You do not need a studio, background screens, or a unique structure or background for a beautiful portrait.  Many unique portraits can be taken in a small backyard, and need nothing other than when mother nature provides.  

Requiring no travel, no props, and no setup, we can help you achieve a great portrait photograph in a matter of minutes  with our portable lighting and strobes. Whether its cloudy, cold, or raining, we have the experience and skill to make any day the perfect day for a quick photoshoot.  

You'll be surprised to discovery that the perfect spot for a memorable photo is right outside your door.  Outdoor portraits are a great way to capture your portraiture with a more natural feel that does not have a sense of being "staged."  Although the photographer will bring to bear all of his or her skills to create the photograph, the final product gives the appearance that it could have been achieved spontaneously with nothing more than a cell phone.

Family Portraits

Family portraits are perfect for capturing the family together in a moment of time.  A great gift or keepsake which allows family members to keep those closest in their minds and hearts.  Whether its an anniversary or the celebration of a new addition to the family, family portraits are the perfect opportunity to gather the family for special photos.
