Commissioned Portraits are not just photos

THEY ARE works of art

Commissioned photography is very different from a portrait photography experience. It requires a little more time for me to get to know you and your children and pets which allows for an enhanced experience for both of us. Like a painter, I am an artist who uses light, moment and feeling to create compelling images you won’t want to take down and that will make you feel something. I draw on my studies of Italian Renaissance painters, and my masters in Photojournalism.

With more than 25 years of experience, I have studied fstops and shutter speeds, and photograph everything using the manual setting.  I use available light carefully and thoughtfully, and do not use presets to cover up errors in exposure. I have been using Photoshop since 1991 and can retouch or swap heads with the best of them, though I prefer to get it right in the camera.

The investment you make in my artistry, is an investment of the highest quality in your family or maternity photography. These moments and your experience will lasts far beyond the session and getting your images. The photos hanging on your wall aren’t just for you to enjoy now, but will outlive you and serve as lifetime reminders to your children how much you love and cherish them. These are what I call your visual assets.

 

2019 Commissioned Portrait Options

Maternity, Family and Pet Photography

I do not require clients working with me to spend a minimum amount. Prints range from $150 to $10000 for a 70″ wide Silver Gelatin Selenium toned print in a custom built European metal frame with museum non-glare plexiglass that is installed by my art handler. The average client spends between $1000 – 5000. All of my work is guaranteed. I am an artist and if you are not happy, I am not happy.  We do offer unlimited reshoots if they are necessary – which they usually aren’t. To read more about the Silver Gelatin Fiber Prints, please go here. 

NOTE: I do not include all your digital files with your session but they are complimentary when spending a minimum of $3200 on images and albums for your home.  All prints you purchase come with the corresponding digital file that we have worked on together. This is the definition of a commissioned portrait. Most of my work is done in camera using manual settings so I don’t do much post production.

Sets of digital files are available for purchase if you are not interested in having a custom art piece, or if you are coming from abroad and it isn’t feasible to drag a framed piece home.   I DO give my clients ALL of the proof images in social media resolution which are perfect for viewing on all of your devices and so you can revisit them as often as you like.

Every commission includes the following:

  • Full consultation before your session: ask me all of your questions, come see the studio space, and tell me all about the story of your family. (1 hour)
  • Creative photography session (1.5 – 3 hours)
  • Post session creative consultation to discuss the best image for you and your lifestyle that will hang on your wall or be curated into albums (2 hours)
  • Photo concierge service to help size and hang your images or arrange displays together in your home
  • USB of your social media resolution digital images
