In Home Portraits

Professional portrait photography in your home.

Professional portraiture can be used for the enjoyment of friends & family, for celebration of major milestones, to document a passion in your life, for business purposes such as resume enclosures, passports, or for online social media sites.

Individual, family or pet portraits can be set up in a favorite room or a backdrop can be set up for a studio look. Location photgraphy in your home allows you to accessorize your portrait with props that relate specifically to you. Pose with a musical instrument, sports equipment, with your trophies, showing off your hobby, in your favorite chair or in the garden.

Styles - Portraits can be formal, business, glamourous, casual or as artistic as you like. Be sure to book enough time for several scenerios.
………………………………………………………………………………

You can expect between one to three setups per session. We can concentrate on one lighting and posing setup, or time can be spent getting as much variation as time allows.

Book a two hour session if you want to have as much variety as possible or if you want to hone in on the perfect lighting, pose and wardrobe choices.

The client receives a photo CD of retouched images.

Key images from each setup will be retouched if needed and you will recieve a photo CD of all the images from the shoot. You can print out your photographs yourself or have a photo finishing store print out your photos.

Preparing for your session.

Infants - Photographing infants usually works best if scheduled around their nap time as they are more relaxed.

Pets - Dogs should be taken on a walk prior to being photographed. This puts them in a relaxed state and they will cooperate better.

What to wear for your portrait.

For individual shots it's best to preselect two or three clothing choices to pick from. Group shots tend to work best if everyone wears similar tone clothes, whether it's light or dark.

Dark tones photograph best and off-white clothes photograph better than pure white.
