Having portraits of your child hanging on the wall is important because it creates a sense of warmth, love, and connection in your home. It serves as a constant reminder of the love and joy that your child brings to your life.
Portraits can also boost your child’s self-esteem and confidence, as they feel valued and appreciated. In addition, having portraits on the wall can create a sense of family identity and pride, as it shows the world that your child is an important and cherished member of your family.
Milestone portraits are one of my favorite pieces to create. I recommend 5 years old, tweens from 9-12 and their senior year portraits. This series moves through different stages of their childhood to young adult. Milestone portraits displayed on the wall become a reminder of these precious moments in your child’s that are prized heirloom pieces.
How this works
Starting with the end in mind for your child’s portraits, I will work with you to plan how your images will be displayed in your home. This allows me to collaborate with you to tailor your portrait session to your specific needs. By considering where and how your images will be seen, you can create a cohesive and meaningful collection that tells your family’s story.
You may want an iconic image to hang on one of your walls or a collection of smaller images that will hang together to fill a larger wall space. We can work together to create a wall that makes a statement.
Incorporating older images with new ones is also a great way to create a family gallery that tells a complete story. By combining images from different times, you can see how your family has grown and changed over the years.
Creating a custom-designed album is another wonderful option for those who may not have a lot of wall space or who are moving soon. A luxurious album allows you to preserve the photos in a beautiful and tangible way that can be cherished for years to come.
The Design Consultation
Working with me as your guide during our design consultation, will ensure that your child’s portraits serve a purpose and are not just a random collection of images or pictures sitting on a drive in a drawer after sharing a few images on social media. If you are looking for a fully tailored experience that includes design, clothing consultation and installation of your wall art, then let’s begin the process together!
Our process for creating your child’s portraits begins with a Design Consultation, where we take the time to learn about your child. Understanding their personalities and dynamics is key to capturing their unique qualities in the photos. We are happy to answer any questions you may have during the consultation, including which clothing looks best in photographs, the investment required, and the most suitable areas of your home for displaying the portraits. Additionally, we welcome any questions about your portrait session.
What to Wear
After your Design Consultation, you’ll have a clear idea of the outfits that will look great for your child’s portrait session as we collaborate to design the look of your child’s wardrobe. We are available to consult with you about these outfits via phone, email, or Zoom meetings in the time leading up to your Portrait Session. We will work together to finalize your outfits at least one week before your scheduled session, giving us plenty of time to make any last-minute changes.
The day of your Portrait Session
If you’ve had your child photographed before, you may recall how even the slightest thing could cause stress. Your child may be fussy from not napping or waking up in a bad mood. But don’t worry. Ann understands how to handle mischievous behavior from kids at every stage of development after 14 years photographing children. If you can just get them dressed and to the studio, we’ll take care of the rest. By the time the session is over, everyone is sure to have had a blast!
Viewing and Ordering Session
Your Viewing and Order appointment will take place about a week after your photo shoot at our studio. This appointment is crucial as it’s the time when you’ll make final decisions on your portrait order. We highly recommend scheduling a time that works for both parents.
With our advanced software and pictures of your home’s walls, we can display your portraits scaled to the appropriate size. This ensures that your portraits will fit perfectly and won’t be too big or too small.
We’ll be with you every step of the way, using your initial goals from the consultation to help you achieve the exact look and feel you want for your family portraits.
