It is said, and not just by photographers, that you should update your family photos each year. This not only gives you current photos of each member of your family, marks the passing of another year, and gives you an excellent Christmas card photo, but also preserves you at this moment for your family. You should exist in photos for your family because they don't care what you look like, they just love you for who you are right now and will always look back at the photos with fond memories!
Our family sessions include:
Choose a location that speaks to your family, or let us choose for you! We love our local parks and event centers. We have relationships with many of the beautiful venues around the Salem/Keizer area and have lots of great suggestions for places to go. We will travel within the Willamette Valley from Portland to Eugene, and along the coast from Astoria to Newport, with no additional travel fees. Anywhere else in Oregon with a small travel fee.
We also have a studio if an indoor portrait is more your style.
All our standard sessions come with both prints and digital images with unlimited printing rights. We believe when you buy a photos it should be yours to make as many prints or share digitally as you like.*
*We do keep the copyrights so please don't sell your photos!
A complementary consultation so we can help you get the most from your session and the best portraits possible.
Have family from out of town? No problem! Our sessions include an online gallery (for up to 6 months) so you can share and choose your photos on the go.
Children are a blessing and a joy. That said, we work with children enough to know that they lose interest quickly in getting their photos taken. That is why we have sessions built specifically for them! Features include:
One hour can be just too much for some kids, that is why we have a children's mini session with only half an hour's time. This session is still available to do outdoors at no extra fee and allows us to go to a local park, get a few beautiful portraits, and to still leave with well behaved kids!
Our full session works will for slightly older children (age 6+) and gives you more opportunity for variety in your portraits. Typically, we still like to go to a local venue with a park, get beautiful portraits for most of the time, and take great action/playing portraits at the end as your child plays on the park equipment. Fun for all!
By far our best value for you, the One Year program is designed to chronicle a year in the life of your child. This program includes twelve (12) 1-hour sessions, 1 per month, with you receiving one 8x10 and two 5x7s of your choice from each session. At the end of 12 months, you then receive all your chosen and purchased portraits on CD/Flash drive, as well as your choice of a wall calendar or photobook of those chosen portraits as well. This is an amazing package valued at almost $3,000, but which you can get for only $800!
We try to remain competative and yet affordable. For more information please see our packages page.
