“Family faces are magic mirrors.

Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.”

How does an idea to capture a fleeting moment in time of your family end up being photographic art for your home?

First it Starts with a Conversation: I’d like to get to know how you are, what your style is and what is important to you and your family. We’ll discuss where you’d like your family portrait created, either in our studio or at your home, and what personal objects or props you’d like to include. Second, we’ll discuss what you’d like to do with your art. Where are you considering putting your wall portraits in your home? Or, are you thinking of grouping a series of framed images or using an image box as an heirloom for your family portraits? Your design session can take place in person, by phone or by Skype.

Our family portrait sessions are relaxed and fun, designed to bring out the best in your family and capture those special moments in your life. Sessions are done on location or in our spacious studio. Your family portrait session can last any where from 1 to 2 hours. During your session you should choose clothing and an activity that represents your daily life experience. We’d rather see you, your children and your family playing with your dog in the park, relaxing at the beach, nesting at home or having a blast at Disneyland in your most comfortable clothes. It’s all about being comfortable and letting your personality shine. Its these slices of life that you want to remember. Depending on the location, outdoor children and family sessions are best done about 2 hours before sunset. I pride myself on my ability to create rapport during your session. Moms, Dads, kids and teenagers, tell me that they have fun during their family portrait session and that I put them at ease.

3 Key Ingredients for a Successful Family Portrait

(1) Portrait Design Session & Booking a Time: This is the first step in getting to know each other and what is important to you. Your family portrait design session gives us an opportunity to find out about you and your family and why you have chosen this time to make your family portrait. We’ll also chat where you envision having your family portraits made and if you have a theme in mind? Next, we’ll book a time. If your children are young, its important to consider their happy time. Sessions can last any where from 1 to 2 hours.

(2) Clothing & Location: Clothing is a key ingredientthat can make or break your family portrait session. Marc will make specific suggestions on what colors and textures will work best for your family. Proper clothing choice will enhance eye color, make you look slimmer, and compliment your family’s skin tones. Together we will decide whether it’s best for you to have your family portrait created on location or in the studio. Location: Where your session is done is important. Location sets a tone and evokes a feeling. If we are doing an on location session, pick a place that has meaning to you. If I’m shooting in my studio, I’ll carefully chose a background color to bring out the natural beauty of your family.

(3) Beautiful Flattering Light: Whether natural or [portable] studio light, light is an essential ingredient. Light illuminates, shapes, and creates the photographic lusciousness that I’m know for. When all three ingredients are combined, they create harmony and a gorgeous soulful family portrait.

What to Expect After your Family Portrait Session

The Studio Premier: All sessions come with a Studio Premier. Your premier is about one week after your family portrait session where you can choose your favorite images for portrait wall art, wall groupings, family albums and gift prints. During your premier, Marc will show you your gorgeous family portraits on a 52″ Sony flat screen and suggest framing options so that its easy for you to visualize how your family portrait art will look in your home. Each portrait is printed on archival papers or contemporary canvas wraps with museum quality framing. You family portraits will be ready for pick up and installation within two weeks after your premier. Its that easy!
