Family, Children and Newborn Fine Art Portraits:  An in studio or on location family and children's custom photo session. This is a combination of documentary and fine art portraits in collaboration with families and their stories, or simply children's portraiture. Files are shared via personal gallery with private and professional lab access.  I take as much time as needed and shoot to my heart's content to capture all that is necessary for the final gallery.

Choose your day of the week and pay the session/retainer fee. This fee pays the photographer their valuable time and talent. It also holds your calendar date and is non refundable.
