THE EVER AFTER EXPERIENCE


 

Life is meant to be celebrated!

The truly important things are the treasured moments of love and emotion that are the soul of your family.

Life is made up of a series of fleeting, but often magical, moments.

Those moments are right beside us.

Yet we are often too busy to truly look

and savor their captivating splendor.

Life can be busy, complicated and stressful

and it can be easy to get caught up in responsibilities

and forget about what really matters.

And then those moments pass, and the memories fade…

 

 CELEBRATING THOSE YOU LOVE AS FINE ART

 

 

We celebrate your loved ones and

help you experience those precious moments

over and over again, every single day.

We will guide you through a Fine Art Experience

that will rediscover the love you have

for those closest to you.

Meaningful, authentic portraits will then

live on the walls of your home.

We Are Going to Create an Experience You Will Never Forget!

LET’S GET STARTED!

We want to learn about you and your family. 

Let’s pick a time to speak on the phone and start your custom experience.

 

THE EXPERIENCE

 

 

DISCOVER

Creating meaningful artwork starts with discovering what you love about your family and what you would love to celebrate

 
What would it feel like if you, your partner, your family were captured through your eyes with everything YOU love about them??
What is it you absolutely adore about your little one right now?
What made you fall in love with your partner in the first place?
What is it that makes her unique to you – that special something that only you know and would love to hold on to forever?
What are the sweetest moments of your day?
Is it the look in your child’s eyes or her face as it lights up when she sees you coming home from work?  Or is it when your little one cuddles into you as you read him his favorite bedtime story?  Or perhaps it’s the last kiss goodnight?
Together, we will celebrate those moments by translating them into portraits so you can experience them over and over again, every single day.
The story of your loved ones will then live on your walls.
We want to discover your story.

DESIGN

Your family is unique – that’s why we tailor products specifically for you and your home.

We get iPhone photos of your walls
and overlay artpiece mockups to ensure
the perfect size of your finished artwork.

 

Because we want to make sure that the artwork
we design for you is perfect for your home,
we use a specialized design software.

 

We use it to create custom wall art mockups
to show you exactly how your finished artwork
will look on your walls

 

STYLE

For stress free portraits, we create clothing suggestions like a stylist does, based on your decor and lifestyle

We create custom clothing
and styling suggestions
based on your decor and lifestyle.

 

As part of our custom service,
we invite you to take advantage of
our visual styling clothing suggestions.

 

It’s like having your own personal stylist
who will look over your home decor,
discuss your color preferences,
and integrate them into a personal
and custom design guide for you
and your family
– guaranteed to take the stress out
of what to wear

PORTRAIT

We capture the essence of who you and the ones you love most are and turn them into meaningful portraits

After discovering what is important to you,
we celebrate everything
we have discovered about you and
your loved ones and craft the perfect portrait session.
Remember, this session is more than just taking photographs. 
It’s a celebration of your life and relationships…
whether it’s three crazy little boys full of life or
an older dog with a beautiful life to remember
or perhaps a mom with her daughter and best friend.
This session takes place in an enjoyable and relaxed environment
and is a lot of fun for everyone!  We take everything
we’ve learned about you and your loved ones
and we celebrate all those special things. 
Don’t worry about making everything perfect,
because it is in the imperfection we really find our true selves.

fences, bridge, wooded areas, grasslands, etc.
are continually updated –
oh, and unique props, such as couches
are just steps away too,
so your session can be

 TESTIMONIALS

 

 

 

Ever After is by far the leader when it comes to the latest photography techniques. I was married in 1999 and every time someone sees my album, they are amazed at how unique it is. Most recently we had family portraits taken and it amazes me how special the moments are that they capture. I smile every day when I walk past my family portraits on the wall! ~Andrea Bailey, Virginia
Once I scheduled my session, the magic started. Mindy & Joriana worked with me to figure out where I wanted to hang wall art and what various groupings of pictures would look like on various walls in my house, on the color schemes in my house so that the clothes would coordinate with it, and to plan clothing options that my daughters and I could wear. They had so many different wall art options; of course, canvas, but they also had amazing options with bamboo, metal, and glass. In addition to wall art, they created a beautiful photo book for me. It’s a work of art, too! ~Michelle Laino, Virginia
One of the things I loved about working with Mindy & Joriana was the custom nature of the products and how personal the service was. It was specialized and custom to fit my needs and desires. I didn’t want to just get one large single image; I loved so many of the images that I wanted a grouping to tell a story. They worked with me to choose images that complemented each other. I love enjoying the art on my walls every day. I look forward to being photographed again to document the next stage of my son’s life, hopefully with my parents. ~Deveney Shea Wall, Virginia
Mindy and Joriana carefully listened to what was important to us and fully captured our story! Our experience was more than we could have ever imagined and the Wall Art, wedding, maternity and newborn albums are breathtaking, and ours to enjoy every day on our walls and in our home. ~Donald & Tarsha Cavanaugh, Maryland

You Don't Feel The Moments In Your Life Are Worth Celebrating

We believe life is meant to be celebrated!
People often think of photographing the ‘big’ moments like weddings and anniversaries as a way to remember an event, or document history.
But the grand moments, the true stories of beauty and wonder often lie hidden in the quiet.
The most amazing moments in life are here…and then gone in a fleeting instant.

 

Hi, I’m Mindy.

My daughter, Joriana, and I are family portrait photographers based in Northern Virginia.

Family means EVERYTHING to us! The legacy of our family is the reason Joriana has a name that includes part of my name and part of both of her grandmothers’ names. The best part of our life is the love and connection we feel for those closest to us. It is those unspoken moments that are so important…but as life gets busy with responsibilities, it’s what we miss out on the most.
As a mom, each day has filled me with wonder, love and emotion, wanting nothing more than to press pause and hold time in my hand. Because time is the one thing we can never get more of, we work with families who want to keep this moment forever, because they know how quickly their children grow up.
Don’t miss another moment!  Start capturing Your Moments…Forever.

If you cherish your family, value fine art portraits and want your moments captured forever...
