The Process

Consultation/Design Appointment

Whether you are a new client or a long-time client, a design appointment is very important. This is where the planning and fun begins. We make an appointment for you to visit our studio to plan in advance all that is involved for your portrait. We believe in learning about you, your family including your tastes and styles, and your home decor. Clothing options will also be discussed at this point. You will view a beautiful presentation set to music through a large screen projection which will inspire further ideas for your portrait. At this time, we will choose a convenient day for your portrait and everything will be planned so your special day will run smoothly.

View & Choose

After your portrait session, a "View & Choose" appointment will be scheduled for you and your loved ones. This will take place during a a convenient time for you; approximately one week from your session. At this time, you will enjoy a slideshow of your images via large screen projection.  We do not supply paper proofs,  CD's, or internet display.

Retouching

The quality of our work is extremely important to us, therefore we take extra care in this department to make sure everyone looks their absolute best. In-house enhancement artists take care of stray hairs, fine "lines of wisdom", tan lines, whitening of teeth, and a little "nip/tuck" upon request.  (Included at no additional charge.)

 

Studio Session Fees start at $175*

Session fees or creation fees are payment for the time, talent, retouching and a personal view and choose appointments at our studio.

Outdoor Location Session Fees start at $250

This session is for outdoor locations such as the park, beach, field or your favorite place.
Beach portraits are done approximately one hour before sunset; as this is called the "sweet light" of the day.
