An environmental portrait was probably one of the first types of photographic image made. Before studios were set up with backdrops, photographers were using large format cameras on tripods in tents or outside on Civil War battlefields, and in cities and rural areas alike.  

My portraits are made using your choice of locations - in your favorite chair, in your garden, in a park, in the mountains, by or in a river, with your family, favorite person or pet, or by yourself - generally using natural light whenever possible.  Although I do not photograph people in a studio, the portraits I make are very compelling, and can be used for websites, business cards, and in advertising, and are suitable for framing. 
Last year, I photographed a family reunion and loved it.  The hourly rate is the same as the environmental portrait session rate.
