During the pre-consult, I want to learn a little more about you and your family and what type of session you are interested in? What is it about your children that you want to remember 20 years from now and how do you want to remember it?...in an album that can be handed down from generation to generation or in a wall portrait that will make you smile every single day?
I will briefly explain my process, and how I work as an artist to create artwork for your home. I will share with you different artwork options which allows you to customize your own portrait package, as well as starting prices.
It is important to me as an artist that you have a beautiful album on your coffee table or art piece hanging on your wall to look back on in 5, 10, or 20 years to reminisce about childhood memories and how much they have grown.
We begin with the end in mind. Let's discuss what your vision is.
Next, we create a plan including what to wear, color design, how images will be displayed, and session locations. We will also address any questions you may have. Consults can take place in-person or on the phone.
Our studio, located in West Chester, PA, has everything you need for your newborn session, including props and set designs. You are more than welcome to bring any newborn keepsakes or special items you would like to use during the session. You will receive a Newborn Guide to help prepare you for your session, as well as help answer any questions you may have.
I know getting ready for a session can be stressful, so I have made a Style Guide to help take some of the stress away. On-location family sessions will receive the Style Guide to help with choosing a time and place, selecting the right location, style tips and outfit suggestion, as well as ideas for prepping your little ones!
Begin with the end in Mind!
Outdoor sessions take advantage of the incredible, natural beauty of the Philadelphia area. My goal is to make this as fun and stress-free as it possibly can be for you and your family! Having been an elementary teacher for 12 years, Jamie has experience working with kids of all ages and personalities. Expect to have fun, be silly, giggle and just be yourselves, and let your children’s real personalities shine. We may dance, jump, scream, tell secrets and jokes – the goal is to capture your families genuine personality.
During a newborn session, whether you choose our studio or your home, I want you to sit back and relax. We have everything you need. Newborns generally respond to your energy and therefore, the more relaxed and comfortable you are, the chances of a successful newborn session we can expect.
Let's tell your story!
One to two weeks after your session, we invite you into the studio for your viewing and ordering appointment. Your images will be viewed in a beautiful slideshow set to music, on a large wall monitor.
At that time, you will work with Jamie to choose the perfect portrait(s) for the right art piece for your home.
You will be able to touch and feel the products as well as see realistic mockups of what the images will look like on the walls of your very own home using the unique software! This is an incredible opportunity to decorate the home you love with images of the people you love most in the world.
Time to see your images.
About 3-4 weeks after your order appointment, your artwork will be ready for pick up. We’ll call you to make arrangements.
Your products will be beautifully packaged and ready for you to take home.
The best part of the entire experience is being able to showcase your beautiful images throughout your home! It is also a wonderful feeling knowing that you have purchased heirloom products that will stand the test of time and will be enjoyed for generations to come.
All your hard work has paid off!
