SUMMER SESSIONS Imagine your family at the beach in the cool of the evening, barefoot in the sand creating a family treasure. Whether it is beach or backyard, the summer is perhaps the best time to create a family portrait. The days are long. The weather is warm. Everything is lush and beautiful.

ISSUE 1

Paul, our portrait artist, is particularly good at working with families, with children, with pets and teenagers, groups large and small, the wild and the tame. Coming from a big family, Paul thrives in the midst of the chaos (and joy) of everyday family life. His work is often described as painterly and graceful. Be sure to book early as summer dates go quickly—especially the sunset sessions.
