What are they and where did this idea come from?
I can’t contain my excitement over these fine art portraits. First let me start with where this idea came from. My husband James had these portraits taken when he was a boy. From the very first time I visited his parents house in Greenville, NC I would always stare at these portraits and talk to his mom about how timeless and beautiful they were. James told me from day one I should do them, but I wasn’t ready then and I didn’t have kids that were the right age for the portraits.
And then this winter I was with one of my dear friends from college and she said “Becca you have to see these portraits I had done of my kids. They are my favorite.” And here they were again. These timeless heirloom black and white photos that will be treasures for a lifetime. And the next week yet another friend text me about taking these portraits of her little girl, and I knew it was time. Over the winter months I have spent time perfecting these studio portraits and am SO excited to offer them this year. I always get excited when I can offer a product that I genuinely love and treasure of my own children. Y’all these portraits are just that. Timeless. Classic. Heirloom Treasures. They capture their little faces perfectly and will always remind you of these fleeting childhood days.
These fine art portraits will take place in my studio in Greensboro, NC and are best suited for children ages 1-6 (as long as child can set up well on their own.) I would like to think that clients could have them done each year, and watch their little faces grow and change. A child is truly never too old (better late then never!) and this would make the perfect Mothers Day gift!
The studio session will last around 45 minutes and you will be right there the whole time to make your child smile, laugh, and feel comfortable. Toys or books that evoke smiles are encouraged. The session is laid back and I love working with kiddos to get the best smiles and faces possible.
What should your child wear to their portrait session? Dress you child in a light or white collared shirt without patterns. Simple smocked dresses on girls are perfect. Peter Pan collars are my favorite. I have two boy Peter Pan collar shirts (size 12 months and 3-4T) that you are welcome to use for the session. If you need any suggestions for clothing, just ask me and I can point you in the right direction.
This portrait package includes the 45 minutes studio session with white backdrop, 3 single pose prints (5X7 or 4X6) and a 3 to 5 pose custom composite 8×10 print of your favorite poses.
Additional Prints can be purchased. Sibling groups are welcome within the same 45 minutes session (extra time will be added based on number of siblings). Each additional sibling is $175 and will receive their own set of prints and composite print.
Within two weeks of your portrait session you will receive an online gallery of around 20 watermarked images (both in black and white and color) where you will choose your favorites for single prints and poses to be combined in the composite print of your choice. Once you’ve selected your favorite images, composite layout, and print sizes, then I’ll design and print your composite print and single print poses. All prints are fine art quality. This process takes 2 to 3 weeks depending on how quickly you make selections. Prints will be mailed to you and additional prints can be ordered via your online gallery. These prints make the perfect Mothers Day gift!
I’m truly excited about these sessions because I absolutely LOVE these portraits of my boys and I want every family to have these priceless portraits. They are treasures and I can guarantee that every child I get to capture I will work to create fine art portraits that you adore, just like I did for my own two boys.
