When was the last time you updated your family portrait? For some, it is an annual tradition, and bravo! For others, it has been way too long. Let's fix that! Looking for a family photographer who will make things as easy as possible so that your day is not stressful? I am here to help.
Let’s capture that incredible relationship that is unique to you and those crazy, beautiful people you call your tribe. Want to freeze your kids in time so you remember every goofy laugh and beautifully sublime expression? Let’s do it. We will photograph your whole gang, just the kids, the family pet, you name it! And - Mom, Dad, or Mom and Dad, before you protest...you guys are a part of this too. Exist in pictures. It's a gift to those that love you.
Where Do We Start?
Your portrait experience begins with the end in mind. You’ve decided to hire a professional photographer, but do you know what your goal is for these images? Are we trying to create an incredible wall portrait to display in pride of place? Do we want a fun grouping of prints to show off personalities? A creative wall collage? A gorgeous album to showcase an iconic session or update your coffee table? I will work with you to plan for this before we start so that we capture exactly what you are looking for in our session.
We will have a consultation to discuss how you want to display your portraits, as well as go over wardrobe choices and location options. Often times, this happens best in your home. Being in your home allows me to get a sense of your style, and help you plan where and how you would like to show off your portraits in your space. Professional portraits are an investment in art that features the people you love most. I will work with you step-by-step to make sure we craft amazing images and art that is best for you and your family.
Basic sessions typically last 1-2 hours, leaving plenty of time to capture everything we have planned in your consultation, as well as any fun inspiration that hits in the moment. My goal is for you to feel relaxed and ready, so that you can enjoy our time together and have fun!! I do not want this to be a stressful experience, and I will work with you every step of the way to make sure it is not. For your family session, your biggest job is to relax and let me direct the kids (be they two legged or four, young or old). We will make it fun and get everyone photographed as quickly as possible, without feeling rushed. I've got you!
After Your Session
After your session, we will get together in 1 to 2 weeks for the big reveal at my location. Please have the decision-makers with you, so we can make the most of our time together. I have gorgeous samples you can see and touch to help you make final choices about how we will showcase your images. Once your order is placed, your artwork will be ready within 3-4 weeks, depending on what kind of display are creating (wall portraits, albums, etc.).
Delivery & Installation
Once your artwork arrives, it will be checked carefully to make sure that everything is perfect. Many of my clients prefer to have their wall portraits delivered and installed in their home. This helps avoid those “are you sure it’s not a little bit crooked” conversations with your loved ones.
I’ll take care of all of that for you!
Now, all you have to do is enjoy the view!
Planning for the Future
Your portraits are lovingly displayed….but what about next year, or in five years? No worries! Your artwork will grow with you as we continue to tell your story. I will work with you to move portraits through your home as we add chapters over time, and even work your new images in with displays you may already have in place.
I strive to provide the very best for my clients, and want you to enjoy the experience from start to finish. From the initial consultation to the final delivery, my goal is to help you capture moments and create gorgeous art for your home featuring the subjects you love most! I look forward to working with you to create lasting memories your family will cherish for a lifetime!
