Family Portraits

Mike Yare Photography is now offering family photo portraits. The locations are prime Western NY venues. Each session will last for a minimum of 2 hours, there will be a photographer and an assistant to help with family posing, outdoor lighting effects and work with kids and your pets. Each family will receive a wall ready 11×14 canvas print, your pictures will be edited for light, sharpness, color balance and cropped to the perfect dimensions for framing. You will own all of your pictures, you own the copyrights, they will be presented to you on a flash drive. Our equipment is the most up to date Sony and Canon mirror-less camera systems with stunning resolution and image quality.


Of course you are welcome to pick any location that you like, but we are offering to work with you in some of the most scenic and breath taking venues in Western NY, respectfully we are not backyard or living room photographers.
