Documentary Family Photography – Give it a Try!

If you’re on the fence and not sure whether you’ll like the images produced from an at-home documentary style session, here’s an option to consider.   With a “Give it a Try” session, there’s no initial cost.  You can see your images, and then decide if you want to buy them.

Here’s how it works:

Contact me to set up a “Give it a Try” session.  This is an at-home, inside and/or outside session that lasts about one and a half hours.  It can include your whole family or just your kids.  You can pick something that you’d like documented or just let things unfold while I’m there.  The key is to consider what’s meaningful to you, because that will make meaningful images.  Here are a couple things to consider:

    • Think of your favorite things about your family.  What do you enjoy doing together? Reading? Baking? Playing games? Playing in the backyard? Would you like pictures of these activities?
    • What are your interests and values? Maybe someone plays an instrument, has a special talent, or a favorite hobby that you’d like to document.
    • What is unique about this phase in your family’s life?  Maybe you have a little one who will soon pass out of toddlerhood, teenagers who like to compete with each other, or a home that’s special to you.

After the session, you’ll receive a link and password to an online gallery of your edited images.  You can view the gallery and then decide for yourself if you like the images.  There’s no commitment at all to purchase images!  If you like what you see, you can buy the images and download them right away.  Digital images can be purchased as follows:

1 digital image for $25

5 digital images for $75.

The complete collection of digital images for $125.

Of course I want you to love the images that you get!  But if you don’t, no worries.  I love doing photography and love getting opportunities to learn more.  The “Give it a Try” sessions are a win for me, and hopefully a win for you too!


The fine print:  One “Give it a Try” session per family.  Location must be within ~30 minutes of Glenville, NY.  Digital download purchases are final and cannot be changed or refunded.  The photographer reserves the right to use “Give it a Try” session images on this website and other social media sites.  Session availability is limited and subject to change.
