Adventure Sessions

Truly custom photography sessions for families who are looking for something beyond normal family portraits for their family. This is NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S PORTRAIT SESSION!!! I have developed a unique approach to family portraiture which I call 'activity based portraiture'. I'm not going to rush you to move on to the next client. This session is a collaboration between the photographer and the family being photographed. Together, we will create a session based on who you are as a family so that we can capture epic family photographs of you all spending time together doing the things that you love. Alongside the epic photographs will also be the quiet photographs. The quiet moments between the chaos that show you just how beautiful the love you all share for each other looks. There is no 'set number of images'. There is instead the goal of creating a wonderful storybook or wall gallery to display in your home. The only concern is that the most wonderful images are being created. Popular locations for these sessions are Calgary, Banff, Kananaskis, Canmore, Jasper and Edmonton. Epic photographs are not just about epic locations though--your home, your town, your cabin or your favourite park are all great locations. I'll work with you to tailor the session specifically to your family.

Weekday session fee: $300         weekend session fee: $500

The session fee is for Dana's time and talent to capture the images on the day of the session. It does not include any prints, products, or digital files. Those are sold separately. The session fee is required to reserve your date. Approximately 3-4 weeks after the session, you will be presented with an online gallery from which to make your purchase decisions. Most clients choose from my collections which are listed below:

collection #1: THE STORYBOOK COLLECTION   $1000

An 11x13" coffee table book including all of the images from the session custom designed by Dana Pugh

collection #2: the digital collection   $1500

The entire gallery of fully edited, high resolution, digital files and a release for personal use.

collection #3: The full meal deal   $2000

Both the coffee table book from the first collection and the digital files from the second collection.

THIS IS MY MOST POPULAR COLLECTION.

PRINTS ARE AVAILABLE STARTING AT $50. CUSTOM GREETING CARDS, CANVAS, AND OTHER PRODUCTS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. JUST ASK IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE FURTHER DETAILS ABOUT THOSE ITEMS.
