Step 1- Setup Appointment time and Date
Call us 305.984.8028 to set up your private 1 hour portrait session.
(Due to significant demand for our unique portraits, you are encouraged to book your sitting at least 3-4 weeks in advance.)
At this time we will discuss backgrounds, theme, props, and attire.
We encourage you to be involved in this creative process to ensure that your portrait will be unique to you and your family.
Relax and enjoy your session. Sessions are never rushed and will generally take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
This will allow plenty of time for the little ones to have breaks as needed.
Approximately one to two weeks after the session you will return to the studio for your private viewing session. Your images will be projected on a 60″ screen for you to choose and place your order. At this time we will go through the different package options for your portraits. Anyone who will be significant in the purchasing decisions should be present at this session as you will be placing your order during this appointment. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and personal checks for payment. A 50% deposit will be collected at this time.
Although many studios take over 8 weeks to deliver prints, we pride ourselves in usually having your prints ready within 4-6 weeks. Framing, composites and any other special requests may delay the completion of your order. ‘Prints 11×14 and larger will be dry mounted onto fiber based board and will be ready to frame. We also offer a unique line of custom framing options.
We understand that the trend now for many photographers is to offer a “shoot and burn” session. This is when a photographer charges a fee to photograph your session and then turns around puts it in his/her computer and spits out a cd or flash drive with all your images. In theory that sounds like a great service for the client and a quick and easy way for photographers to make money. Everyone wins right? Well it really depends on how you look at it. Our philosophy is a little different and we understand that we are not the photographer for everyone; and that’s cool.
You see, we believe we are in the business of creating heirloom art work. We feel the print is the final and most important part of the photograph. If we cannot control the quality of this part of the process, it kind of defeats the purpose of what we do. We want to make sure we present you with a memory that you would be proud to share with generations to come. We also understand different tastes for displaying art work. Some prefer to frame a large portrait to display in the entrance to the home while another may prefer a custom designed coffee table book for the living room cocktail table. However you choose to display your memory we feel it’s important for future generations. We understand the social media culture we live in and that everyone wants to show off their photos on social media so we include a social media file with every print for you to share as much as you like.
Events and for Business
We do offer high resolution files for events and for business use. Please contact our studio for a custom quote for your event.
Like with all products and services, we understand that price is an important consideration when choosing a photography studio. However, please keep in mind that your portraits are very important to us, and we take great pride in the product we create for you. The decision of who you hire should never be placed solely on who has the cheapest price. Instead, you should consider all the factors that distinguish a photographer such as creativity, quality of goods, and service. These factors should always be evaluated when choosing your family photographer.
