Proper preparation is key to a successful portrait. After your portraits are installed, you’ll be happy you made the effort. Thoughtful consideration, both before the Consultation and before your Sitting will help provide for a stress-free experience and the perfect portrait for your family.
The Day of the Sitting
After weeks of planning and preparation, the day to create your portraits has finally arrived. Studio sittings are scheduled for either an hour or a half-hour, depending on the style. Location sittings are generally scheduled for up to two hours. We rarely use the entire time, and will do whatever it takes to ensure that we are both thrilled with the results. This will be a fun, memorable day for the entire family!
A few weeks after the sitting, we’ll meet again to present the images that we made on sitting day. You will see pre-selected images that we know you’ll love, and we’ll guide you in selecting your favorites. Because you will be placing your order at this appointment, it is extremely important that everyone who wishes to have input regarding image selection, budget and display be present. We normally schedule this appointment at the sitting so that both spouses can confirm the appointment. You can expect up to an hour and a half for this appointment.
Depending on the scope of your order, between 6 and 15 weeks after the Order Appointment, we will deliver and install your new framed wall portraits in your home. This is our favorite part of the process! The look of joy and excitement on your faces as we present your family with its newest heirloom is priceless.
