We begin with the end in mind. Before we shoot any images, we need a plan for how they will be displayed in your home. Creating a plan and shooting for that plan results in a session that makes you happy. Your Phot session takes place in several different meetings with us. The Pre-Session Consultation, the Shoot, the Preview & Ordering Appointment and Delivery.
“So, How Do You Want To Display Your Images?”
Knowing the answer helps us create a plan for your session, shoot it in the best possible way to reach our end-goal, and show you images that thrill you to no end. So let us show you how the Portrait Process works.
Portrait Sessions start at $45*

YOUR LONG-TERM PLAN
First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it? From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, the pre-consultation answers all your questions and helps us get to know your family. We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final plan for your images will be. Your session is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone.
Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.
Sessions at the studio or on location?
Sessions can be somewhat stressful for families. From wondering if the kids will behave,or to stress over what to wear ,it may have been challenging for you in the past. Sessions with us are anything but stressful. Fun-filled, happy and relaxed, We don’t care about crazy kids! As a matter a fact, the crazier, the better for their real personality (the one you love most) will come out.
Shoots take place in the studio where we work with controlled studio lighting and many of our simple props and set designs. The studio offers a relaxed environment where we create a look that is amazing no matter what the weather. When the weather is warmer, let’s take it outside! So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or we can recommend a spot for you. We focus the portrait experience around just that, an amazing experience. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family’s relationship and the creation of unique art for their home.
Time to View and Order your Images
This is where the fun finishes! The Viewing & Ordering Appointment is the time when you get to see all the hard work you put into your session. Your images are projected onto our 32inch TV and we take the time to design the right art piece for your home. This is the time when you will finalize your portrait order, so be sure to pick a time where both mom and dad can be there. We’ll help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your home. We’ll show you actual size and pair images together for a stunning album or wall gallery. With our wall art program we can use an image from your home to create a wall display that you will see unfold right before your eyes during. Specializing in wall series and heirloom albums, some of the products we offer are one-of-a-kind. All of them are sure to get you excited about what lies ahead!
About 3-4 weeks later, your art piece will be ready for delivery. Yes we said Delivery! We’ll call or email you to let you know it’s here and make arrangements for when we can deliver your art piece to your and your home. Once those portraits are hanging, you can sit back and enjoy them. For these are your precious kids —the ones who are growing too fast and who you will cherish to the end of your days.
The Plan Ahead
And that’s not the end! Our families often come to us year after year. As your children grow and change, it will be time to update your portraits. So right from the start we plan, knowing that more may come. And we design around that! The next time you work with us, we’ll create art that coordinates with sessions past, so you can build on to what we’ve already created for you in a way that works and delights you year after year.
