Your Portrait Process
This experience is all about you! The first thing we want to do is get to know you so we can truly capture the essence of who you are, as an individual or as a family. We believe every family, and each individual within that family is unique. Therefore, we work hard to uncover each personality and relationship within the family. We work hard to learn what connects your to each other.
+ In-Studio Conference
You will be invited to the studio where we can get to know each other. This will give you the opportunity to express your personality, preferences, concerns and those special qualities that make you and your loved ones unique. Together, we'll plan your portrait session and finalize clothing choices. You are welcome to bring magazine pictures or Pinterest mood boards as the starting point for our planning.
It is the perfect atmosphere for envisioning how to make your dream a reality. There is time to browse through the studio at your own pace and consider the possibilities for your portraits. Together we will develop an artistic direction based on what kind of portraits you prefer, what locations or settings might help tell your story, and the walls where your completed portraits will hang in your home. We'll discuss proper clothing choices, locations, timing, unique challenges and any concerns you might have related to the portraits or the experience.
✦ Location Preview (for on-locations portrait sessions, only)
After the in-studio conference, Rebecca will visit your chosen session location and make initial decisions as to where and how the portraits will be created.
✦ Your Portrait Session
Regardless if your portrait occurs in the studio or on location, your session will be a relaxing and enjoyable time. Rebecca schedules only one portrait session per day so your portrait session will not be rushed. You will have the full attentions of Rebecca and her staff.
✦ CHOOSING YOUR PORTRAITS AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT
The big reveal! This is the exciting part…this is what all the hard work and preparation has been leading up to! Your portraits will be revealed to you like a movie. (There may even be popcorn!) Together, we will design timeless Art pieces to be displayed throughout your home. Those portraits will warm your heart and remind you how fantastic your family is. And all this heart warming love and appreciation will happen on a daily basis!
Within a few short weeks you and your loved ones will enjoy the custom artwork each day and be reminded of your unique story and the love you have for one another.
✦ THE UNVEILING PARTY
You will be notified when your completed portraits arrive and are ready for you to take home. But wait! This is a big moment so you are welcome to bring guests and we'll have a celebration. You deserve to share this exciting moment with all your friends!
This lovely lady volunteered herself and her horse as models for an exhibition about women and horses. The exhibition explored the bonds between a woman and her horse. Together, the three of us created “The Muse”.
She is a certified equine therapist - which means she helps people who are grieving through interactions with horses. On this day, she was seeing the folio box filled with portraits she had selected.
