Private Outdoor Portrait Sessions

Whether it’s a family, engagement, or a just for fun session, my outdoor photo sessions are laid back and comfortable. I usually have a blast during a session and hope you have the same experience. Sometimes there will be odd requests from me in order to get that “special” shot but at any time if you are uncomfortable with it, please speak up. These are YOUR images!

Style and Images and Editing

I hate to pose people. Posed people tend to look… posed. During the session I will suggest some positions or things to try out but a lot of times, I’ll just have you pose in what “feels right” to you. If you have suggestions during a session, PLEASE speak up. I am always focused on my client and open to anything that will make them happy. Again, these are YOUR images. During the editing time, I will edit as I see fit creatively unless I hear from you otherwise. Portrait galleries will include each final image in color and black and white. My usual turns round time is 2-3 weeks for editing to be completed and for you to be able to access your high resolution online gallery. USUALLY it takes less time than that but I can never guarantee anything shorter than 2-3 weeks. If you are in a time crunch, please let me know ahead of time so I can try to accommodate this.

Online Gallery

My online galleries are password protected and available for 10 years. You will be able to download the images in high resolution JPG format for personal printing and use. If at any time you lose your gallery link, please contact me and I’ll happily send it again.


I only use professional grade Canon cameras and L series lenses.
