Remember when they were little? It didn’t last forever, and neither will the way they are today!
Children grow, they move away. Or maybe they already have, and are just going to be in town for a few days.
Parents get older and it gets harder to get a great portrait of them… and then it’s impossible.
Your family deserves more than just snapshots… your children are such a blessing, so it is important to have professional portraits to document “Who You Are” and “Who They Are” at this time in your family’s life.
What is important to your children – to your family?
Where did you come from?
What is your heritage?
What is your child’s passion?
This is what Child & Family Portraits should be about… not just what your look like, but who you are.
But why trust me to create those portraits for you?
Experience, Commitment To Excellence, and Fun. I love to have fun.
No I won’t do anything dangerous or illegal. Railroad track are off limits, unless they are a short section of abandoned tracks that don’t go anywhere – and you have permission to be there.
Yes, I want to hear about you and your family’s sense of style. Are you looking for formal – crazy – conservative – a little of each? City – Country – Grandma’s Farm – The Beach?
Children’s Sports, Music. Art…?
Your personal consultation is for us to learn about.. YOU
We want to make your portraits uniquely YOU!

How do we get our pictures?
Before your portrait session, we’ll schedule a day when the local* adult decision makers can meet together in one of your homes, for your portrait reveal party.
Yes make it a party — this will be fun!
Mark will bring the best images of each group of people he photographed and will project them on your wall (or his screen) life size, so you can see just what they will look like as a finished portrait.
We’ll help you choose the best image for the portrait that is already included in your session fee… usually the whole group portrait for Grandma & Grandpa’s house.
You can also order prints and/or high resolution files at the same time.
