HERE’S THE SCOOP! Everyone gets their senior yearbook portraits done at school. But is that really who you are? We will create images that reflect you and your personality at this important time in your life!
TIME: I don’t place strict limits, but the average session takes 2 hours. We will stop for breaks and selfies as needed. We will move to different locations (within a 5-mile radius). And of course, you can bring along a friend.
THE BIG QUESTION . . . WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Wear what makes you feel good and most like yourself! Avoid busy patterns, logos, and bright white (creamy white is okay). Get creative! Bring hats, cool shoes, jackets, jewelry, scarves—you name it! If you’re unsure about something, bring it anyway. Bring meaningful props. What is your style? What are your interests? We work with uniforms, sports equipment, musical instruments, and even prom dresses. We want your pictures to be an expression of who you are.
Your pre-portrait planning session, the actual session time, the sales session appointment and if needed an in home design meeting.
Session Fee: $295
~ You won’t be restricted by limited packages.
~We have a wide variety of finishes for wall portraits.
Classic Paper, Canvas Galley Wraps, Wood Gallery Blocks and a full line of Holiday Cards.
I Believe in Photographs
I believe in photography – but more than that I believe in photographs. Printed photographs are tangible. We can hold on to them, pass them around, frame them and hang them on a wall. Portraits albums can be treasured and looked through by children for years to come. I am without a doubt passionate about creating photographs – real pictures – printed on professional papers. I want your children, their children, my children and future grandchildren looking at and holding onto tangible photographs.
I believe the best way to provide expectational service to all of my clients is to present them with beautiful professionally finished work.
Handing them a flash drive or a DVD and sending them on their way is not the best representation of my work or the value I place on photographs.
I believe in printing my work professionally by professional labs. The photographs I create are not only precious to my clients but they are precious to me too. It is my work, a lifetime of work that deserves to be printed. Can you imagine a floppy disk, a DVD or a flash drive sitting in a frame representing your family portraits? We can’t touch a file and the truth is we don’t know the longevity of a file or if we will even be able to find it someday. A digital file is a bit of a mystery – if it’s lost, where did it go? If a drive is damaged what happens to the files? How many people truly back up all their images or ever print their digital files? When was the last time you printed your own pictures? How many pictures do you have on your computer that are still not printed?
I believe not all labs are created equally. Quality printing is not something the corner drug store offers. Professional labs have strict quality control and print my work to my standards. As an artist I am a perfectionist when it comes to cropping, color, density, and print quality and chose to maintain control over these variables.
I understand that in this age of digital technology you want to share images through social media and view them on portable devices. For this reason, I offer web-friendly and device optimized images. The images are not formatted for printing and contain a signature watermark.
Device Friendly Digital Images
High resolution digital files are not offered for reproduction. We do offer social media and personal device friendly images. These are available to you once your order is complete and picked up. Once an image is purchased for print the shareable file is available to you. The purchase of our signature Image Box or Album will include all the matching shareable files. These images are low resolution and watermarked with our logo.
BOOKING POLICY: To book a date, you need to submit a deposit (the full session fee). If you schedule your session at least 2 weeks prior to the date, you may mail a check, but will need to provide a credit card if you want to “hold” the date. If you book a date less in advance, you will need to pay with a credit card on the session date.
GIFT CERTIFICATE: Gift cards are available, and can be used for the session fee or package. Our gift cards come beautifully packaged with all necessary information.
CANCELLATION POLICY: All emergency appointment cancellations may be rescheduled. The client has up to 2 weeks to reschedule before losing the deposit. If the second appointment is also cancelled (or if a client schedules an appointment, pays the fee, but does not reschedule), the deposit is lost.
