I’m here to document you, your special moments and the significant people in your life. I offer family photography sessions, engagement sessions, or senior photography sessions as well as candid engagement and individual lifestyle pictures.
Location is important for family photography sessions and Door County is home to me. Through my landscape photography, I am familiar with plenty of scenic locations up and down this beautiful peninsula that will serve as the perfect backdrop for your images. Even though I call Door County home, I am happy to work with you to create beautiful images wherever you are.
I like to shoot family photography sessions outdoors because I feel a natural setting make for the very best images. If you have a special place that you have in mind, that’s great! If not, I have many places in mind that I would love to suggest.
One thing you should know about my family sessions is that I am not the kind of photographer who will put you in stiff poses where every finger and toe is perfectly placed. I have a much more relaxed approach that will show your family in a more casual light. Of course, we will get nice photos of you together that will look great on your wall! But we’ll also get photos of you all walking together, hugging each other, playing with the kids, etc. Basically, it’s a much more fun approach to your family photos!
About Your Family Photo Session
I have three sessions to choose from based on time. My sessions range from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The session that is perfect for you will depend on your family and the photos you are looking for.
Standard Session is my most popular choice because there is the perfect amount of time to get a nice variety of family photos.
The standard session 45-60 minute session is perfect for most families. It will be perfect for those who want a variety of photos at one or two nearby locations.
The double session is for families who really want to take time to get that perfect family photo. This session is up to 2 hours long and will allow for plenty of time for large groups, outfit changes, and even exploring multiple locations.
If you just want a new couple of nice photos of your small family, a 20-30 minute mini session would be right for you.
The mini-session will allow just enough time for one location, a few different poses, and even maybe one or two individual shots of the kids.
After your session, I will go through your photos and cull out the blurry ones and the ones that didn’t turn out for whatever reason.
Once your photos are ready, I will deliver your final images via an online gallery. From this gallery, you’ll be able to view, share, order prints, and download your photos.
Included with every session are all the high resolution digital files from the photoshoot. No need to pick and choose a limited number of images!
Along with your image downloads, you will receive a print release that will allow you to have your photos printed wherever you wish.
One thing I want you to be aware of is that larger prints require extra care in order to guarantee the best possible print. So for big prints, I would highly recommend that you order larger prints through your online gallery. If a print is going up on a wall, I want the print to be perfect.
Many big box print labs differ in paper choice, color accuracy, sharpness, photo brightness, and overall quality. I work closely with the same professional printing lab partners I use for my fine art landscape prints and together we ensure you get the perfect prints.
I absolutely love when a family is happy with their pictures! Here’s what some of my past clients have said about their session!
Great experience with Luke
“Great experience with Luke at a small beach near our AirBnB. He had great ideas and was patient with our four kids. Our images are truly beautiful, and we love treasure them for many years! Too many good ones to choose which to hang up!”
It Was Such a Breeze
Our family reunion in Door County was captured beautifully by Luke. He was patient with our large group of 20, provided multiple unique vantage points, and provided quick and easy communication! It was such a breeze that even those from our group who weren’t especially thrilled with having pictures taken remarked that the whole photo shoot “‘was pretty easy and painless!'”
I would absolutely recommend Luke
“We absolutely loved working with Luke! Not only did our pictures turn out beautiful but he was incredibly patient with our little guy who went into full on toddler mode during the session 😊. I would absolutely recommend Luke and look forward to working with him again!”
