"Capturing life's most precious memories"
T. Sheppard Life-style Portraits
Life-style portraits are photographed in your home, at a family gathering, outdoors doing your
favorite thing or enjoying your favorite local place. They are for the family, babies, children,
high school seniors, pets or groups of friends.
So how do life-style portraits work? We meet or talk over the phone about you, your ideas,
and where you would like your pictures taken. If it is outdoors, we set up a date and an alternate
date (in case of bad weather). I usually like to take about an hour to an hour-and-a-half for the
sitting. This way we can make sure that we have taken all the combinations that you might like.
If it is the home, I have a traveling studio that I can bring including some different backdrops,
which can be set up in moderate space. This works very well for children, babies and pets. They
are at home in a familiar environment and have their toys and their things around them. I shoot
the pictures; when I'm done, I pack up and leave. I don't limit the number of pictures I take,
because the next cute thing that happens may be the picture. If someone gets sick or something
important comes up, we can change the date.
If you have a family or company gathering, we can provide both formal and informal pictures of
the event. Please take a look at my Portrait Gallery and check out the FAQ page.
