Family & Portrait Investment
We know that capturing your images is an investment and one that you will cherish as time passes.
All sessions include digital images via online gallery, with print release for personal use. Most of our sessions are located outdoors in a park or setting near you. We do have the ability to shoot indoors on location.

What else can you tell me?
Some of you might be interested in some of the technical details of our equipment and what we do to manage your data. You might also be interested in the flow and what happens after the photo shoot.
We got our start using consumer grade cameras and lenses (like you can get at Best Buy.) While they can and do produce a great image, there are some features from professional level gear that we now utilize. We use Canon professional level cameras and lenses now, which produce a sharper image and fast speed. Our cameras also include the ability to record to two memory cards simultaneously , which prevents the loss of data in the case of a single memory card failure. We also use Canon "L" lenses, which are the top of the line aspherical, precision ground lenses. They provide a clear image with minimal distortion.
Data Loss Prevention
If we capture your images, you want to know that we aren't going to lose your images before they are delivered. As we indicated in the technical details, our cameras record to two memory cards simultaneously. We may only download from one memory card, but we have the other available if those images are corrupt on one card. We copy those images to an external hard drive which then backs up immediately to our secure cloud data provider. Before the images are edited, we have 5 copies of them (Card 1, Card 2, Computer, External Hard Drive, & Cloud Backup.) For Boudoir, we can omit from the cloud backup if you request it.
How do you deliver our photos?
We live in the digital age and our photos are delivered to you digitally via our website. You will be able to see the proofs and download the final images from the same page. Final image downloads are secured by a PIN that we will provide to you once complete.
Each package has its own image quantity, can we pay for more?
Actually, no. The reason is, that we will give you every image we edit and meets our quality standards. There are a lot of factors that differentiate how many images you will get, but we aim to only give you the absolute best. No eyes closed. No harsh shadows. No duplicates. We may say 15-20 images, but have 40 that come out great. You'll get all 40. We want you to get every possible image we can.
Can you tell me the flow of our photo session from start to end?
Sure thing! We'll start after the booking process, which is when we get into the real details:
Picture Day - We will be at your photo location from 10 - 15 minutes early so we can setup without eating into your session time. The time starts when your photo session time is scheduled or when you are ready to being (whichever comes first.) We may have several sessions in a day, so we have to stick with the time we are supposed to start. If you start at 12:55 pm instead of 1:00 pm, your session time will run until 1:55 pm. If you start at 1:05 pm instead of 1:00 pm, your time will run until 2:00 pm (scheduled stop time.)
Within 1 Day - We'll deliver at least one proof to you and give you the location of your gallery folder.
Within 1 Week - We aim to get all of our proofs delivered within one week. Larger sessions, difficult lighting, or other situations outside our control may take additional time.
Within 3 Weeks - After we have decided that you like the images provided and all images are done, we will provide you with the PIN to download your images.
Can we get prints from you too?
Absolutely! We offer prints at extremely reasonable prices. Contact us for up to date print pricing.
