The Experience

  It's important for all of us to be part of something larger than ourselves.  We all want to belong, to feel valued and loved.  Every family is unique and that's what makes them beautiful.  Some families are large, some small, many families include children, for others their pets are their children.  No matter your definition, your family is special. Our team of artisans work together to bring you something beautiful to enjoy everyday.

Psychologist and child development experts have attested to the importance of displaying family portraits in the home and the positive effect it has on a child's healthy self-esteem.  This is true for adults as well.  Portraits are a constant reminder for all of us, even on the hardest days, of the bond we share and the love of family.

  • through the design consultation we'll begin planning your custom portrait session around your family's style and personality.  we'll discuss your family dynamics and work together to determine the best setting and wardrobe, as well as explore options for displaying your art and where you envision seeing your pieces in your home.

 

  • the day of your session is fun and exciting!  you'll get to dress up in your new outfit to look and feel your best.  with artistic lighting and composition we will create the images to be transformed into your family art.  expect your portrait session to run about an hour.  while we certainly take the time needed to create the images during your session there is also no need to drag it out past the point of enjoyment either.  that said, every family, every child, every pet, every session is unique and the length of your custom portrait session will be adjusted accordingly.

 

  • shortly after your portrait session we will set up your view and order visit to the studio.  this is where we're able to view images in actual, real life sizes with framing samples to design your art pieces and collections and place your order.  it is recommended that all decision makers be present.

A Word On Baby Safety

*Newborns are photographed in studio within the first 12 days due to developmental stages. 

Your Child's safety is the number one priority.  When it comes to baby safety there is no wiggle room for error.  Period.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Child Development and have over 17 years of experience working with infants and very young children.  I will not take risks with your baby’s safety.

It is important to always have a contact spotter during capture.  Newborns should NEVER EVER be posed to balance their head in their hands.  This can cause series injury as their head is the heaviest part of their little body and their neck and wrists cannot support the weight.  There are specific techniques used to safely create newborn images using Industry Standard Best Practices.
