Booking Times for Outdoor Sessions

I book up to two sessions a day all 7 days of the week. Each session lasts about 2 hours on average:

Morning session: 11:30am. General outdoors daylight session in parks, beaches, city, etc.

Afternoon/Evening Session: See table below for timings. Provides a nice mix of daylight and sunset colored or even night scenes.

Evening session schedules change as the days grow longer and shorter and the clocks change. Beaches get dark much later than parks. Here is a close but approximate guide:

Newborn Photo Sessions

Sessions last between 2 and 4 hours (as permitted by the baby ;) ) Family members welcome to be present and take part in newborn sessions.

The best time to shoot newborns is during their second week. Sessions are typically held at the client's location. Backdrops require a 10 x 10 sq ft area clear of furniture. Clean living room floors are ideal. A bed in an uncluttered bedroom also works well. Occasionally a lawn works fine in summertime.

Newborn Sessions cost $450 and come with 6 prints sized 8x12.

Groupon Vouchers: For Family Style Shoots 

For a limited time I am offering vouchers on Groupon for new clients which can be used for family style photoshoots for up to 5 people. This is a great way to experience a photoshoot for literally next to nothing cost-wise. 

The deal comes with 1 large edited print measuring 13x19, a hi-res video slideshow of images in the form of a .mp4 file and a mobile app with the slideshow images. No image files are included with the Groupon however these may be purchased quite simply by upgrading to one of the packages listed above.  Other good reasons to upgrade include a greater selection of locations plus more people can be included before incurring additional charges per head.

After the shoot clients get time-limited free access to an online gallery for making selections. Same day upgrades to a package receive a 10% discount on package price. This deal works as a great add-on to any of the packages listed above!  

Locations and slots are limited. See the deal on Groupon for more details!
