I’m a family man, through and through.
Life as a father is incredible. Nothing so profoundly changes the way you think and see the world as becoming a parent. Time also moves approximately 327 times faster with kids - “before you know it they’ll be off to college” everyone says. And they’re absolutely right. It’s one of the reasons I love photographing families - to freeze a few moments in life with photos, that would normally slip away. My goal is to portray your family exactly as they are today, with all the authentic giggles and silly faces that you see when I’m not there.
Portrait sessions are all $250 which includes your session time and 5 digital images via a private online gallery. You can purchase all the remaining files for $200 (usually about 75-100). I highly recommend maternity, newborn, a 6 and 12 month milestone - these 4 sessions together tell the story of baby's first year, which believe me, will be over in the blink of an eye!
If you'd like to book more than one session, package discounts may be available. Currently they are:
2 sessions - $50 discount
3 sessions - $100 discount
All 4 sessions - $250 discount
Prints are available right from your gallery as well. If you're interested in wall art, I offer a free in-home consultation so you can decide on the best option for your home.

Where are you located? We live in Hudson, Ohio and primarily shoot in the surrounding areas (Akron, Cleveland, Medina, Youngstown).
Do you travel? You betcha! We'll just have to coordinate the logistics :-)
What’s your style? A documentary mindset with an artistic perspective. We'll of course get the obligatory "looking at the camera" portraits, but I spend a lot of time focusing on genuine moments. I provide a fair amount of direction, but my goal is always to be as natural as possible.
What is your availability? I typically book about 4-6 weeks in advance so please plan accordingly and reach out as soon as possible. I may have last minute openings but the sooner you schedule, the better!
How long do photos take to edit? Sessions are delivered within 2 weeks.
Can I order prints or albums? Yes, please! Posting to Instagram is great, but there’s nothing like holding a physical album or having beautiful photos on your walls. I do provide a print release, but I can only guarantee the quality of any product if ordered through your online gallery.
How do I book? Click the inquiry button below to get started! Once we're both comfortable with moving forward, I provide you with an agreement which will list all the details. When you return it with your deposit, you’re officially booked.
