We had a family reunion in June and wanted to have a large family portrait complete with the dog. Michael arrived on time at the family home. The light was not ideal but it was the only time we could get everyone together. He took photos at several locations on our property and the pictures turned out great! We were very happy with the lighting and layout of the family and individual photos. He was professional, had a great attitude and we enjoyed having him take the photos.

Details: Family or children's portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • Flash drive • My home, venue, etc.

Michael would get a SEVEN star if that was available. While you may find an artist passionate about her/his craft, Michael is supremely fastidious about the quality of his service. Even for one simple portrait i needed, he actually shot over 110 photos to ensure i get exactly what i want. He was even willing to go further if i was not happy. The results were such that i actually had a difficult time choosing between the best. There is No better value for money in town.

Details: Professional / business • Home • 1 person • No outfit changes • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Wow thank you so much! I'm glad to hear you were pleased with the results.

We loved working with Michael! Not only does he have a great eye for capturing great candid shots, but his portraits and attention to detail is spot on. Our photos were stunning and we could not be happier!

Michael was great to work with. He showed remarkable patience with my grandson who went from being a reluctant subject to a very silly subject. We don't have the pic's back yet, but based on how Michael got Al to be a regular smiling kid, I think we'll have some very good ones.

Details: Family or children's portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Photo studio • Physical proofs and prints • At the pro’s location

Thanks Claire. Al was fun to work with.

FAQs

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

    Photos don't have to be expensive, they just have to be what you want! Pricing is based on many factors that include the customer's objectives, session duration, location and desired delivery format. We will work together to get the best photos at the right price.

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

    First I will work to understand the needs of the customer. What is their objective and budget? Then we will work together to develop a shot list for any poses or situations that are a "must have". We will discuss how they would they like their images delivered? If prints are desired, what materials would they like? (paper, canvas, metal, glass, etc.)

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I enjoy casual photo sessions for graduation, prom, families, small events and headshots in a natural environment, the workplace or the studio.
