The Value of a Printed Portrait

That said, we do understand that a lot of families do want digital photos so we offer both digital images and photo print packages. We also include a digital file of any portrait print that you order for social media.
Investing in a Family Photo
There are several important reasons to invest in a family photo and each person has their own.
1. Life goes by so quickly; family photos document a precious moment that will pass in the blink of an eye.
2. Doing family photos is so much fun! It’s a chance to get together, smile, laugh and create some memories that will last forever.
3. Whether it’s for your yearly Christmas card or a framed photo for Grandma, family photos also make a great gift.
4. We all have those snapshots of the kids, or the one where you set the timer and made a run for it, but it’s time for YOU to get in front of the camera! It will mean the world to your family to have great photos of one of the most important people in their lives.
5. Tired of those stock photo prints that are hanging on your wall? What better way to show your children and family how much they are valued than to have a beautiful family portrait displayed in your home.

"When my husband and I first learned we were pregnant after 3 years of trying, I new immediately I would want to capture many of the special moments that would follow. Our first photo session with Viewpoint Photography was scheduled when I was 7 months pregnant and we were beyond happy with the pictures. Our son is now 3 and we have since had an additional 5 sessions with another one planned for this spring. We also have several other friends who have used Viewpoint Photography and who have been as happy with the end result as we have. Pictures portray the story of your life and Chad has an amazing ability to capture that story in a very relaxed, stress free environment. We are always impressed by Chad’s creativity, spontaneity, eye for detail, incredible patience and understanding demeanour... even when we threw two dogs into the mix. We delight in the photos Chad has taken for us over the past 3 years, which are displayed throughout our home and we are enthusiastic about our future sessions together to continue creating the picture book of our life." - Glen, Stephanie and Theo Downey
"We just wanted to thank you for capturing such beautiful memories of our family. We have enjoyed your services on more than one occasion and have never been disappointed. You make the “shoot” very comfortable, and our kids seem to warm right up to you. The end result is just some amazing photos that are high quality, and will last a lifetime. We often say we don’t know how you get such incredible poses, because the photo session is so painless. Anyways, take care and thanks again. See you next year for the next family shoot!" - Chris & Barb Bassil
"Thank you so much for all the work you did to give us a beautiful visual memory of a truly memorable day! Everyone was so pleased and impressed with the quality of the photos as well as your charm, wit and professionalism. If we ever need the services of a professional photographer you WILL be the first person we contact! From the bottom of our hearts, Chad - Thank you." - Bob & Janet Braybrook
"I am so happy with our photos! This was our first experience having family photos taken and it couldn’t have been more fun! Chad was great with the kids and was totally prepared (he even brought bug spray!!!). I look forward to having Viewpoint Photography as a part of our next family photos to document the drastic changes of the kids!" - Sally Verheyden
"Easily the best experience with a photographer to date! Chad was instantly able to put my family at ease and capture some captivating photographs. I will treasure them forever. Simply cannot recommend him enough and must mention their exceptional customer service!!!!"

"Chad is very professional and knows what he is doing! His studio is very clean and comfortable. Our entire family— young and old— had a lot of fun during the portrait session. We plan to contract Viewpoint Photography to take more portraits as our family grows. Thank you, Chad, for capturing beautiful memories for us."- William Tigor
"Chad did an amazing job with our family portraits! He has a wonderful eye for detail, is infinitely patient, and even got our two teenagers interested and engaged in the process. We appreciated his transparency regarding the cost of photos, and we were absolutely delighted with the results. When I needed to have professional headshots completed, I also booked with Chad. He was able to perfectly execute the look I wanted, and I was delighted by the multiple excellent proofs I was able to select from!" - Michelle Hoover
"Had a wonderful experience with viewpoint photography! Chad was great with our family portrait session. He was professional and added much comfort to our session since we never had professional photos as a family before. The pictures came out amazing and we enjoyed every aspect of our experience!" - Brenda Tran
"We booked an outdoor family photography session with Viewpoint as part of a deal that we obtained through Groupon and was just amazed at how easy it was to work with Chad. We have two active little girls and they aren't usually very still in photographs but Chad was able to capture those moments of joy and love that my kids had during the session. The photos turned out amazing and I would not go anywhere else for family photographs or anything else. Chad and Janine do beautiful work. It was totally worth it." - Maria Burke
"My wife and I have worked with Viewpoint on a few occasions now. Proposal pictures, wedding pictures, and now family pictures. Chad & Janine have always been extremely professional and make the process stress free. I would highly recommend using Viewpoint Photography for any special occasion you want to capture and remember forever." - Lyndon Hodgins
