Boutique Portrait Experience
Every portrait created is made specifically with your family and your home in mind. Artwork is designed to reflect your family connections, personalities, and style to bring warmth to your home. Capturing your important life milestones and designing your traditional family portraits is my goal. We work together to plan your session based on the memories you want to capture and how you want those memories displayed in your home.
Computer hard drives fail and phones fall on the ground and break. Let's print your memories and display them in your home. Printed photos will last longer than ever-changing technology and you will be able to enjoy your portraits every single day.
Let me take you through the process. Read below to learn more about your boutique photography experience.
Step 1: Design Consultation
When you reach out to me as a potential client, we start the process by talking about your family and your goals for the portrait session, going over basic information about the boutique experience, and scheduling a complimentary Design Consultation so we can meet in person and start to dive deeper.
Great portrait sessions do not happen by accident. They are well thought out and planned.
During the Design Consultation, you tell me more about what you want to capture during the portrait session and how you want to display images of your beautiful family in your home. No worries if you don't know. We look at samples of my work and heirloom quality products so you can start to envision which products fit your taste and design preferences. You see and feel the quality of the pieces in person.
Step 2: Portrait Session
Newborn sessions are typically done in the convenience of your home. Read about the benefits of having a newborn session at home.
I bring everything we need, including props, wraps, blankets, etc. for the newborn portrait session. I also have access to a professional studio. For maternity, child, and family sessions, there are many beautiful outdoor locations in greater Cincinnati areas.
Newborn sessions take about 3 hours to allow time for feeding, changing, and soothing. Maternity, child, and family sessions usually last about 1 hour.
My goal is to make the photo session comfortable and fun for your family. You will be guided through the photo session with coaching on how to pose and how to look your best in the photographs.
Step 3: Selecting Your Portraits and Art
The most exciting part of the boutique portrait experience is selecting your portraits and artwork to display in your home. This is an exciting and often emotional time when you view the images for the first time and select your artwork. Each heirloom quality product you will see was hand-selected for its beautiful aesthetic, for durability and longevity, and to be passed on to your children (and grandchildren).
You will see and touch each product in person during the design consultation and again during the viewing appointment. After you view the image gallery, together, together, we will select the products to best complement your home and fit your needs.
