learn about the process

Each portrait of your family at this moment in time will capture the memory of “what they were like when”. These are moments you do not want to forget. They are amazing and wonderful. 

How will you remember?

the details

Are you worried about making sure you love your pictures? Before any session, we create a plan for how they will be displayed in your home. Will it be a beautiful museum quality framed canvas of your newborn that makes you smile? Or an heirloom leather album with your crazy toddler and their older sibling just being themselves that you can look through over and over? Creating a plan and shooting for that plan results in a session that creates your heirloom. The entire portrait process takes place in several different meetings with us. And don't worry if you're not local...we can use Zoom as well! The Pre-Session Consultation, the Shoot, your Reveal & Ordering Appointment, and Delivery. It's all included.

initial meeting

"So, How Do You Want To Display Your Images?" This is always the first question and gives us a direction. Knowing the answer helps us create a plan for your session, capture it in the best possible way, and create images you will love forever and ever.

Show me where you'd like to see your images! We'll ask you to take pictures of your walls or give me a virtual tour so we can shoot your session with the end goal in mind. Your style is important and we want your family's artwork to match! 

Do you love albums? We will plan for that too! And if you love both...well, we think that's amazing! The gift to your children you create with your session artwork is one that is priceless. 

We love when you come to the Always Images Studio to  see and touch many of the different products we offer.

Pre-Session ConsulT

Does picking out what you should wear scare you? Don't worry...we love helping design a session to match your home and clothing is a part of that! Our session stylist resource can help use your own wardrobe or make recommendations for purchases to help tie your shoot together. We are all about offering services to make this an amazing and non-stressful process! 

Do you want your hair and make-up done? We can help you coordinate it too! 

prepping for your shoot

We'll pick a place and time perfect for your needs! Come ready to relax and have fun! 

If you're a new parent, be ready to take a rest as we soothe your newborn into a deep sleep and capture the features of the tiniest member of your family. Becky and her assistant will have everything taken care of so you can take a little break!

For Families and Culver Academies students, be ready to go, go, go! Our goal is to help you remember this season in life when you look back on it for years to come! 

your session day

The most exciting part of any session is the images reveal appointment where you'll come to the Always Images studio where you will be presented with a slideshow of your images on our 75” 4k HDR TV screen. During this time, we will help you narrow down the choices to your favorites with specialty software and select the images to design your custom art piece and portrait collection. We will show you the actual size of enlarged images on your own walls and create custom artwork for your home to treasure for years to come.

Your Family. Your Home. Your Love.  

We’ll help make it all come together on your walls.

the process

Did you know that the lifespan of a USB drive is only ten years? Have you ever had a computer hard drive die and lose everything?

But...do you still have those photographic prints from your grandparents and great grandparents? Did you know the life of an archival print is at least 100 years? We want your family's art to be around for generations!

Why Fine Art? 

*Do you want to create a legacy heirloom for your baby, little one, family or Culver student?  This is perfect for you!!!

Legacy Story Sessions includes multiple sessions and could be Newborn and first year, a growing family series or your child's time at the Culver Academies.

"Children are not things to be molded, but people to be unfolded."
