FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS

Have you ever noticed how quickly your kids grow up? Seems like just a moment ago you could pick them up and put them on your shoulders, now your back breaks with the very idea of doing that. 

Don't let these moments pass you by!

Family portraits are an important memory keeper for generations to come. If your kids shudder at the idea of having to get crammed into a photo studio with a mean stranger yelling at them to smile. And the idea of getting everyone through that makes you shudder as well, don't worry. We have you covered.

We come to you, where your family is most comfortable.

If that is your house, a nearby park, the beach, wherever, we will meet you there for some truly unique family photos that you will cherish as your kids seem to grow ever quicker. If you prefer, you can also come take photos at our Ballard studio!

In addition, we know the difference between a faked and forced smile. We are fantastic at getting candid shots of your kids doing what they do best. Being kids! A genuine smile is something everyone can see, and is something you'd rather hang up on your wall. 

All your photos are delivered digitally to you. You can make prints, post them on Facebook for friends and family to see, or store them on your computer. If you would like, we also offer print packages for your family photos, saving you some time and trouble by shipping it directly to your house.

Kids don't stay that way forever, capture the genuine moments right with Flying Tortuga!

Bouidor

Interested in boudoir? 

here is a blurb from Wikipedia:

"Boudoir photography is a photographic style featuring intimate, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and their romantic partners. It is distinct from glamour and art nude photography in that it is usually more suggestive rather than explicit in its approach to nudity and sexuality, features subjects who do not regularly model, and produces images which are not intended to be seen by a wide audience, but rather to remain under the control of the subject."

We believe everyone should have great photos of themselves, and feel good taking them. Boudoir is a great way to do just that! Whether you want photos for yourself, or a special someone, we always find people walk away feeling amazing after one of these shoots.

Here are a few more details:

  • We shoot both guys and gals.
  • We have both male and female photographers available, if you would be more comfortable shooting with someone of your sex.
  • We bring the lights and a few props to you. We want the photo shoot to be where you are most comfortable.
  • Most people prefer the photos take place in their own home, or at a hotel room (as in the example photos).
  • Every effort will be taken to protect your privacy. You're in full control of who gets to see them.
  • Makeup artists are available for hire upon request.

Frequently Asked Questions


FAQ

How many total prints will I receive from my photo shoot?

The amount of photos you receive from your shoot may vary based on your photographer, the weather conditions, number of outfit changes, and how long your photo shoot is scheduled for. However, on average, 15-25 distinct photos are produced per hour, and you will receive all of them via your digital gallery once they are edited. 

Do you charge extra for wardrobe changes?

We do not charge extra for wardrobe changes. However, the time scheduled for your photo shoot does not stop during your wardrobe changes. So change fast!

When will I be charged for the photo shoot?

Payment is due at the time delivery. After your photo shoot is over, and your photos are edited, an email will be sent to you containing a link to your online gallery and an online invoice for the photo shoot. Your photos will not be available for download until after payment for the photo shoot has been received.

Are there any additional travel and editing fees?

The total cost of the shoot is included in our hourly rate. This includes travel and editing fees. However, tax is not included in the total price.

What if I have a specific photographer in mind?

When booking your shoot, there is an option to select the photographer you would like to work with if you have a preference. However, that photographer might be already booked on your selected date.
