Our Process Simplified
Pre-Consultation / Design
You cherish your art
A Pre-Session Consultation
We first need to decide what you want to do with your images. Not just post them on social media, but how do you want to view them in 10 years. How do you imaging see them will make you feel and what do you want to remember? Understanding these goals will help us design your session. We also need to get to know you, your family, your style so that we create the most personal art for YOU. Don't worry, we guide you every step of the way. At the planning meeting we will discuss your session, decide on a location, plan your wardrobe and design your custom art work. The planning meetings can take place at your home or we can meet-up at a local coffee shop.
The Portrait Session
Based on the desired style of art you are looking for, your session will be held at a beautiful outdoor location, in your home or in a studio environment and will usually last about an hour. We will guide you through every step of the way and none of it will feel like poses or forced smiles we will capture authentic connection, candid moments and the essence of who you are.
The Viewing Appointment
This is where you fall in love with your images! About two weeks after your portrait session we will meet and you will see the finished images for the first time. We will help you sort through your images and make final decisions on what will fit best with your home. We will pair images for albums or stunning wall galleries. At the end of the viewing appointment you will choose your favorites and place your order of custom art work.
Delivery & Installation
About three to four weeks after the ordering appointment your order will arrive and we will personally deliver it to your home. If you need help with installation we can even help with hanging and displaying your new art.
You Cherish Your Art
Your experience is not over after delivery and installation. After you portraits or hung or your albums displayed is when you fall in love with your images EVERY DAY. And that's not the end, our clients return as children continue to grown, engagements become weddings, and weddings lead to new families. Every stage of life, even every year of life deserves quality heirloom portraits to remember, and we work with your prior sessions to create art that coordinates from the past so you can build a collection you love year after year.
