The Portrait Process
BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND
Working with us step by step
The Pre-consultation, Planning The Shoot, The Reveal, Order Appointment & Delivery
First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it?
From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, the pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know you or your family.
We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final outcome will be.
Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone. Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your dreams and we’ll blend in our creativity to make it happen.

his objection is such a common misconception, we hear it like a common chorus or a bad refrain from a sad song. Especially for women who often recoil in horror at bad ‘smart phone’ and other camera lens distortion by everyday users. It’s ok, most users don’t understand that the wrong lens type, the wrong camera angles, the wrong posing and wrong lighting for every body shape under the sun can cause falsely added weight, odd facial and body distortions resulting in mis-captures and unflattering reflections of the beauty within each and every one of us.
Thats why being a highly trained professional photographer who is educated and experienced in understanding posing, direction, complex technical knowledge - understanding lighting, framing, lens choosing and editing excellence, takes years to master. It is through this mastery and knowledge that the misnomer, “I’m just not that photogenic,” happily flies immediately out of the window as a patently false misconception.
