Home Portrait Sessions

$300

 

Portraits can be commissioned in your own home, and we enthusiastically encourage this. It allows us to photograph you in an environment that is comfortable to you. In addition, your changes of clothes will be right there on hand. 

The additional $50 surcharge added to our regular fee is to cover transportation of studio equipment, set up and break down. 

The family photography below was taken in their family home early on Christmas Eve using a studio background and lights.

Fine Art Portrait Photography is my speciality. The art of  traditional family photography seems to have gotten a little lost, with many businesses built around the outdoor session model. Much of this is based on the ability to capture photo sessions without a studio, or studio lighting and props. Yes, I can capture an outdoor portrait session if you prefer, but the path to traditional portraits, archival photographs, lies in a the portrait studio setting.

The lighting, the photography backdrop, the style of the photographer, all blends into the creation of a fine art portrait. Capturing a photograph of someone, an individual or a group, relies not only on technical ability and professional equipment, it also relies on being able to connect, to relate, to those mostly nervous people in front of the lens. I believe that I can do that for you, and your family.

Do you want to be photographed in a studio environment, or would you prefer to be photographed in your own home or office? I am happy to arrange your photo shoot wherever you are comfortable.  The benefits of a home studio portrait session is that everyone has all the clothes they might need at hand, and it's a much more relaxed environment. I will of course bring lighting and background equipment. Please ask for details.  

Here are some of the areas that I cover, though I will travel throughout most of Michigan if required. All of Oakland County and Metro Detroit, including Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield, Troy, Rochester Hills, Auburn Hills, Royal Oak, Sterling Heights, Farmington Hills, Plymouth, and a few other areas not mentioned. If you are quite a distance away from my base in Bloomfield Hills, please ask about traveling fees.
