Senior Portraits capture that very special time in every young person’s life as they start out on their own life adventure. Don’t trust these precious memories to just anyone! In many cases this may be one of the last professional portraits you will take for years to come. Gary is the only PPA-certified Master Photographer in Northern New York. We have a session to fit everyone with 3 base-types of sittings; add-ons available for the two larger sessions; and options for outdoor/on-location sessions as well! Portrait packages are sold separately from the session and have a wide range of sizes and specialty items. Specials and information can always be found on our Facebook Page

Pet Sessions will provide you with a timeless, quality portrait of your beloved companion. Sessions are based on one pet, but additional pets can be added at an additional cost. Click on an image to view it in its entirety.

Family Sessions are personal portrait sessions which include everything from single person portraits to military dress portraits, and immediate families (mom, dad, and kids) to extended families (3 or more generations, in-laws, etc.). Pets and/or breakdowns can be added to a family session at an additional cost.

Maternity Sessions will capture that special time just before you welcome your little one. We generally suggest the session be held somewhere around 36-38 weeks, but as long as you have an evident belly we can work with it! We always want these sessions to be personalized for you so we suggest bringing a prop or two that is special to you for some of the images. We do have cloth here that can be used as wraps to help you show off a bare belly, and we can work with more traditional clothing as well. Madonna Sessions capture that very special bond between mom and baby. These should be done before the baby is a year old. The cloth we have on hand can be used as wraps for these sessions as well. 

Newborn Sessions are ideally held before the baby is 4 days old, but can be done until approximately 14 days old. Sleeping is the key for these sessions so the baby’s schedule is of utmost importance when scheduling a newborn session. This is another session we want to be personalized for you, so we suggest bringing a prop or two that is special to you for some of the images. You will want the baby naked for most of this session.

Sessions consist of simple head and shoulder poses. This type of session can be done for a single person, or groups of 2 or 3.

If you have a budget you are working with, please let us know. Aerial Aerial Sessions require we hire a pilot unless you can provide one.

Modeling/Headshots Modeling

Headshot Sessions are quote-based sessions. Before we can tell you how much it will cost we will need to know exactly what you need. Modeling & Acting agencies all have their own requirements for portfolios and/or headshots. These are generally done in-studio, but can be on-location if needed. If you have a budget you are working with, please let us know.

Events: Proms/Military Balls, Dance Classes/Skating Clubs

We do not charge for our time, but we do normally have a minimum number of orders required. We bring the backdrop and props to coordinate – you provide the space and a table. Turn-around time is normally within 2-3 weeks of the event.


On-Location Sessions require a quote and a minimum purchase. Quotes are based on where, when, and how many subjects, and are subject to the photographer’s availability.

Passport: American and Foreign Passport

If you need a foreign passport, visa, naturalization, or other ID photo, please bring specifications regarding what exactly is needed so we can ensure you get what you need. Please call to let us know you are coming so we can ensure we have someone here available to assist you. Please call for our hours as they change with the seasons.


We can do restoration or reproduction work on your images in most cases. We will need to see original files or prints prior to determining if it something we can help with, but in most cases we ARE able to restore and/or reproduce the images we are given. If material is copyright-protected you will need to bring a copyright release with you. These services also include making prints from negatives or slides.


In-Studio Bridal Sessions are traditionally meant to be a formal portrait taken before the Wedding Day. Head & shoulders, three-quarter length, and full length poses are available for these sessions depending on what you want. The groom may be included if you wish. Many couples opt to do a Bridal Session after the wedding when their schedules are a little less hectic.
