CELEBRATE THE ONES YOU LOVE with a photographic experience that will last a lifetime
Within every person, there is a story that deserves to be told.
We promise to tell the story of your love, life and relationships that you hold most dear.
You will be spending time not only WITH your family but AS a family.
Life can be busy, complicated, and stressful and it can be easy to get caught up in this and forget about what really matters.
We are here to help you remember the connections with the people that mean the most to you and capture the love and relationships there.
By taking you on an emotional journey, we will create beautiful works of art that you will absolutely love to display on your walls!
What are the sweetest moments of your day?
Is it the look in your child’s eyes or their face as it lights up when they see you coming home from work?
Or is it when your little one cuddles into you as you read them their bedroom story?
Or perhaps it’s the last kiss goodnight?
Together, we will celebrate those moments and help you experience them over and over again, every single day. We can’t wait to make you smile.
THE DISCOVERY EXPERIENCE - IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
There is always a reason why you want a portrait of someone you love, and the true reason is usually beneath the surface.
Your experience with us begins with diving into what you are truly longing to have captured in a portrait through fun conversations we call discovery calls!
We learn about you, those you want to include in your experience, and what makes them so special to you!
Does Susan love jumping off of things? Is riding in his toy car little Alex’s favorite thing to do? Do you just love the way your infant’s tiny feet fit in your hands? These are all things that translate into photographs that tell the story of your loved ones.
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 is it that makes her unique to YOU ‑ that special something that only you know and would love to hold on to forever?
If you are expecting right now, what is it that makes your pregnancy so special?
What made you fall in love with your partner in the first place?
We want to hear your story.
After we speak with you and find out what YOU would love to have, we customize your portrait session and start planning your artwork, artwork that will be a reminder of the beautiful things you have in life.
During your calls, we will also discuss customized artwork for your home. We know that each client’s needs are different and we tailor products specifically for your home, providing you with a personalized quote for your artwork.
DESIGN & STYLING EXPERIENCE
Because we want to make sure that the artwork we custom 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 – AND make sure they are the perfect size – as well as coordinating with your home décor. As part of that process, we’ll ask that you send an iPhone photo of any walls in your home where you would consider hanging your portraits.
In addition, 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 décor, 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!
THE PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE
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.
This personal photographic experience will capture the essence of who you and the people you love most are and turn them into meaningful portraits.
Sessions can be done indoors or outside and we generally block off 1.5 hours in our schedule.
THE ORDERING EXPERIENCE
This is the most exciting part! Now’s the time when you get to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the cinematic premiere of your portraits.
Our design consultant will work with you to design and create your perfect collection of favorite portraits and wall art.
Your collection will showcase you and your loved ones in your home (and maybe your office) as a visual reminder of what is most precious to you.
Don’t worry; we’ll have tissues on hand! It’s quite an emotional experience! Be ready to fall in love with your family all over again.
We help you finalize your artwork and place your order. We accept credit cards, cash, and checks for payment.
The first part of the journey is completed when you take possession of your custom luxury Artwork and display your portraits on your walls.
The journey continues each day as you experience your wall art as a reminder of the beautiful relationships in your life that you hold most dear.
DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION OF YOUR ARTWORK
Most of our clients prefer to have their portraits delivered and installed in their homes. About 4-6 weeks after your order has been placed, retouched and approved, your portraits you can choose to have your portraits delivered and installed in your home. This service eliminates the “a little to the left” fights between well-meaning husbands and micro-managing wives (or vice versa;). Let us handle the heavy lifting and hanging.
The cost of a custom portrait session and heirloom products is often referred to as an investment. This is because the photographs we take and artwork we create become increasingly valuable to the owner over time as each portrait portrays a family’s love, connection and personality.
Our services are for those that value quality artwork. An Ever After Portrait Original is made to be handed down for generations and becomes a showpiece in each family’s home.
If the size of your TV screen is larger than your family portraits, what message are you sending your children about what is truly important?
Sometimes society gives us permission to spend money on things that aren’t really VALUABLE…like $$$$ on a big screen …
In life, we will get moments where we get to chose to place our money into something of quality that shows everyone what we truly care about, what we feel is worth celebrating.
