Moab Family Photography Sessions

Moab, Utah is an amazing place for a family photo session. The desert red rocks make for a fantastic backdrop for family portraits, couples engagement photos and elopement weddings. I have been to Moab many times since I first started visiting back in the 1990’s and is still my favourite place. I have spent many hours photographing Arches national Park and Canyonlands. I love the scenery and vast open space where you can wander and get away from it all.

Moab, Utah – Family photo sessions

I have taken photos for families at private homes, Sorrel River Ranch, Arches National Park and Canyonlands. The best time of day for a photo session is 2 hours before sunset, during the summer it is incredibly hot during the day.

My favorite place is Dead Horse Point in Canyonlands. The horseshoe river bend and canyon landscape is an amazing backdrop for couples, engagement sessions, proposals and elopement weddings.

What can i expect on a photo session? My photo sessions are more of an adventure where i will take you around to a variety of locations to take fun photos.

First we choose a location, Arches National Park is my favourite choice for young kids because where I take you there are no steep cliff drop offs. Dead Horse Point makes a fantastic backdrop for couples and families with older kids who like adventure. In Arches I like to start at Turret Arch, Double Arch and then head to an overlook that gives a wide open view of the park. To get to Turret Arch there is a 10 minute walk from the parking lot that climbs up rock steps to the base. At Dead Horse Point I know of several great spots along the rim that are off the beaten trail but walking distance from car park is short.

Location There are so many locations in the Moab area for a photo shoot, wether it is Fisher Towers, a specific arch, a ranch or private home with red rocks all around it’s hard to find a bad location and I will travel anywhere. Lighting is super important so if there is a specific back ground you want let me know so I can look at the best time of day to shoot there.

During our session I will guide you on posing ( don’t worry no stiff forced poses – I like to pose in a way that flatters the body as well as take fun candid shots) and I will make it as fun as possible getting creative with my camera to give you interesting photos. I work well with children ( I used to teach kids to snowboard – I got this!) and dogs are welcome at Dead Horse Point state park. I am open to your ideas as well !

How/ when will I get my images? After the session I will start editing right away and upload them to an online album that i will send you via an email link. Images will be full sized big enough to print into a poster and downloadable. I can also mail the images on a USB stick if you prefer that option. You will have full rights to do whatever you like with the images and I will have full rights to use them for my social media accounts unless you do not want them shared. I will provide you with a signed form at the session for printing rights often requested in print shops. Expect to start seeing images within 24 hours and completed album within 3-4 days.

Price Starting at $350 for 1 1/2 hours shoot, I find that time is just long enough to keep people entertained before getting tired and children hangry. Cost includes my travel time, shooting and editing time and all photos from the session ( I don’t set a limit of photos or charge anything extra minimum 150+ photos)

I am open to your ideas – large groups, couples, half / full day action off road jeep adventure, getting engaged or eloping I am in ! I would love to photograph your memories for you. Just message me to discuss details, pricing and we can go from there!.

To enquire or book a session please let me know the dates, how many people and location you prefer and I will respond within 24 hours – I look forward to hearing from you !
