Questions about my work? Maybe I've answered them here!
1) Do you have a studio? I have a studio for product photography, and I have a mobile studio for when I do corporate head shot days. As a general rule, I prefer ambience to backdrops, and most of my work is done on location. I am very experienced with lighting and will use lighting as appropriate on location. 2) Can my dog be in the photos? Absolutely!! Dogs are family members, too! Keep in mind that it can take a little time to get the shots you want when trying to get Fido to "smile" and "look at the camera", but I have many clients who include their dogs and they are happy because their family photo is complete! I do ask that dogs be leashed when we're working on shots of just the humans, as many locations require dogs to be under supervision at all times. 3) What to wear? I always suggest simple, but that doesn't necessarily mean plain. Your clothing should express the uniqueness of you, but not require a lot of fuss. Be sure everyone is comfortable in their clothing - shoes that pinch and straps that needs constant adjustment can make the wearer unhappy and/or self conscious. HERE is an excellent article about dressing for autumn family photos, but it applies to any season! 4) Can you suggest locations? YES! I spend a lot of time traveling to various locales and looking at them from a "portrait session point-of-view". Some of my favorites include Mass Audubon Property in Canton (MABA), Borderlands State Park in Easton, Hale Reservation in Westwood, The Boston Public Garden/Boston Common, World's End in Hingham, Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, Elm Bank in Wellesley, playgrounds, beaches, urban streets and public libraries... the list goes ON AND ON! I can help you choose a location that is convenient, appropriate, and expressive of you and your family! 5) Will you sell me your digital files? YES! Starting in 2021, each print purchased from a new session includes the digital file for that image. For sessions prior to 2021, digital files are a la carte and I am happy to provide pricing.
Paying for professional photography (especially in the age of iPhones) is an investment in your family memories. I work very hard to be sure each client has the very best images I can produce, as I am aware they are paying me for my experience and my vision. I use professional labs with the best quality inks and papers, which ensure your photographs will last for years to come.
