People ask us all the time, “What is the big deal about custom photography?” First off, let’s just say that custom photography is not for everyone. It can seem a little intimidating and maybe seems expensive to some people. But if you are looking for something that is beautiful, unique and will be proudly displayed in your home for a long time, then custom photography can be perfect.
We do not believe in a cookie cutter approach, which is why we do not offer “Mini Sessions” or factory assembly line photos or fully retouched high resolution photos on disk for a $200 session fee. We do not want to photograph ten families in one day against the same set like chain photographers. What we want to provide is an experience unique to you. We want to get to know you. We want to provide your family with products you will cherish 20 years from now and that you will be proud to display in your home. We want to help you choose the product that is right for your family and your lifestyle. We want your kids to fight over who inherits the family portraits. That will probably not happen if you only allot 15 minutes of time and effort in your family portraits. And a disk or flash drive will not only become obsolete, it will also never be proudly displayed in your home.
