Introduction: Preserving and Sharing your Story through Professional Portraiture.... We all have a beautiful story to share, and amazing pictures or portraits preserve and bring life to your story. Despite all the great images we capture on our cell phones they cannot replace a professional photographic art. Most of us, including me, have said, I wish I had more images of mom, my wife or my kids. We all make excuses as well, I don’t have time, maybe next month or next year, or it will happen again. Well my Mom, passed away twenty years ago before I had my children, my older daughter is now overseas, and I can’t cradle my younger daughter in one arm anymore. Gone forever are those chances to share images of mom with them and to preserve those moments for their kids. I understand how special and precious these moments in life are and want to help you preserve them and tell your story, just as I have for other customers who are more like friends. Whether it is your engagement, wedding day, new school year, family gathering, a new image for work or social media, or that special gift, or just because, I am committed to creating beautiful images that will preserve those special moments for years to come. Steve Johnson Photography strives to make your experience simple, fun and memorable, from our first conversation through our session and to delivering and hanging your ready to display photographic art in your home or office for you.

Steve is an incredibly skilled photographer and we love our daughter's senior photos! He captured her personality and beauty for a memorable year. We were amazed at Steve's skill in creating just the right lighting with his equipment. Thank you Steve!

Steve is a fantastic photographer! Our family photos included 10 adults and 13 children. He did a great job arranging all of the family members to balance the photo and was entertaining to both the adults and children. He also took each individual family's photo. He went above and beyond what we requested and the results were beautiful. He captured real smiles from everyone. He took lots of time with us and never made us feel rushed. We could tell that he cared about capturing these family memories for us.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing consists typically of a session or creative fee and then separate pricing for finished products which may be bundled to maximize discounts. Some projects are done as a flat fee or based on the time. I really focus on creating ready to hang or display portrait art for homes and offices. The visual impact and emotions that a print creates are more impactful than digital images. We do provide digital images as well and are programs are highly customized to the needs of our clients.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It really is three key steps: 1. Contact me and we will discuss and plan your project or portrait session. 2. Spend and hour or two together creating beautiful images. 3. Select your favorite images and products and enjoy them for years to come.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) through the PPA (Professional Photographers of America). This is a rigorous program and only about 3500 photographers in the world have done this. I spend two plus weeks a year in training and development programs, and also have a BS and MBA as well as several certificate programs specific to portraiture.
