The ORANGE COUNTY Family Portrait Process

Pre-Session Consultation

We will meet and discuss (in-person, Skype or Phone) to design a photo session that is tailored to your needs. We will plan the session and details to make the session unique to you.

Location Is Key

The right location is crucial as it helps sets the style of the whole photoshoot. Since we shoot on-location, we have plenty of options based on your needs. Our clients can select from beachy, urban or rustic.

Photo Session

An hour is all it takes to capture beautiful images of your family. We allow for multiple outfits changes if needed, and if the session happens to go slightly over an hour, we do not charge.

Finalize Editing

I take great pride in making sure the final images are worthy for print. I lean towards using softer, warmer tones which will work out nicely with any home decor if an image is printed for your home.

About the Family Session

I truly enjoy capturing and creating images that families are proud to hang in their home and to share with their family and friends. We work with our clients to ensure we select the right location, guide you in the clothing selection and have an enjoyable portrait session.

Michael was amazing! The entire experience was enjoyable and he and his wife, Melody, made us all very comfortable, including our seven year old daughter. Michael is a true professional and we truly enjoyed the experience and more importantly, we look forward to looking back on these memories for years to come!
Murray Family
Working with Michael was an absolute joy! He is a true professional and it shows in the final product of the photos! He even went the extra step in assisting me, via text message, when I needed help picking out the color scheme for the photos! I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family.
Rockoff Family
We recently had our family pictures taken with Michael and were very impressed! He suggested a scenic location for us and was able to capture some very sweet moments of our 2 young girls. His wife, Melody, who helped him with our shoot was very nice as well and overall we had a great experience.
Chung Family
Michael has an amazing eye to capture the most candid, real-life moments for any occasion. Our photo session was very special to us due to our extended family visiting from out of the country! Michael did an amazing job ensuing all of the pictures we desired were captured. I highly recommend Michael for all our photos.
