Step by Step - What to Expect
  1. Discovery Consultation: Before your session, we’ll schedule a pre-session consultation to understand your unique style, personality, and interests. This discussion allows us to recommend suitable, backgrounds and options like props for your portraits. We will assist you in planning where to display your portraits and who you might want to gift them to. You can choose to have this consultation over the phone or in person.
  2. Portrait Session: The moment you’ve been eagerly anticipating has arrived! You’ll have an amazing custom portrait session, tailored to your preferences. This is where the fun happens! Our sessions are never rushed, and while they typically last around an hour, the duration may vary depending on the number of individuals and their ages. The exact length of the session will be discussed during the consultation.
  3. Custom Slideshow: Ordering Appointment: After your session, we’ll invite you back to our studio for a personalized ordering session. Sit back and relax in our comfortable gallery room as we present your portraits to you in a beautifully crafted slideshow. We will also prepare several artistically enhanced images for your consideration. During this appointment, we’ll assist you in selecting the perfect portraits, frames, albums, and gift prints for you and your family. It’s the time when you’ll make your portrait purchase.
  4. Order Pickup: This is the culmination of our collaborative effort! Depending on your order, your portraits will be ready for pickup within 4 to 6 weeks from your Ordering Session. We take pride in ensuring that the final product meets your expectations and is a true reflection of your vision.

Displaying your Wall Art

Not just photos but works of art your family will enjoy for years to come.

Displaying your family photographs, baby photos or pet photos to show them off is a very personal choice. The décor of the house can greatly affect the choice of product used to display your family portraits.

We can offer you an exclusive range of Gallery Wall Frames and canvas/block and acrylic frames. An increasing number of our clients choose to purchase one of our beautiful photo albums, these products are a cost effective way to purchase a greater number of images from your session without breaking the bank.

All our wall products are printed on the highest quality archival paper, and framed in superb hand made frames or blocks.

How to position your wall art

To help with positioning your photos correctly, measure the available space and aim to cover approximately 75% of the available wall – if the image is too small in the given space it will look very ‘lost’ and if it’s too big it will be very overbearing. We are happy to advise you if you bring along your measurements to the viewing.

Think about the actual height of the pictures. Most people hang their photo frames too high! Imagine standing in front of your picture frame and looking at the image at eye level to determine the correct size and height of your chosen photos.
