We start sessions by meeting in the main parking lot next to the playground about 90 minutes before sunset and head out to the beach on the boardwalk.

We often begin posing clients on the east side of the point and work our way around the beach toward the setting sun on the west side as the wide bay reflects the beautiful warm light up into our subject's faces.

The sky changes quickly as the sun disappears beyond Joppa Flats and continues for about another 30 minutes, offering some of the most delightful backgrounds imaginable for childhood, family and loved ones portraiture. And after an enjoyable evening's portrait session clients often join us for a pizza at the PI Beachcoma, a drink at the Plum Island Grill, or seafood in the rough at Bob Lobster.

There are several locations we enjoy along the Merrimack River in the Newburyport area. This example was done in Rye, New Hampshire, the client had lead us along the river to where he had fished, swam and boated all his life.

Great portraiture is a product of love and imagination, our 80/20 promise in portrait making. Love helps us capture facial expressions and body language that reflects personality and relationships. Imagination starts with the end in mind, knowing where you will display the art will spark ideas that bring fun and excitement to the process, producing results that exceed expectations. 

A great location with amazing natural late-day sun light can produce stunning results that will make each family member look like a hero.

Studio sessions will focus attention with more intensity on the individual personalities and emotion-driven relationships, again turning our subjects into heroes, just in a different way.

The choice is up to you. We just need to know what you envision!
