Family FAQ

Where are you located and do you travel for portrait sessions?

I am based in Hudson, Ohio and photograph family sessions in greater Akron, Canton and Cleveland. Photo shoots outside of Northeast Ohio are subject to travel fees.

How long have you been a professional photographer?

I’ve been a full-time professional photographer since 2002. During my career, I’ve photographed numerous portrait sessions, covered a variety of special events and documented 600-plus weddings.

What is your approach to family photography?

I direct a balanced mix of natural and relaxed poses during portrait sessions. The goal is to help clients relax and enjoy the process as we capture timeless images.

How are your family portrait services priced?

Standard family sessions in Northeast Ohio start at $375 and include 60 to 90 minutes of coverage, an online gallery and high-resolution files. Session time and options may be added. Please contact me for complete pricing details.

How many pictures will provide from our session?

Proof sets range from 25-35 fully edited images depending on the scope of your session and time reserved.

Do clients get to choose which images are delivered in color vs. black-and-white?

Some images look best in color while others look best in black-and-white. While I choose how they are presented in my portfolio and on the blog, clients get color and black-and-white versions of each image delivered in their collection.

When will our online gallery be released and high-resolution image files be ready?

Family, portrait and senior galleries will be available online for review approximately 2-4 weeks after the session.

Can we order prints and albums?

Absolutely. Prints and albums may be ordered at any time. Payment is due when products are ordered.

How do I schedule a family session?

Please contact me to discuss availability and reserve a date. Outdoor family sessions typically start about 90 minutes prior to sunset for optimal lighting conditions.
