I do things a little different than most photographers: I give you all the photos edited & high resolution to keep. Why? Frankly you can print them yourself for a few dollars rather than paying me hundreds to do the same thing. I like to shoot all the photos candidly and have you all moving around and in different combinations. I avoid the matchy-matchy white shirt and jeans look if possible. Generally family portrait sessions can be done at Laguna Beach (or a local park in Orange County) and usually I will recommend photographing late in the day so you are not squinting.
If this sounds like what you would be interested in I charge $400 (no additional fees).
“Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! Jason's pictures of our family were out of this world. I have to admit all of us were a little nervous. What to wear? How do we pose? Will I have a crooked smile? However, Jason immediately put us at ease and began shooting those pictures boom, boom, bam. The poses, the shadows, the colors radiated glamour and professionalism. He is the number one photographer to shoot family portraits, models, magazine fashions, and anything that you can imagine.” Kim (Yelp)
“We feel like we hit the jackpot by finding Jason, he is incredibly talented! The pictures that Jason took of our family are the BEST that we have ever had done...and we have professional pictures taken every year! Jason was super easy to work with (no drama!!) and turned our pictures around quickly. We were visiting Orange County from the East Coast and decided we wanted to take family pictures on the beach. Within moments of contacting Jason, we had our session scheduled. He was generous with the time he spent with our family, came to the beach where we are staying and honestly the pictures are AMAZING. We now plan on using Jason every summer when we come to the area to vacation. I cannot recommend him highly enough, check out his website, he is the real deal.” Beverly (Yelp)
“I was looking to have family photos, as well as my daughters senior pictures done while vacationing on Newport Beach. After being unimpressed with local family photographers I found through web searches, I searched commercial photographers and found Jason. His style was what I was looking for and on his website he said included family photography in his services. I emailed him 2 weeks before our vacation, and he was very accommodating and helpful in suggesting what beach areas were less crowded, and when the lighting would be best. He is easy going, yet extremely professional. He made everyone comfortable and captured some beautiful images of my family. He had the proofs to us when promised, and edited We will probably do this every year. Glad I found him.” Kristen (Google Reviews)
“I researched a bunch of photographers in the Newport area to take our family reunion photos while we were in town for 1 week on vacation. I chose Jason because I really liked how he emphasized capturing "real" pictures of everyone. He was great to work with and dealt really well with members of my family that were not too happy about getting pictures done (a bit hostile) along with 6 kids under the age of 9 that were all over the place.:) Jason captured great family photos of everyone together as well as individual family photos. He then just took pictures of everyone interacting with each other - I LOVE those pictures! Another great aspect was that he was so quick in turning around the pictures - this was key since we were only in town for 1 week. I highly recommend Jason and plan on using him again when we plan another family reunion to Newport. -Kirsten (Google Reviews)
