Family Portraits 101
When you call or email us at DMP, we will spend time chatting with you to get a good idea of what you are looking for so we can offer you the best price possible. We will send you our price list, which describes our full line of our portrait services, as well as a clothing guide, and information on displaying your portraits. If you would like to come in for a consult, It’s helpful to bring any samples of photography/posing that have inspired you or given you ideas. Before your session, start thinking about what the end goal of the portrait session is. Is it a large traditional canvas portrait above the fireplace? A framed and matted piece over the sofa? Maybe something more modern, such as a wall collage, metal prints or an acrylic wall portrait? Or maybe a digital-style flush mount album or a coffee table style book? We have samples of all of those we will share with you. It is also extremely helpful to measure the wall space where you are visualizing your portrait, to give you an accurate idea of what size would look best in your space. Check out the link here to see some examples.
After the session, you are invited to stay and relax either in the studio or outside in our portrait park for about 20 mins while we download and prepare your images for viewing. We will then present a slideshow so you can see your images right after your session – no more waiting! We ask that you come prepared to place your order after your portrait session, so that we can start working on it ASAP + you don’t have to schedule another appointment to come back! Plan on about an hour to or so to go through the images, choose your favorites and place your order.
Don’t forget: ALL of our work is 100% guaranteed. If you are not happy with your session images, we will gladly redo your session or you get a full refund. The same goes with your portraits. If for some reason you are not happy, please let us fix the problem for you so you get just what you wanted!
