We Can Stop The Clock. Memories Are The Most Valuable Thing We Own.
Can you relate to this at all? I wake up every morning and wonder where the time is going. Do you ever do that? Have you noticed that, the older you and your children get, the faster time seems to fly? I’m very lucky-I get to see my grown up son Steven and my grown-up (and married) daughter Sheri on a semi-regular basis. They both live in the area. But here is one of the things I am most pleased about...
I Have Family Portraits From The Time They Were Small Right Up Until Recently...
I have four brothers and one sister. One brother lives in Minnesota and one in Florida. The rest of us live within 45 minutes of each other. I really worked hard to get all of us, including our parents, together for a family portrait. The “original eight”. I cannot tell you how happy I am that we got a wonderful portrait. You see, about a year after the portrait was created, my dad passed away. This is a memory I will definitely cherish for the rest of my life. I want to help other families hold onto their family memories forever, and never regret not having a family portrait done.

...But There Were Things Even They Didn’t Know When They Started Looking For A Photographer...
If you’re at all like most of the families on this website, you probably haven’t given a lot of thought to having a family portrait created. Don’t worry-that’s pretty normal. You’ve got a lot of things going on in your life. Life is busier and crazier than ever and family life in particular seems to be happening at an ever-accelerating pace.
5 Myths, Mistakes, And Misconceptions About Having A Family Portrait Created-The Stuff 99% Of All People Don’t Know:
By visiting my website, you must at least be considering having a portrait of your family created. Well’ that’s great-you will probably never make a decision that will bring you more lasting joy. However, there are some things you NEED to know before you and your loved ones step in front of any camera. By the time you finish reading this page, you will know everything you need to know about how to have a family portrait you will cherish forever!
So, let’s jump right in!
#1 Myth, Mistake, Or Misconception:
“There’s No Way To Guarantee I Will Love My Family Portrait.”
WRONG! Depending on who creates your family portrait, that is. Just suppose you had a family portrait created and your son or daughter didn’t look natural in it. The photograph was “ok” but it didn’t turn out quite the way you wanted. Should you have to pay for it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! I believe strongly that no one should ever have to pay for a photograph they don’t really like. That is why I offer the following guarantee.
That’s my guarantee and personal promise to you. Obviously, I’m totally confident you will love the portraits I create of your family. I believe that these portraits will become one of your most prized possessions-that, if your house were on fire, you would grab them on the way out of your burning home. This is not arrogance. I cannot stand arrogance. This is just how much I believe in a family’s relationship. This is why I choose to create family portraits and I can’t wait to create yours.
#2 Myth, Mistake, Or Misconception:
INCORRECT. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you’re at all like most people. You’ve probably had this question going through your mind: “How do I choose the right photographer?” In fact, you may have even thought of someone in your family-an uncle, a grandparent, even a friend-who is a bit of an amateur photographer. Why not have this person create the photograph of your family?
Question: “Just suppose someone were to create the perfect family portrait-One where you and your loved ones looked better than ever, happier than ever-A portrait that meant the world to you-what would that be worth?
No price tag can be put on your family’s memories. They are and always will be priceless. So, why would you ever want to gamble with those memories? It’s just a question of whether you believe a portrait of your family could really mean that much to you.
The Photographer You Choose Should Care About Your Family And Your Memories, Not Just About “Making A Buck” Off You.
I Pride myself on becoming a family friend of every family I photograph. I’ve even had some come up and give me a big hug when I happen to see them on the street. You see, I didn’t get into photography to get rich. Believe me, there are better (and easier) ways to make a fast buck.
But I chose to become a professional photographer. Why? Because I realized that making all the money in the world meant nothing to me if I didn’t feel like I was making a difference.
I Realized That Memories Were Priceless-That There Was No More Noble Or Wonderful Profession Than To Become A “Memory Giver”
As I grew up, seeing all the wonderful memories my dad created of family and friends. Some of the people in my family I never had the opportunity to meet! I really enjoy going through all the photographs he had created. I knew I just had to do the same thing. But not just of my family, but of others as well. So that they can have the same feelings that I still enjoy.
Time is the one thing that none of us seem to have enough of. It’s the one thing that money can’t buy. It’s the one thing that we would all give just about anything for more of. Through photography, we can hold on to the moments in our lives that we wish could last forever.

#3 Myth, Mistake, Or Misconception:
If your like most people, when you think of a PROFESSIONAL family portrait, you think of all of you gathered in front of a "painted background" in a photography studio, posed unnaturally, and all saying "cheese" as the photographer snaps the picture. Now, is that something a family will cherish for a lifetime? I think not. Yes it may capture the whole family together, but it will never capture your family relationships-your family's love.
Picture instead: All of you gathered in your favorite room in your home. Or outside on the new deck you just had built. Or in your backyard by the pine trees that give your yard so much character. All of you are dressed in clothes the photographer helped you chose-clothing that conveys your individual personalities, but still look great together.
Well, that's what makes the difference, and that's what I'll do for you.
And This Is SO Important: All Of You Feel Totally Comfortable In Front Of The Camera!
Do you know ANYONE who feels totally comfortable in front of a camera? I'll bet you don't. I don't. Nearly everyone I've ever met tells me the same thing: "I never look natural in pictures." The last thing you want is a photograph where you or your family members have that fake "posed" look on your face.
That is why it's so important that you feel very natural and comfortable with your photographer. Just think of how great your family would look if your best friend was creating your photograph. They would all look so happy and natural! I take pride in developing very close relationships with all my clients, and their entire family.
