We are available for all types of portraiture, including maternity, babies, children, high school seniors and families.
Jeff and Rena Colling (both Accolade of Mastery Photographers) love to create portraits with natural poses in a relaxed atmosphere.
We specialize in on-location portraiture. We believe in quality rather than quantity, so we don’t operate like a traditional portrait studio – needing to finish your session quickly to move on to the next waiting clients. You will have our complete attention and personalized service and the time to make sure that we get the best photos possible. We can photograph at your home, yard, park or at a pre-determined location (featuring water, greenery, mountains, desert, etc…). We can bring studio set-ups for indoors, but in most cases the studio type photos are used for young babies (since they are more comfortable in their own familiar environment), while older children, high school seniors, family, and maternity sessions look great in outdoor settings. Just keep in mind that we can do either indoor or outdoor photography and are happy to meet your wishes. Also, another important thing to consider – every portrait reprint ordered from Colling Photography is enhanced and retouched to ensure that you will be pleased with the final results.
Below is some basic information on our different types of portraiture. More detailed information on each of these sessions can be emailed to you – please just go to our contact us page and we will send the information right out. Thanks!
We strive to create portraits that showcase your family’s relationship. Our goal is to capture true smiles and personalities. We will work with you on clothing choices, locations and poses to make you look natural, while also looking your best. Every portrait from Colling Photography includes free basic retouching. Session prices start at just $125.00 (see session pricing below).
Jeff and Rena are also available for these on-location portraits as well: maternity, newborns, babies and children, couples, high school seniors and pets. All sessions are offered with two pricing choices, one including a high resolution disk of images. Please see the session pricing below for more information on these choices.

We do offer the option of purchasing professionally printed reprints from us as a courtesy. You are under no obligation to purchase anything. You do not have to meet with us to place an order. No minimum purchase required.

These photos can feature mom alone or dad and any siblings can join in as well. The recommended timing for these photos is between the seventh and eighth month of pregnancy. If you choose to order any reprint from us they will be enhanced and retouched to ensure that you will be pleased with the final results – this includes removing any stretch marks if you wish! Maternity session pricing is the same as session pricing above.
Newborn and Baby
Newborn and baby sessions are also priced the same as our regular sessions (under session pricing above):
For the sleeping newborn look it is best to do the photos within the baby’s first two weeks. Parents and siblings are also welcome to join in the photos at any baby session as well.
High School Seniors
Senior portraits are taken outdoors, on location. We can help with the location choice – from classic parks to urban environments. Clothing changes and props are encouraged. You are also welcome to bring a friend or a parent along with you. The photos will be done in a relaxed manner – we want to make sure that we have the time to take unique portraits that let your true personality show. The average session lasts about an hour to an hour and a half. We will guide you with poses, etc.. but please also let us know if you have any ideas for your photos – even crazy ideas. We are here to make sure you get what you want! After the session your photos are posted on a password protected site online. You are welcome to order reprints from us if you wish. You do not need to meet with us to place any orders. Free basic retouching is included with all portraits ordered. All reprints are available in your choice of color, bw or sepia, or with custom hand tinting for a unique look for no extra charge. Prices for senior sessions are shown above as a regular session under session pricing.
