When Peter Simon photographs your family, he does so in a unique, casual and intimate way, reflective of the down-home, barefooted, cozy lifestyle that Martha's Vineyard evokes. 

Late in the day, when the sunlight is soft and golden, he escorts your group to a special Island location, and takes an unlimited amount of shots with a  digital camera. You receive a contact sheet of all the images and a CD-R with a resolution that allows you to email and make prints up to 5"x7".

Peter Simon combines the natural beauty of Martha's Vineyard - the seagrass, sand dunes, ocean landscapes, boats in the harbor, the lighthouses or gray shingled shacks - with the charm and spontaneity that your family reveals. Your session includes up to 4 group or individual set-ups. You decide which ones to copy and enlarge to keep forever, a timepiece of an era, that gets passed down from generation to generation.
