“How You Can Capture Your Family’s

Happiest Moment, And Hold On To It Forever...”

        If Your Family Is The Most Important Thing In The World To You...

        If You Want A Memory You Will Cherish Forever...
        If You Realize How Quickly Things Can Change...
        This Information Will Be Priceless To You.

Dear Friend,

Your family is changing so fast, isn’t it? Your children (and yes, they will be your “children” even when they’re married and have kids of their own) are growing up, and becoming more like adults every day. Don’t you wish you could just “freeze time” and hold these special moments forever?

My name is Stephen Driver, and capturing wonderful family memories is what I’ve devoted my life to. I’m a professional family photographer, but more than that, I’m just like you... I’m a family person.

“It was a great pleasure to work with Stephen to photograph our ‘Family’. His patience with our 4 active dogs was amazing. He has a special way of getting everyone's attention at once and capturing the best expressions.“

Brink and Linda Bloembergen  Louisville, KY


YOU CAN EMAIL me with any questions you have, and I will EMAIL you back within 48 hours!


Can you relate to this at all? I wake up every morning and wonder where the time is going. Do you ever do that? Have you noticed that, the older you and your children get, the faster time seems to fly? I’m very lucky - I get to see my grown-up sons Jason and Daniel on a semi-regular basis, although they now live in Colorado. But there’s one thing I regret...

To Have A Fine Family Portrait Of Jason, Daniel, And Me

back when they were younger...

This is going to be hard to believe. I’m a professional photographer, and I never had a family photograph created of my family when my children were still living at home.


What I wouldn’t give to be able to go back in time, and capture those moments on film. That’s one of the reasons I became a professional photographer - I want to help other families hold on to their family memories forever, and never regret not having a family portrait done.

    Throughout This Page You’ll See And Hear From Families In Kentucky Who Have Had Their Lives Forever Enriched By the Lasting Memories Of Family Portraits.

But There Were Things Even They Didn’t Know When They Started Looking For A Photographer...”

If you’re at all like most of the families on this website, you probably haven’t given a lot of thought to having a family portrait created. Don’t worry - that’s pretty normal. You’ve got a lot of things going on in your life. Life is busier and crazier than ever in 2016, and family life in particular seems to be happening at an ever-accelerating pace.

5 Myths, Mistakes, And Misconceptions

About Having A Family Portrait Created -

The Stuff 99% Of All People In The World Don’t Know:

By visiting my website, you must at least be considering having a portrait of your family created. Well, that’s great - you will probably never make a decision that will bring you more lasting joy. However, there are some things you NEED to know before you and your loved ones step in front of any camera. By the time you finish reading this single page, you will know everything you need to know about how to have the perfect family portrait created - the one you will cherish forever!

You may feel that having a family portrait done is going to be a lot of work on your part. Well, it isn’t! In fact, that could almost be one of the “myths or mistakes” right there. As long as you know the information on this site, it won’t be any work at all on your part.

....So, let’s jump right in!

# 1 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception:
“There’s No Way To GUARANTEE

I Will Love My Family Portraits.”

WRONG! Depending on who creates your family portrait, that is. Just suppose you

had a family portrait created, and your son or daughter didn’t look natural in it. The photograph was “ok,” but it didn’t turn out spectacular. Should you have to pay for it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! I believe strongly that no one should ever have to pay for a photograph that isn’t PERFECT. That’s why I am the only photographer in Kentucky to offer the following guarantee:


A Guarantee Unlike Any You’ve Ever Heard:

If Your Family Doesn’t Look The Happiest, Best They’ve Ever Looked Together In These Photographs...

If You Don’t Cry (tears of joy) When You Look At Them -

You Don’t Pay Me For Them.

That’s my guarantee and personal promise to you. As far as I know, there’s no other photographer around that will make you this super guarantee. These photographs will be completely meaningless to you unless they convey the real emotions and relationships between you and your loved ones. That’s the only real reason to have a family portrait created.

So, if FOR ANY REASON you feel that the photographs I create for you are anything less than perfect - you don’t pay me for them. It’s that simple.

“Our portraits are hung and look fabulous in the foyer. Your patience with our children was amazing and your soft tone kept our 2.5, 3.5 and 5 year olds happy throughout the experience. You certainly did a fantastic job capturing each personality! We recommend you for your professionalism, expertise and high quality of work, plus we love the frames. We really enjoyed having the portraits taken at our home and they will be treasured for years to come.”

John and Erin Hudson

I Only Wish I Had A Photograph Of All Of Us Together. That Would Be One Of The Most Priceless Things I Own. .

Time is the one thing that none of us have enough of. It’s the one thing that money can’t buy. It’s the one thing that we all would give just about anything for. Through photography, we can hold on to the moments in our lives that we wish could last forever. And, if it’s done correctly, these same photographs can become almost like works of art that we display in our homes for everyone to see and share.

Don’t Make The Decision As To Who Will Photograph Your
Family Until You Chat With Me. There Are Things
You’ll Want To Ask The Photographers...

There’s no cost, and no obligation to just chat with me, and it will make the whole difference as to how great your portraits will look.

Don’t worry. I’m not going to try to “sell you” on working with me. I’m already very busy, and I don’t need to pressure anyone to work with me as a photographer. I’ll just talk to you about your portraits, and help you discover what your photographs could be like. If you decide to have me create your portraits - great. If not, no problem.

# 3 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception:
“Family Portraits Have To Be Created In A Professional Studio -

And They Have To Look Boring.”

If you’re like most people, when you think of a PROFESSIONAL family portrait, you think of all of you gathered in front of a “painted background” in a photography studio, posed unnaturally, and all saying “cheese” as the photographer snaps the picture. Now, is that something any family will cherish for a lifetime? I think not. Yes, it may capture the whole family together, but it will never capture your family relationships - your family’s love.

Picture instead: All of you gathered in your favorite room in your home. Or outside on the new deck you just had built. Or in your backyard by the pine trees that give your yard so much character. All of you are dressed in clothes the photographer helped you choose - clothing that conveys your individual personalities, but still looks great together. Well, that’s what makes all the difference, and that’s what I will do for you.

Obviously, I’m totally confident that the portraits I create of you and your family will be well beyond anything you imagine. I believe completely that these photographs will become your most prized possessions - that, if your house were on fire, you would grab them on the way out of your burning home. This is not arrogance. I can’t stand arrogance. No, this is a complete belief in my abilities to capture natural, real emotions and family relationships on film unlike anyone else. That’s what I’ve devoted my life to, and that’s why I can’t wait to photograph your family for you.

So, To Restate, Here’s My Fantastic DOUBLE GUARANTEE:
If you are not THRILLED with your photographs - if you are dissatisfied for ANY reason at all, I will do two things for you:

1st - At NO CHARGE, I will photograph your family again, and make sure that anything that wasn’t perfect is fixed, without you paying another cent.

2nd - If I am absolutely unable to thrill you - if I’m unable to create a photograph that you feel you will cherish forever, I will refund EVERY PENNY you invested in them.


If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer offers this strong of a guarantee. If they are good, they should back up their work by taking all the risk off of you.

# 2 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception:
“All Family Portraits Are Created Equal.”.

INCORRECT. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you’re at all like most people, you’ve probably had this question going through your mind: “How do I choose the right photographer?” In fact, you may even have thought of someone in your family - an uncle, a grandparent, even a friend - who is a bit of an amateur photographer. Why not just have that person create the photograph of your family?


Question: “Just Suppose Someone Were To Create The Perfect Family Portrait - One Where You And Your Loved Ones Looked Better Than Ever, Happier Than Ever - A Portrait That Meant The World To You What Would That Be Worth?”


No price tag can be put on your family’s memories. They are and always will be priceless. So, why would you ever want to gamble with those memories? It’s just a question of whether you believe a portrait of your family could really mean that much to you.


If you were sick, and had to go to a doctor, would you want the “cheapest” doctor, or the best one? Well, there’s really no question. It’s the same thing with your family’s memories. You can certainly find a cheaper photographer in town. But there are other things to consider than just price...

And This is SO Important: All Of You Feel Totally
Comfortable In Front Of The Camera!

Do you know ANYONE who feels totally comfortable in front of a camera? I’ll bet you don’t. I don’t. Nearly everyone I’ve ever met tells me the same thing: “I never look natural in pictures.” The last thing you want is a photograph where you or your family members have that fake “posed” look on your face.


That’s why it’s so important that you feel very natural and comfortable with your photographer. Just think of how great your family would look if your best friend was creating the photograph. They would all look so happy and natural! I take pride in developing very close relationships with all my clients, and their entire family.


Plus, I understand the “psychology” of photography. Learning the technical aspects, what lenses to use, what lighting looks best, how clothing adds and subtracts weight in a portrait, all of those things were only the tip of the iceberg. Without being able to make each one of your family members look and feel comfortable (and natural) in a portrait, all those technical things would amount to nothing.

You’ll NEVER hear me utter the words “say cheese.”

That’s a surefire way of getting expressions that look totally fake and unnatural. No a great photographer knows that, in order to get a great expression from a subject, you need to get to know that subject a bit - to know what will make them smile naturally. That’s what I do, and I love it! I will get to know your whole family so well, and they will feel so comfortable with me, that their expressions will be perfect every time.


# 5 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception:
“There’s No Rush To Have A Family Portrait

Created Right Now.”

You know how things are. If you don’t pick up the phone right now, and at least call me to chat about your family portrait, you will probably get swamped with other things, and forget all about it. Then, before you know it, a year - two years - five years have gone by. How different will your family be then?


You see, time is ticking.... and it’s never going to stop. .

First, Your Child Takes His or Her First Step. Next, Learns To Ride A Bike. Later, Gets A Driver’s License. Graduates From High School. Gets Married. Starts A Family Of His or Her Own.!

These are precious times, and although things will change, this moment never has to slip from your fingers.


Don’t put this off. You know how life is. We put things off, and before we know it, everything has changed. If your life is half as crazy as mine is, year after year you find yourself frustrated at the things you wanted to do, and never got done. A family portrait is something you deserve.

We Can Stop The Clock!
Memories Are The Most Valuable Thing We Own.

"Our family's photo session with Stephen was a great experience!  His easygoing manner and humor put us and our three teenagers at ease during the session.  Also, Stephen has an artist's eye for light and location and he picked areas around our home which created great backgrounds.  We have several beautiful photographs of our family thanks to Stephen."

The Photographer You Choose Should Care About YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR MEMORIES, Not Just About “Making A Buck” Off You.

I pride myself on becoming a family friend of every family I photograph. I’ve even had some clients invite me to their houses for birthday parties and such. You see, I didn’t get into photography to get rich. Believe me, there are better (and easier) ways to make a fast buck. I actually went to college to become an engineer. I could be making a WHOLE lot of money if I’d stayed in that line of work.


But I CHOSE to become a professional family photographer. Why did I make that career choice? Because I finally realized that all the money in the world meant nothing to me if I didn’t feel like I was making a difference.

I Realized That Memories Were Priceless - That There Was No More Noble Or Wonderful Profession Than To Become A “Memory Giver.”

I didn’t become a photographer because I liked to take pictures. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the “art” of photography, but that’s NOT the reason I first picked up a camera. As a child, my mother and father didn’t have many photographs taken. My entire time growing up, I can’t remember a single photograph being taken of of us together.

“Stephen is a most delightful and personable person, making our time spent a most  comfortable one.  Having the session in our home was relaxing and inviting.  Stephen is very professional, aiming to please his clients in what their preferences are. Quality of photographs are impeccable; they are true to life and heirloom quality.  Being with Stephen was a most wonderful and enjoyable time for me and my family. From my son and daughter-in-law to the grandchildren, we will treasure the memorable moments spent with Stephen Diver . It is truly an honor for me and my family to know Stephen and  we look forward to future  sessions.”

“Stephen came to our home and created such wonderful portraits of our family. His attention to detail and choice of location for our portrait allowed us to take advantage of the beautiful light on our veranda. We are so pleased to be able to include our home surroundings in our portrait, while having such a wonderful time!”

Mark and Laura Chandler

# 4 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception:

There are a number of things to think about, and I will walk you through all of them personally.
