Family Portrait Pricing

What better way to remember THIS precious moment in your family’s life than with a portrait? I love bringing the natural beauty of Northern Michigan into my photographs. Regardless of the season, I shoot almost entirely outdoors, utilizing both natural light and strobes. My aim is to provide you with timeless, above-the-mantle-worthy art that captures your personalities, interactions, and family love.

After the photography is done, I spend hours perfecting your images. My editing style is clean, balanced and detailed. I ensure that you actually look like YOU when I am done. You will receive online, digital access to the final processed photographs. These images are yours, to use as you see fit. While I will help you with online ordering, you won’t pay me a penny for prints.

NOTE: You can expect 25-50 photos per hour. The number of photographs depends on a multitude of variables including lighting situations and how quickly we move from pose to pose.


We all absolutely LOVE the photographs that you took for our family at Nubs Nob. The moments that you captured are stunning. I really appreciate you being so flexible and I think your approach perfectly matched our camera shy family. The photos speak for themselves in terms of quality, but you made the shoot really fun as well. I’m so grateful – you’ve allowed me to give my parents the perfect gift.

“WOW! You did an amazing job capturing my daughters’ personalities! I’m so glad we took the photos in the woods; they are stunning! I can’t thank you enough for preserving this moment in time for us!”

“We are not from the Harbor Springs area, so Dave put together a list of locations and recommendations in the Harbor Springs and Petoskey area. The locations turned out great – Dave knows the area well and knows the best spots for lighting, time of day etc. My fiancé and I wanted some effortless, casual pictures that captured our personalities and Dave did a great job of getting this result. I would highly recommend the Crooked Porch to anyone looking for an easy to work with photographer and great customer service!”

“We died over these – they were exactly what we hoped for! To see my four kiddos (and husband for that matter) running and playing on the beach I came to as a teenager was just awesome and you captured them so well. We are THRILLED! Some of these photos literally made me tear up. Thank you thank you thank you!!!”

“Dave did an amazing job with our family! We contacted him going out on a limb, and he responded within hours and scheduled us for a shoot within 2 days while we were in Michigan for a family vacation! Made us feel beautiful and comfortable all the way through- could not recommend anyone better!
