Will you help with wardrobe selection?
Yes, your Style & Planning Consultation can happen in the studio or at your home. In either location, we will discuss where you plan to display your finished artwork and how the wardrobe selection will complement your decor. At a home consultation, we are happy to help you look through the family closets for pieces that will photograph well and look good together. We are also happy to continue the conversation from either location by reviewing texted or emailed pictures of clothing you are considering from the closet or a shopping trip to ensure it will your goals for your portrait session.
Do I have to choose a package before I see the pictures?
No, our process is different from many other photographers. At your Style & Planning Consultation, we will ask about your needs for your portraiture and how and where you plan to display your finished artwork. We need this information to properly photograph your family - a black and white close up square portrait of your child's face for the playroom is created with different lighting, lens choices, and backgrounds than an outdoor fall family portrait that will hang over your living room sofa (horizontally) or above your mantel (vertically). The consultation allows us to all get on the same page and you will leave with a full quote for all pieces discussed, however, you will have the opportunity to see the images and purchase only the pieces you love after your session.
Do you go on location?
Yes! We are lucky to be located 500 feet from Hot Springs National Park which has beautiful scenery, however, the rest of the city (and state!) has some amazing scenery, too. Whether you want to remember how beautiful your vacation spot was, honor the memories you've created in your home, or just be photographed in your special place, we are happy to make that happen for you.
