Welcome to Hermann Photography!

Below you can find details about my photographic style, services, and what to expect before, during and after your session. If you have any questions shoot me an email or give me a ring!

Thank you for considering me to be your photographer. I will work hard to earn and keep your business. My photographic style could be described as photo journalistic or lifestyle. That means that I like to tell a story by capturing all the things about my subject(s) that makes them tick in that very moment in time. Looking back years from now, you’ll see more than just a snapshot, you’ll be able to remember those big wide open yawns of your sweet sleepy newborn, the sparkly bright wonderment in your proud baby’s first steps, the mischievous glint that sparkles in newfound toddler independence or that goofy, shy, toothless grin of your 1st grader!

I like to make each of my photos really shine and that means that I do post-processing in Photoshop to put that extra moxie on – but at the same time I keep them looking natural and authentic. I am an artist and I tap into that creativity during every step of the way, from set design, to the shoot, to post-processing. Each image tells a little something about the subject, and I’m a real stickler for details.

Another important aspect of custom photography is that I will work to make your experience special. People should love having their photos taken because you’re sure going to remember exactly how you were feeling every time you see that photo hanging on your wall! You can expect to be thrilled with your photos, and overly satisfied with the entire experience.

To ensure a good fit and that my style suits you, please take look through the various galleries. I am always open to new experiences and love new challenges. I have experience with real estate, promo, and event photography as well! We can meet on-location, at your home, or in my studio. Have camera, will travel! For additional details and pricing guide send me a message through the contact form or call me!

General Family Photos

Family photography is divided into either full sessions or mini sessions depending on the size of your family and what you want out of your session. Let's make an adventure out of it - or we can keep it short and sweet - whatever will work best for you! I have had the pleasure of photographing plenty of newborn babies, kids, teens, and families with extra special needs. I have an abundance of love and patience to let my subjects relax, be themselves and truly shine!

Maternity & Newborn

I just love, love, LOVE babies! I offer a range of packages to fit your budget. I will work with you to create beautiful loving memories that you will cherish forever! Trust only an experienced newborn photographer to know how to properly and safely position and care for your beautiful tiny baby!

1st Birthdays, 2nd Birthdays, In-BeTween & Beyond

I have worked with kids of every age and celebrated many a birthday and milestone with my camera rapid firing all along the way. I have had the pleasure of capturing annual photos with numerous families and it is always amazing to me how much they grow and change through the years - always just becoming more of themselves. Every age, every milestone, I've got you covered!

Crafting “THE ONE”

I always try my best to get your family to all be looking, and certainly will take plenty of frames to get that perfect family photo without having to manipulate it at all afterwards. And, while I’d love to take credit, and have everyone believe that I cast some sort of magic spell on babies, toddlers, teens and, okay let’s face it, some adults too, so that everyone is all looking with eyes open and their best smiles on, their bodies and hands and feet all posed just so… The truth is that a good number of my best family photos are “recomposed”. This means that I have taken more than one photo and combined them in Photoshop to create “THE ONE”, so that we see the best of everyone in one shot. I take my time to make sure that the end product looks absolutely, completely, really, truly authentic and natural, moving in some cases one pixel at a time, and no one will know, but you – and me, of course.

What to Expect After Your Session

With each session you will have a specific number of image choices that you'll pick from a private online proof album. The finished images are burned onto a CD or USB thumb drive along with a partial copyright release, (you can print them wherever and however you like but no changes to the photos themselves please), as well as a printing tips document to help you achieve professional quality prints at seriously awesome prices. Each finished image is burned as follows: uncropped, cropped and print-ready at 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10, plus any additional sizes requested per image. The entire set is full resolution for highest quality professional color printing. Additional photo treatments, such as black & white high-contrast, chocolate & cream toning, or cross process filters are done by request. If you need assistance with the printing process, or just want to order prints through me, I can do that too!

Graphic design for invitations, announcements, photo collages, photo books, etc. is something I also enjoy doing. Seeing your professional photographs in beautifully crafted printed media is a great way to enjoy and preserve them whether for yourself, home or to give as a gift! Pricing based on the products & time involved.

THANK YOU for considering Hermann Photography! I look forward to working with you!
