AND CUSTOM PHOTO GIFTS
Create With Photos offers a range of personalized photography and training services for your family or business
Let me help you create a visual record of your small conference, meeting, speaking engagement, party, or family gathering. Through a mix of posed photos and candid shots, I will create an online album that documents your event from start to finish. You can then use the images for your social media feeds, website, branding, newsletters, promotional materials, or simply to share with friends and family. See sample event photos.
Web and Brand Images
High-quality photographs help sell your products or services. If you need some great images to enhance your website, a brochure, or your social media presence, contact me to set up a photo shoot. I will capture a profile picture, shots of you working with clients, or close-ups of your product or service. I can shoot food, interiors, and people at your place, or close-up product shots in my studio. See sample web and brand photos.
I will take group or individual portraits of you or members of your family. I am also delighted to photograph your home and garden. Pets are always welcome to participate! I specialize in casual portraits in natural settings and particularly like taking pictures of people in action whether its playing around in the yard or more formal sports activities. I do not provide studio portrait services. See sample family photos.
I will set up a photo shoot to capture your house pet or barn animal alone or with family members. I particularly like photographing action shots of pets playing, farm animals interacting, or horses being ridden. Sessions are typically one to two hours. If you like, I can turn one or more of the photos into treasured keepsakes such as dog bowls, leashes, photo books, calendars, mugs, lockets, tiles, pillows, and even custom boxes of chocolate. See sample pet photos.
Custom Photo Gifts
Want to create a custom mug, t-shirt, pillow, or even a box of chocolates with a favorite photo but don't have the time or skills to do it yourself? I can help you in one of two ways. If you already have an awesome photo, I can edit the photo for you - for example to enhance the color or remove the background - and then use the edited photo to create highly personal keepsakes that will be treasured for years to come. If you don't have any high-quality photos on hand, I can take photos of your home, family, friends, or pets and use those to create the gifts. To begin a project, we can either meet in person or over the phone. I will show you samples of different types of products. Once we decide on the gifts you would like, I will create the designs and upload them to a private section of my online store for you to review. I charge for my time to create the designs and/or take the photos, and then you can buy as many of the products as you wish from the online store. You can even customize the text and colors of the products in your collection. See examples of custom photo gifts.
How Does It Work?
Once you get in touch, we set up a time to discuss the project. Once we have established the time and place for the photo shoot (and rain date if necessary), I will come to your home, business, or event site to take photos.
After the shoot, I sort through the photos and edit the best shots. I never provide clients with unedited photos.
Once edited, I post your photos in a private section of my website. From there, you can view the photos, download them, or share them. You can also buy prints and photo gifts from my site.
What Does It Cost?
I charge for my time shooting and editing images, and also for travel time if I have to travel more than 30 minutes from my location in Weston, MA. For most projects, I charge $90/hr. A discount is available for large, multi-day projects.
Typically it takes about as long to edit the photos as it takes to shoot them. Extra time may be needed for special requests such as removing elements from photos or dropping out backgrounds.
