What follows is a breakdown of what I offer as a portrait photographer. As with my wedding work It is the culmination of early exploration and lessons learned. What does my portrait photography encompass? Families, newborns, couples, etc.
ONE. I firmly believe in an open session. I don't like imposing a time limit, especially for family or newborn photographs. I would rather keep things as laid back and stress free as possible for all involved. If things don't work out then I don't mind rescheduling, free of charge. Most family sessions last an hour while engagement sessions generally last two to three hours.
TWO. I firmly believe in letting you have full control of your photographs. You own the copyright and you can do with them as you please. There are no watermarks, there are no logos. You will not be forced to pick and choose. When using a digital camera I shoot in a format called RAW. RAW images are then edited and converted to JPEG files, a universal format that is provided to you with the final package. In the event that you lose your photos you can always come back for a second set of images as I keep the original RAW files stored on disk. I always consult clients before drawing from their photos for advertising or publication purposes - I want them to know how their images will be used and I believe that they should have the right to say 'no.'
THREE. I firmly believe in options and flexibility. All edited images are saved in both colour and black and white formats. Why? I'm indecisive. Some individuals prefer a colour image to it's black and white counterpart. A few months later they may enjoy the opposite. Each set of photos is then saved in a high-resolution format. These are the files that you can use for printing and publishing. That same set is then saved again - this time in a low-resolution format. These are the files that you can share on Facebook or send to friends & family via email.
FOUR. I firmly believe in exploring. I've never had a studio, and I never plan on owning one. Does your family or significant other have a favourite hiking spot? Picnic location? Is there an area that you've never been to but would like to visit? I'm in.
When combined, the aforementioned items are part of a $300.00 package (taxes included). Travel fees to most locations in Nova Scotia & New Brunswick are also included in the price. Feel free to send a message if you have any questions and / or concerns. I'd also be more than happy to meet in person.
