Destination Portraits can be captured anywhere you are, or are going to be.

While it’s true, that most anyone can take a good picture every now and then. However, when you’ve only got one chance
to capture life’s biggest moments, you want to be sure the person behind the camera is a pro.

My clients come in all shapes and sizes. And today, families include the pets, and at times, extended family members.
Whatever it takes to get the job done, I’m on it!

“Watch Me Grow” Portraits
For Newborn, Infant & Children’s AND the Family!
A baby plan, as it’s known in my industry, is a great way to get portrait series at a great rate. The problem with it is it is intended to showcase only one subject – the newborn baby or child. For years, this was my offering. But, what about the rest of the family? Many photographers say “well, sure, for an additional fee, we can add…” I decided it was time to evolve this offer into something more exciting, just for you!
Goodbrain.com Photo’s “Watch Me Grow” Portrait plan covers an entire year of a families life!
Here is how I define what this package includes:
You pick the time to start…and we cover the year. We schedule 4 sessions. It’s that simple!
4 STAGES OF A CHILD & FAMILY (each stage is one session category)
• Newborn & Family – birth to one year, includes one birthday
• Infant & Family – one to three years, includes one birthday
• Children & Family – four to seven years, includes one birthday
• Tweens / Teens & Family – eight to high school seniors, includes one birthday
• Pets & Family – for many PETS fill the need of unconditional love! I have 2 minpins. I get YOU!
Each session offers a given product that comes with the session. All types of photo products are available for al a carte purchasing at each session. Upon completion of the year, I will design a custom layout photo book (20 pages) or a custom designed wall portrait.
Plus, for each session you will receive a slideshow on high resolution DVD, and a set of screen resolution images to share on your favorite social media networks! Additional printed products (announcement cards, framed prints, albums, etc) and digital products, and memorabilia items for gift giving may be purchased separately.
This obviously requires a bit of prior planning. I love a good challenge! Creation sessions may be in your home or at an agreed upon destination. Includes my cost to travel within 30-minute radius from my location (I will travel beyond this radius with additional expenses covered). My home base is Gilroy, CA. I have satellite locations in New Hampshire, Maine & Georgia. I book in advance and use Facebook to let people know where and when I am traveling to my satellite destinations. Typically, I am in New England during the summer/fall, and in Georgia during the winter/spring.

Newborn & Family Formal Portraits – take place at birth, up to 8 weeks, next sessions are dependent on child development, typically between 3-6 months (ability to hold head up, first teeth), the next one between 6-9 months (like ability to stand while holding something, sitting up, etc.) with the final session a “1st Birthday” portrait AND 1st Formal Family Portrait – includes immediate family, pets, and grandparents.
Don’t let the word FORMAL throw you for a loop…it’s simply the word I use to define a family session. You can be as formal, or as NON-formal as you like! Families today are dynamic and on the move! We can go anywhere you like in the world for this session, see travel disclaimer.
“The Birthday Cake” – If you would like a “messy child cake” session, this would be an additional session.
“Our Generations Family” – If you would like a Generation portrait is very important in my unsolicited opinion. The 1st Family Formal portrait is not a Generations Family portrait session, although it may appear similar.
The real value of this package is over $7500!
Well, actually, it’s priceless.
Goodbrain.com Photo portrait sessions start at $750. Payment plans are made available for any purchase of $550 or higher. All major credit cards are accepted, via Paypal. A minimum deposit is required at scheduling. I invite you to have a telephone conversation with me as a discovery call…let’s discover together how much fun we can make this “year in the life of…your life!”
