Your Family Portrait: Why choose a Professional?

Everyone knows a “person with a camera”; someone who takes “good photos”.

Uncle Harry comes back with some great snaps of his trip to the Rockies. Your niece and nephew seem great with their smartphones.

And your friend just got a new digital camera and is anxious to try it out and offered to “do your family for free”!

Now you’ve been thinking of a family portrait and need to find a photographer. So do you go to someone who “takes good photos” or do you choose a professional? What’s the difference?

It’s in the details.

A highly trained photographer has been educated in the nuances of light and shadow and knows how to fine tune it to create a pleasing image. Your friend only can point and shoot.

But most importantly, he or she has learned “people skills”, skills needed to get the best expression, even though you might not be having a good day. An amateur typically gloms people together and hope for the best.

A skilled Professional Photographer knows how to pose groups of people, both large and small quickly, without making the group look stiff and unnatural.

Your Family is important to you. You want something more than just a fun snapshot.

You need a Work of Art!

A family portrait created by Bill Morley is one of the few possessions in your home that with every passing day, increases in value. It’s a wonderful heirloom that will be enjoyed not only by you and your family but for generations to come!

Your portrait is a piece of Fine Art; wall decor for you to enjoy and proudly display while enhancing your surroundings.

Unfortunately, many of today’s so called “photographers” are really just people with cameras who are trying to make a few bucks to supplement their income. They would rather just shoot a bunch of images, burn them onto a disc, and leave you to figure out what to do with them.

This is a great injustice not only to you the client but to your family’s heritage as well.

My goal is to create one-of-a-kind images; images that will become part of your life and make you smile every single day.

“Portraits are meant to be enjoyed and proudly displayed, not stored on a disc.”

From your first meeting with Bill Morley during your consultation to the mounting of your stunning finished wall portrait in your home, we take the necessary time to find out who you are and then, with our skillful eye and attention to detail, handcraft an artistic portrait of your family.

You won’t get this kind of service with “people with cameras”.

This was our son, Elliot’s first encounter with sand. Bill captured wonderful portraits of him playing in it for the first time. We love how he just captured us naturally, while strolling along the shore. We put together a grouping for our family room and it is now the highlight of our home!

Because we had so many unique and wonderful pictures from our wedding, we chose Bill again to document our growing family.  The images you captured of our newborn son are just priceless! I have them displayed on our living room wall and enjoy looking at them every single day!”

We used Bill to take our wedding photography and were extremely happy with the memories he captured. Bill has also provided us with family pictures with our children that we treasure. Bill has always been easy to work with and we have recommended him to many friends and family. He is a wonderful photographer and I am glad we trusted him with some of our biggest memories.
