5 Misconceptions

Having A Family Portrait Created Doesn’t Have To Be Nerve-Racking

#1 Misconception – “All Family Portraits Are Created The Same”


Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are at all like most people, you have probably had this question going through your mind: “How do I choose the right photographer?” In fact, you may even have thought of someone in your family – an uncle, grandparent, or a friend – who is a bit of an amateur photographer. Why not just have that person create the photograph of your family?

If you were sick and had to go to the doctor, would you want the most convenient, cheapest doctor, or the best one? Well, it’s the same thing when it comes to your families memories. You can most certainly find a cheaper photographer in town, but there are many other things to consider than just price.

The Photographer You Choose Should Care About Your Family And Your Memories, Not Just About ‘Making A Buck’.

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 families memories. They are and will always be priceless. So, why would you ever want to gamble with your memories?

Time is the one thing that none of us have enough of. It is the one thing that money can’t buy. It is the one thing that we all would give just about anything for.

Through photography, we can hold on to the moments in our lives that we wish could last forever. If it’s done properly, these same photographs can become family works of art that we proudly display in our home for everyone to see.

Before You Make The Decision As To Who Will Photograph Your Family You Should Chat With Me. There Are Things You Will Want To Ask The Other Photographers.

Don’t worry. I’m not going to try to ‘sell you’ on working with me. I am already very busy and I don’t have to pressure anyone to work with me as a photographer. I just want to talk to you about your portraits and help you discover what your photographs could be like. There is no cost or obligation of any kind and it will make the difference in how great your photographs will look.

You should know that in order for my portraiture to be creative, sensitive and artistic I limit the amount of sessions I do. I reserve OPENINGS for ONLY 8 family sessions each month and these spaces fill rather quickly.

#2 Misconception: “Family Portraits Have To Be Created In A Professional Studio – And They Have To Look Boring.”

When many people think of a PROFESSIONAL family portrait, they think of everyone 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 any 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 or your families love for one another.
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 trees that give your yard so much character. Or your vacation home in the mountains or by the beach. All of you are dressed in clothes the photographer helped you choose – clothing that conveys your individual personalities, but still looks great together.
Well, that is what makes all the difference – and that’s what I will do for you.

#3 Misconception: “There Is No Way To Guarantee That I Will LOVE My Family Portraits.”


Depending on WHO creates your family portrait, that is. Now, just suppose you had a family portrait created and your son or daughter didn’t look natural in it. The photograph was ‘okay’ but it didn’t turn out spectacular. Should you pay for it? Absolutely Not! I strongly believe that no one should ever have to pay for a photograph that isn’t PERFECT. That’s why I am the only photographer in this area to offer the following guarantee:

If Your Family Doesn’t Look The Happiest And Best They Have Ever Looked Together – If You Don’t Cry Tears Of Joy And Are Filled With Emotion When You Look At Them – You Simply Don’t Pay Me For Them.

That’s my guarantee and personal promise to you. As far as I know, there is not other photographer around that will make you this super guarantee. These photographs will be completely meaningless to you unless they convey the warmth, the real emotions and relationships between you and your loved ones. That’s the only real reason to have a family portrait created.

Obviously, I am totally confident that the portraits I create of you and your family will go well beyond anything you imagine. Please don’t think me arrogant, I just honestly believe in my abilities and I know I will work my bottom off to capture the natural, real emotions and family relationships unlike anyone else. That’s what I have devoted my life to and that’s why I can’t wait to photograph your family for you.


If You Are Not Thrilled With Your Photographs – If You Are Dissatisfied For ANY Reason At All, I Will Do Two Things For You . . .

1st – At NO CHARGE, I will photograph your family again and make certain that anything that wasn’t perfect is fixed, without you paying another cent.

2nd – If I am absolutely unable to thrill you – if I am unable to create a photograph that you feel you will cherish forever, I will refund EVERY PENNY you invested. You don’t pay for your photographs unless you love them beyond expression!

(Whether or not I end up being your photographer, please make sure your photographer offers this strong of a guarantee. If they are good, they should back up their work by taking all the risk off of you.

#4 Misconception: “There Is No One To Help Me Make choices About Clothing, Hair, Makeup, Location, etc. . .
