Portraits and Family Sessions in Philadelphia

Package Info

Portrait Sessions include...


A selection of the best photos from our session. I aim for quality over quantity.  A normal portrait session will produce 10-15 final photos per hour, but more for groups and families. All photos will be color and exposure corrected and edited to the style you see here on my webisite. You will also receive a Personal Use Copyright which allows you to reprint, post, or use the photos however you would like. ​​


All of your images will be delivered to your inbox via a high resolution online gallery.  You will be able to download, print, and share with anyone directly from this gallery!



Photos will be delivered to your inbox within 2 weeks of our session for you to view, share and enjoy.



My main goal when doing a portrait or family session is to bring the images that we create to life in the form of beautiful printed pieces of art. To that end, I promise to help select, print, frame, and install the finished work in your home so that you get the full value out of the images that we create together as you walk by them every day.​​

How do you describe your photographic style?

My style is bright, colorful, and true to life.  I like to work with natural light or to mimic and blend in artificial light with the ambient to create images that are powerful and emotional, but not garish or too theatric. I like to accurately represent my subjects in the most flattering way possible.  When I shoot Headshots, I like to take care to flatter my subjects.  I study the art of posing constantly and like to work with people to evoke and capture candid moments within artful posing situations.   I focus on the subtleties, the leading lines of the body, the softness of the hands, the hint of a smile that tells you so much more than "say cheese".

Describe a situation when you went above and beyond for client?

I try to always go above and beyond for my clients, and because I like to plan meticulously and thoroughly discuss details and logistics, this leads to me rarely running into situations where I need to do anything dramatic to "save the day" for the client. In a city like Philadelphia, this means that we will thoroughly plan out the location and logistics to make sure that everything will go smoothly. 

What is your favorite piece of equipment and why?

My Canon R5 and my 70-200 f2.8 lens working together are amazing!  The images are so incredibly sharp, the autofocus nails every shot perfectly, the compression of the telephoto combined with the wide aperture creates beautiful separation which allows my images to be all about my subjects.  I really love this lens/camera combo.

You deserve great  photography!

And I want to be part of what makes it great.

For this reason, I do not proceed with all Portrait and Headshot Photography inquiries. I only proceed with those that I am certain fit my set of skills and align
with my brand values.

"Sam's responsiveness gave me a good feeling. After viewing his beautiful art on both is website and on his Instagram page, we scheduled a call. We discussed the timeline of the event and I told him a bit about what I was looking for in our photos--some portraits but plenty of natural and photogenic shots as well. Not only was Sam lovely and super professional, but he captured the evening beautifully! He literally didn't miss a beat!"

"Sam is hands down the best photographer I’ve ever worked with. If you want high quality work from someone that cares about their craft, then look no further. I highly recommend Sam as I’ve also had friends who hired him for weddings and were delighted with the photos he captured. His meticulous editing skills, capturing all the right moments, and his positive and professional attitude are the perfect combination that make him stand out"

"These are the best photos I’ve had of myself in a long time. He worked with me to get the results that were just what I wanted and made me look better than I knew I could."
