Greg Samborski Photography's Family Session - Glimpse



This one and a half hour family packages includes 20 memorable family photos that will be perfect for the family photo album. Naturally it takes time to warm to a stranger, let alone one who is pointing a camera at you! The last thing you want is to feel rushed during your photo session. One and a half hours creates space for us to get familiar and for those beautiful, candid moments to arise. I recommend limiting the locations and wardrobe changes to one or two so we can focus on interactions. This package is perfect for families who want natural looking photos. You’re not looking for that mechanical, one size fits all experience, one that pushes you through a series of fake backdrops, forced poses and heavy photoshop filters. You want something real, photos that tell your story. It’s not easy right? Finding a photographer capable of capturing the essence of your relationship in an artistic way. Well, now you’ve found one, and my speciality is putting people at ease in front of my camera. My strategy is simple. I listen to you. I learn about you. I engage with you. Even if you've never had professional photos done, I work with so many couples who are in the same boat. Part of my job as a photographer is to make you feel comfortable and over the years, I have learned how to bring anyone's true personality out for the camera to see.


Can we extend our photo session? Certainly! An extra hour costs $200 USD and includes 10 additional images.; Can we reduce our session time / quantity of photos? Of course – BUUUUUT the price remains the same so I suggest taking advantage of the full session :); How many people can join our session? The listed session pricing covers up to four people. Additional family members/friends/relatives/pets are $100 each. This is because each additional being requires more shooting and editing time.; Can we choose the photos we want? Yes! By default you get a private online “proofing” gallery where you can select your favourite images. If you prefer that I make the selections, just let me know.; Can we get ALL the images from the session, even the ones we didn’t choose? I try to discourage this as it’s unfinished work, but, if you REALLY want all the images, I can deliver the UNEDITED, LOW RESOLUTION, WATERMARKED PROOFS for an extra $100.

On the day of the shoot, we will spend 10 or so minutes getting to know each other so you and your family feel more comfortable in front of the camera and look more natural. The shoot will consist of one and a half hours where I will snap those beautiful candid photos that you want. I don’t demand that you spend the whole time posed in front of the camera; often I find it is these moments of natural interactions and relaxation that result in some of the best photos. And guess what, it’s all on me! While our photo session may have ended, our relationship is far from over. Two weeks later you will receive 20 fully processed, high resolution images via a downloadable link and if you would like more, can buy those photos for an additional $10 each.

Hi, my name is Greg and I‘m passionate about my craft. In the end, isn‘t that what you want, someone who puts you at ease, listens, delivers as promised and goes that extra mile every step of the way? I want to impress you. Admittedly my desire for praise is also my weakness. I‘m simply not one of those artists who is content merely by the process of making art. I want others to see what I create and for my work to evoke such strong feelings that I can hear you laugh, see you smile and feel your happiness.
