Portraits and Memories to treasure for a lifetime
Too often life is so busy that we hardly take time to record the moments and memories along the way. Sure, with today’s technology we snap a lot of photos with our cell phones but it’s not too often that we invest time into having a wall portrait made for the home. Family photo sessions are an excellent way to capture the growth of children and create wonderful pieces of artwork to display around the home and share with other family members.
Most of the family sessions are done outdoors in a relaxed and carefree manner. Children are more likely to act natural while being outside rather than in a strange studio that they’re not familiar with. However, some families prefer the formal look of a studio backdrop and I have several to choose from that are perfect for the smaller family. Whether inside or outside, I prefer to create my own lighting scenarios and routinely use studio flash outdoors. While some families prefer to wear matching outfits, I’ve found that coordinating colors and patterns blend beautifully within the background and make the portraits more unique, rather than all white or all black shirts. Each family is different and some thought should be given as to what everyone will be wearing in the photos.
The dining room is “the” family place to be! What better time to celebrate your family unity than when a meal and stories are being shared around the table! This grouping above consists of seven gallery wrap canvassas. The center is a striking 30×40 inch. The smaller ones on each side at the bottom are all 8×12 inch and the two outside top ones are each 11×17. This really makes a statement for a large family gathering!
Framed Prints and Gallery Wraps: The walls of your home are begging to have framed family photographs! These are the ones you want to show off to friends and other family members that come over for a visit. To help you in this task, I can totally show you what your own family photographs will look when put on YOUR walls at home. Yes, you can email me a photograph of the wall that needs the attention and I can load it in my software and display your family photographs on the screen during your viewing and ordering session! How much easier does it get?
Even better, I have a framing company that offers just about every possible color and framing combination you can think of! The Wild Sorbet Frame Company truly has more frame choices than you can even imagine. There is something for EVERYONE!

Each image disk collection comes in a plastic case with a color printed image on the front and smaller thumbnail images of those you’ve chosen on the back. The disk itself is also customized for you! A signed pdf print release is included on the disk so that you can have your images printed legally. There is also a simplified release printed on the inside of the disk cover, as well as around the perimeter of the actual disk.
Custom Designed Cards: Along with the portrait session, I can also create custom greeting cards using the family photos, which are great for holiday cards or birthday party invitations. I am very comfortable with computer design and look forward to creating the special items that you will treasure for years to come. And these days, cards don’t have to be regular rectangles! They can come in all sorts of shapes, some folded, some flat and even some posed as ornaments with a pre-punched hole!
Family Albums: Of course, if you’re looking for the ultimate in preserving your family photos, I also offer custom-designed printed albums. These are the same quality as my wedding albums so you can check out the wedding page for more information on these awesome albums!
