Your Portrait Experience
A Deeper Connection
Your family portrait experience begins with a creative consultation that will give us an understanding of the special elements that make your family uniquely yours. By truly getting to know your family we’re able to help you distill what it is you want to capture during your family session and ensure that we create timeless images that truly capture the personalities and connections within your family.
Every session begins with a final product in mind. During your creative consultation we’ll help you plan how you’d like to display your portraits and design your session accordingly. From what colors to wear to where to hang your finished wall art, we are with you every step of the way to ensure that you love your images and your finished artwork.
Your session is thoughtfully planned and designed to be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. We know that every child is different and make sure to go at a pace that is comfortable for your family. We build in plenty of breaks and never impose a time limit. During your session Ariel and her assistant will take care of everything – especially making sure the kids are having fun – so that you can relax and reconnect with your family. Our clients constantly tell us that the session was surprisingly fun for them and a treasured time to slow down and enjoy their family.
Your session will be photographed in your home or at another location of your choosing. If you don’t have a spot in mind, please rest assured that we have many tried and true locations around Los Angeles and will help you find one that resonates with your family.
In-home Selection & Design
The very best bit of your experience comes about two weeks after your session with an exciting in-home slideshow (it’s okay to shed a tear or two while you watch).
After the slideshow Ariel will walk you through the process of sorting through your images and finalizing the design of your artwork. You’ll place your final order during this appointment and a few weeks later your artwork will be hand-delivered to you. Magic.
Your family portraits are more than just a snapshot. They are part of your family legacy. We know that the artwork you take home will be enjoyed by you for years to come, and passed down to your children 20 or 30 years from now.
We collaborate with the best craftspeople in the country to turn your portraits into works of art.
For the few hours we spend together, many more are spent by Ariel and her team – behind the scenes – perfecting your images, wall-art and albums. At the end of our time together you’ll have portraits that you can hold in your hands and hang on your walls, and enjoy for generations to come.
