How This Whole Portrait Process Works
Day in the life sessions, families, seniors, headshots and more. I got you covered.
I have been known to make even the surliest teenagers crack up, wrangle toddlers like I was a rodeo clown and make the most awkward adults melt and love the experience with my easygoing, positive and magnetic energy. I capture those inside jokes and sly smiles by treating you like family. To get there, I’ve found that working together on your session is what makes the magic happen.
Let me help you share it with the world.
This conversation is crucial for me to see what you see when you look at your family, as well as mapping out exactly what you’re looking for in your session. Here’s where the homemade cookies come in while we talk about you and your vision, goals, personalities, clothes and every embarrassing family secret you want to share. I’ll show you samples of all the options- wall art, albums and gift prints- that could hang on your walls or display on your coffee table. I never tire of hearing your story and putting it into art. This pre consultation guarantees that you’ll get everything you want from my photos, and then some.
Alison invited us into her home, we didn’t just meet in a coffee shop, she had me at the cookies. We were surrounded by her artwork and personality. And I think that really says something special about her and her work ethics because not only was she not pulling samples out of some bag, she was sharing with us what she thought was good enough to put on her own walls. —Amanda
Your family, the stunning scenery of Crested Butte, and me. We’ll have so much fun that you forget you’re in a session. That’s exactly how I want you to feel. Picture a perfect summer day during the gorgeous golden hour right before sunset. The light is just right, the trees and birds come alive. This is when we find that invisible, exceptional, spectacular love that binds your family and put it into photos. Into art. Into time capsules and moments forever captured that you will pause at to admire often.
Viewing & Ordering Session
Perhaps the most valuable part of the experience that I offer, the ordering session is when you get to see all the images and decide which art you want to see in your home. You’ll see firsthand what your images look like on your own wall (provided you share an image with me). There’s no obligations to order anything, but with this process you get access to the fantastic printers I have been working with for years. Photos are best enjoyed in print so you can love your people out loud. It’s the next best thing to actually holding your fam in your arms.
The best part of the experience was the ordering session. Having your expertise in choosing was the best! Being able to go to your home and to look at all the photos in a setting where we were comfortable was amazing. —Phil and Beth
