I don’t feature many photos of guys because most of the portrait work I’ve done in the past has been tied to the Miss America pageant system along with the senior portraits and weddings that flowed from that network. That being said, I want to extend a special invitation to you guys. Let’s do this thing.
The Fort Worth Portrait Project offers both studio sessions and location shoots. My fashion shoots are ideal for people looking to make an artistic statement about themselves. Depending on the time you give me to work with you, I can create a wide array of images perfect for building a modeling portfolio or just making a personal statement. Generally speaking, I avoid locations other photographers flock to, opting instead to create unique images for my clients. If you book me for a shoot, get ready to have fun exploring fun places to shoot.
All photo packages on this page come with the rights to use the photos we create both in print and online for promotional purposes. And yes, I’ll give you the full-resolution images.
Many seniors, especially guys, loath the idea of posing for the camera. I’m the perfect photographer for these people…and you know who you are. I’ve done a senior portrait shoot at a state track meet for one client where I spent maybe 2 minutes getting him to pose and the other 4 hours documenting his meet. I’ve also shot Friday night football games, fishing trips, and even a horse-riding session—all as non-traditional senior portraits. In each case, we had a blast, and the client and his or her parents now have some great photos hanging in their homes to mark their child’s transition to adulthood. What a meaningful type of photo shoot.
I offer custom albums and fine prints in a wide range of finishes, sizes, and framing options.
Many of my pageant clients have competed on the big stage for either Miss America or Miss USA, and I have done 100+ head shots sessions for contestants in these systems as well as Mrs. America, Mrs. United States, and Miss International. Before moving to Fort Worth, I was the official photographer of the Miss Indiana pageant as well as several qualifying pageants in that system throughout the state.
A quality head shot is the gold standard in pageant photography, and I can provide this for you using professional lighting in my studio setting. That being said, most of my pageant clients have an interest in fashion shots, so our shoots tend to go this way: (1) Ensure that we get a high quality head shot. (2) Create sash and crown shots useful for program ads that thank sponsors. (3) Have fun creating fashion images with a variety of outfits and styling. The 3 packages below reflect what my clients want in a pageant shoot.
My approach to family portraits is similar to my other packages described above: I work to get a handful of more traditional images—the kinds you might include on Christmas cards—but then I work with the family to capture a wide range of expressive shots involving the entire family together along with mom and dad together and each child separately. (That larger photo above of Phil and Kristi, the kissing couple, was taken during a family photo shoot with their 2 kids. The shot took about 15 seconds to set up, and then I was back to the kids. Fun.)
Here’s what I suggest: Plan a fun activity for your family, and then invite me to grab photos throughout the event. I’ll take opportunities throughout our time to create the kind of family portraits you would expect, and then I’ll capture your family having fun during the rest of the time. A day at the ranch would be perfect. Or an outing to a Rangers game…I could have a blast with that one, including getting shots of you with my big lens from the other side of the stadium at some point. For that matter, I’m also open to destination shoots. I’ve covered family and friends as far away as China and India, so a trip to Galveston on a Saturday…we can make that happen. Or…even a trip to a local park. We can do that too. Whatever the case, please click on the boxes below to get rolling with our shoot.
