Full service portraits are more than images on a disc. They are your legacy, your memories preserved for years to come, and passed down to your children. From ensuring our clients are fully equipped for a gorgeous session to providing our clients with high quality heirlooms to highlight their images, Heritage portrait studio specializes in each step of the portrait process.
Studio Tour: Before you book, I welcome you to explore the portrait studio. You’ll get a chance to meet me, discover the studio props, gowns, and wardrobe, and learn about my client led portrait process and investment options. Gush over the Heritage collections and products and start envisioning your session and heirlooms! Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to determine if my studio is a good fit for your portrait needs and, if so, get your portraits on the books with your retainer.
In Home Wall and Wardrobe Consultation: After you’re on the books, this unique step of my process allows me to better serve your portrait needs. I come to your home and we dive into wardrobe options. We are able to pull items directly from your closet and plan a wardrobe based off of items you already own. Or if there are specific wardrobe items you want to locate for your session, we can discuss those and where to find them (Some wardrobe is available in studio). At this consult I also take images of any walls you are thinking of decorating with your images. Whether this is a nursery, your family room, or a stair case, this allows me to develop wall art options for you based off your specific needs and let’s you customize your session to you and your family. This step of the process is also a great way to utilize my top-of-the-line software which allows you to visualize your wall decor set up before investing.
Portrait Session: All of our planning, including answers from a questionnaire located in your client portal (set up upon booking), help guide us to this part of my process. If applicable, your session will start with hair and makeup with a professional stylist. We spend as much time needed to capture the setups we have planned. Session times vary. (Most sessions take 1-2 hours, newborn sessions take 2-4).
Reveal and Heirloom Ordering Appointment: Within a week of your session we schedule perhaps the most exciting step of your portrait process. At your reveal you are presented with a slideshow of lightly edited images. I help guide you through image selections, determining which images mean the most to you. At this appointment, you are also able to make investment decisions on heirlooms for your family.
Processing & Delivery: After your image and heirloom orders are placed, some “behind the scenes” magic happens! Professional editing is applied to each purchased image. Any heirlooms are designed and, if applicable, sent for approval, then ordered or created (some heirlooms are created locally by my design team). Once your order arrives at the studio, we inspect it for perfection and schedule a time for pick up or delivery (wall installation options available).
