Colling Photography Gold Canyon, AZ

Portrait Sessions

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 (water, a green scene, mountains, desert, etc…). We can bring studio set-ups for indoors, but in most cases the studio type photos are for maternity and young babies (where they are more comfortable in their own familiar environment), while older children, high school seniors and family 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!
