Your experience starts with consultation going over the process, addressing all of your concerns about the session, pricing, discussing and choosing the artwork for you. It is the time we find out all about your family so you feel comfortable and excited about your portrait session! All this is done either in person consultation, over the phone or Skype.
Now you get to relax, smile, laugh and enjoy the process. My family sessions are usually at beautiful Alaskan settings like mountains, forests, and beaches. All the details and preparations that were made prior are now put into action. I will guide you through the posing, will find the best lighting and artfully create your beautiful portraits. A tip for parents: during a session, it is not a good time to raise moral human beings, let the kids play, have fun - it is the best way to capture their personalities and get the most smiles out of them.
PERSONAL PREMIERE and ORDERING SESSION
This is a fun part. In about a week or less, after your portrait session, we get to meet again and this is where you get to see and experience your photographs. During our meeting, I will show you a slideshow of your photographs and with my guidance, I'll help you choose the perfect photographs for your art pieces. This is the time when the portrait order is placed.
Approximately 4-6 weeks after your ordering session I will hand-deliver your portraits if you are within 20 miles from studio. For others, after inspecting your art for quality I will ship it to your home address. You will smile every day as you get to see your family as an art piece in your home!
THE IMPORTANCE OF PRINTS
In the last decade our most precious memories have been mostly lost in the digital world, whether it’s social media, smartphones or hard drives tucked away. I believe life belongs in a print. It is important to think what legacy do we want to build for our family and loved ones. Think of the thousands of photos on your smart phone. How many of those will your children, grandchildren and one day great-grandchildren actually see?
Rawsome photography guides you on different ways to display your portraits for the years to come. Whether it will be a museum quality canvas that you see on the wall as a daily affirmation, a story box filled with archival quality prints, or an album that sits on your end table allowing you to browse through these memories any time you wish, the options are endless and as unique as you are.
HOW WILL YOU BUILD YOUR FAMILY’s PHOTOGRAPHIC LEGACY?
I specialize in timeless, heirloom quality finished artwork that will allow you to enjoy your portraits for generations to come. I would love to help you choose these items so you get the most out of your investment.
How will you show your children the journey of your life? The photographs that will be captured today will one day become the most important thing your family will ever own. Documenting your legacy is one of the greatest gifts you can ever give them.
