We pride ourselves on offering outstanding service and quality. We believe that personal service is the best way to serve you and so we work closely with our clients from your initial phone call through the selection of the appropriate frames to finish your portraits. We know that having a photography session can lead to many questions and anxiety (from what to wear, to your children's behavior, to the display of your portraits in your home). Our job is to make the experience fun and easy for you! We are experts, not only in photography, but also, portrait design, the selection process, how to best frame your portraits and placement in your home.

After you schedule your portrait session, Mara will meet with you at the Studio for your Design Appointment. She will discuss the personalities of your family members, the types of images that you prefer, expectations for the session, clothing, and display options for the images in your home.

The Portrait Session is scheduled at the optimum time and location for your children's ages and development. Although we have a beautiful Studio with both indoor and outdoor photography options, Mara can also come to your home or another location to help personalize the session. The session itself is very relaxed, with Mara directing all of the subjects. Mara works well with both children and adults alike, helping to elicit the most natural poses and expressions.

About a week after the portrait session, you will come back into the Studio to view the projected images from your session in a beautiful slideshow presentation and place your portrait order. We work closely with you, ensuring that you choose the best images and sizes for each image. Mara even makes her own suggestions based upon her favorites and what you have discussed in your design appointment. Because our portraits are handcrafted on the finest archival papers, your finished order will take between four and eight weeks to be delivered.

Once your portrait order is ready, we invite you back into the Studio in order to choose frames that will complement your images as well as your home decor. Megan is an expert in choosing frames and will hand-select mouldings for you, before you arrive. Once you have selected your frames, you need only take home your portraits and hang them on your walls!
