments, parks, cities or wherever my clients feel most comfortable.Â I pride myself on creating quality photographs that you will want to hang on your wall for a lifetime, so each and every image is fully retouched and creatively processed with acute attention to detail, color and subject matter.
Children and Families
Sessions are on-location*, either at the clients home or at a public space of their choice.Â Sessions usually last about 1 hour and deliver about 30 fully post-processed images. The session fee is $150 for up to 5 people.Â Each additional person is $25 (additional people may increase session time).Â The full set of high-resolution images can be obtained by placing a minimum print order of $150.
Â Child Portrait Playdates
Organize a group photo session for the neighborhood, the kids in your childâ€™s school or just with your close friends who have kids. Â Iâ€™ll meet you at your favorite park, playground or even the beach and everyone will receive a reduced rate by sharing the photo session. Â Each child will have about 10 fully post-processed images to order prints from with the option to receive the high-res files with a minimum print order of $75. Â Mom and Dad are welcome to hop into a few pictures and siblings shots will be accommodated as long as all the children are included in the group session.
A minimum of 4 children must be in attendance at $50/child.
This is a great option for the business person who is looking to update their business cards and professional marketing materials or for models who are looking for high-quality professional images that will sell their look.Â Sessions last 30 minutes to an hour at a location of your choice.Â The style of your portrait is up to you.Â We can set up a backdrop, take photographs within your work/home environment or meet at a park for some natural scenery. Â The client can choose up to 10 poses for retouching and will receive these as high-res images to use in print or online for whatever reason.
Engagement Sessions and Couples
Engagement sessions are included in many of the wedding packages that I offer, but are otherwise priced the same as child and family sessions.
*Locations more than 30 miles from Grand Rapids are considered a long distance and will be charged a reasonable rate for travel.
