More about the above:
A pre-session design consult at our studio with Kristi is so important in helping Kristi to create and capture the vision for your portrait session. Typically lasting 30 minutes, Kristi values this time getting to know you, your spouse and little ones.
Portrait sessions are typically around an hour long and can be held on location outside or at our downtown studio. Newborn sessions are 2-3 hours and held at our studio. We provide the props for newborn and baby sessions. We can provide dresses and flower crowns for maternity sessions. We provide the cake, balloons and props for 1st birthday Smash & Splash sessions. For family sessions, we will send you a Getting Ready Guide to help you with what to wear and think about for your portrait session.
Ordering appointments The Ordering Appointment is where we’ll be viewing and selecting your favorite portraits around 5-7 days after your portrait session (within a day for out of town clients)and to place your order. We have a process and software that helps guide our clients through every step so you can realize your portrait vision.
A note from Kristi:
I Believe in Photographs
I believe in photography - in printed photographs that are tangible. When I create your albums and meticulously retouch your wall art portraits, I am imagining the future of my work in your home. Whenever you get out your album and sit down with your kids, I can hear you say, "Look how small you were!" They look at the photos and realize the love you have had for them from the first moments, when they were too small to even be aware.
As you pass by your portraits on your walls, bustling around with the craziness of life, it is a staple, a constant reminder that you love your family. I want your children, their children and future grandchildren looking at and holding onto tangible photographs. My fear is that this technology generation will not have or value a beautifully printed photograph.
I believe the best way to provide exceptional service to all of my clients is to present them with beautiful professionally finished work. Handing them a flash drive and sending them on their way is not the best representation of my work or the value I place on photographs.
I believe in printing my work professionally by professional labs. I believe in quality prints that will outlive us and our children. Can you imagine a floppy disk, a DVD or a flash drive sitting in a frame representing your family portraits? Only providing a digital file is not why I create beautiful art.
I believe not all labs are created equally. Quality printing is not something the corner drug store offers. Professional labs have strict quality control and print my work to my standards.
Some digital files are available as a thank you for printing with us. They are full resolution files that come with a print release. Our clients choose to get their quality prints, wall portraits and albums from us and use the digital files to make small prints for their families.
