begin with the end in mind

Of course you want family portraits! Before we pick up the camera, we create a plan for where and how your portraits will live in your home. Do you want one large statement piece over the fireplace? Let's create it. Do you have a big empty hallway? Let's build a family gallery over several years. Are you about to move or live in a house with no wall space? Albums and portrait boxes are great ways to tell the story of your family. Every family is unique and your unique needs will be the guide during your design consultation.

DESIGN CONSULTATION

The planning stage is when we talk about goals. What final result are we going for and how will we plan it? We talk about your family and their unique personalities. We determine where you portraits will live in your home. We talk about the session style and clothing options.

You will leave knowing:

  • What everyone should be wearing
  • The best areas of your home for your portraits
  • A complete understanding of your investment

This is the time to get all your questions answered. Your session is carefully planned and fully designed. Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell me about your family, your home, your vision and I'll add creativity to make it happen.

The experience is no-stress fun. We might start with the full family and then split up into the various groupings we discussed in the Design Consultation. Maybe you want an album this year - if so, we capture all the funny in-between spontaneous moments.

If this is a newborn session, the experience is calm and relaxing. You feed baby when you arrive and we begin when baby is settled. We planned the colors and props in the Design Consultation, so I just run through my poses with baby, then start adding mom and dad, if that is your choice. We are flexible, because that's how life works best.

This is the fun part!

Finally you see the fruits of our labor! You view all your portraits in a slideshow set to music and see a mock-up of your wall art in photos of your walls.

 

We choose your favorites for the artwork we already designed. Everything you select will be professionally made and sure to get you excited.

DELIVERY & INSTALLATION

As soon as your artwork arrives, we inspect the pieces to make sure everything meets the highest standards. Then we make arrangements for delivery. If you'd like, we'll install your pieces for you too!

 

Every time you see your portraits, you will remember the moment. When those kids drive you crazy, you'll remember the love. When they are sullen, angsty teens, you'll remember the joy of little. When they have kids of their own, you'll get to tell your grandchildren about when their mom or dad was little. And maybe your kids will do that same with their kids.

Love begets love. Put love on your walls!

LONG-TERM PLANNING

As your family grows and changes, you'll want to update your portraits or add more portraits to your wall. We'll create art that coordinates with past sessions. Now is the time to plan. There are certain milestones you won't want to miss. I really want to watch your children grow up!
