Professional Family, High School Senior Senior, Baby and Child Portraits
Professional portrait photography should be more creative and individualized than the standard issue found in a department store.
"This is perfect. I just quickly looked at the pics and they are great. There is no doubt that we will all spread the good word of you and your services should we come across anybody looking for a good photographer. We were all very pleased that day with how everything was handled and you couldn't have made all the logistics leading up to the pictures any easier."
-- Tyler Roth
As it is with all my work, my family portrait photography is unconditionally guaranteed – you must be completely THRILLED (not just satisfied) with your portraits, or your money back. I also guarantee a relaxed, stress-free, flexible approach to help guide you through the process of carefully determining and organizing your photographic needs for the session.
One of the things that separates me from all the other photographers in the area is that I love creating family portraits that are not just an ordinary "record" of the way your family looks at this moment, but something that expresses your relationships, emotions & love that you share together at this moment in your lives.
"My family and I recently had a photo session with Michael Rawlings while on vacation in Vail. Communication with Michael before our meeting was great. There were 9 of us along with a toddler. Plus, we had two families who wanted different outdoor backgrounds. Michael was great with ideas for all. We ended up having to change our original day and time. Michael was flexible and had several backup ideas ready to go. I loved that he didn't have an allotted amount of time. We were able to take our photos with no worry of time, which worked great with the 16 month old! Michael had real patience and caring toward making our family photos what we wanted. He even reviewed them with us on site so we knew we were captured some great shots. Thanks, Michael, for all your hard work!"

As you can see, the versatility in outdoor locations in and around Vail and Beaver Creek generate genuine images in a natural, personal environment.
The complete professional portrait experience begins with a consultation session to discuss locations convenient to you, clothing and your preferences for poses. The session investment includes the on-line posting of the images for sharing and ordering prints, as well as complimentary images for phones, computers, or social media.
