Your Investment – Session Fees, Print & Product Pricing & More

“Portraits are not just for our walls. They are a legacy for generations to come. That’s why I feel that the time I spend with you is an investment. My creative work is individual. And each session is unique, personalized for you and your family in its own way.” — David Trotter


Your Conscious Portraits Session – “Not your Typical Portrait Session”

Conscious Portraits Photography takes professional family portraiture to an exciting new level. An award winning photographer and artist, David Trotter brings over 2 decades of experience to each session.

David’s signature “painting with light” techniques equal truly amazing portraits you and your loved ones will treasure for ages. A portrait session with David is truly a unique, fun and collaborative experience. Expect a non-traditional, relaxed atmosphere without feeling rushed, without time limits, and without the standard canned, stiff poses typical of many portrait sessions.

For the highest possible quality most Conscious Portrait Sessions are shot on-location. This could be your home, a park, the beach, or a favorite place. David utilizes natural light and professional portable studio lighting based on your needs.

David’s preference and personal style is to create images using mostly natural and available light, pushing the limits and breaking many standard “portrait rules”. David achieves amazing results in any kind of weather. He enjoys working on cloudy, overcast days, even rainy days. He can even create phenomenal images working in dark or dingy conditions. David loves variety and treats each session like an artist starting with a blank canvas. From a mixture of urban and classic, contemporary and simplistic, rustic and ethereal to magical and spiritual a Conscious Portrait sessions offers a one-of-a-kind experience and portraits that will become valuable family possessions to be cherished for decades and generations to come.



PET FRIENDLY SESSIONS – Pets are always welcome. Want to include the family pet in your portrait session? This is never a problem. David loves animals and enjoys including them in family sessions.

David shoots in a very casual relaxed fashion– allowing children and family members to explore, relax, and just be themselves. Please allow 1-3 hours for your session for this process to be its best!

The process starts with a phone consultation where we will discuss all the elements and options of your personalized session to achieve a series of unique portraits that you will treasure for a lifetime.

The session itself can be as short as 1 hour or as long as 3 hours.

All sessions are for 1-3 persons in your immediate family ($25 per each additional person).
