My mission as a portrait photographer is to not only create beautiful portraits, but for my clients to leave my studio with tangible, professional, heirloom quality products to showcase their images. Each client I work with is unique and has a different vision for their portraits, and together we will make that vision come to life.
Here is a summary of OBP’s full service portrait experience.
After you have contacted me to inquire about a portrait session with OBP, I will invite you to the studio for an in-person consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other, chat about your vision for your portraits, discuss locations (for sessions other than newborn), wardrobe, session details, color palettes, and go over OBP’s product line so you can see and touch our gorgeous products in person. This will also allow us an opportunity to talk about your vision for displaying your images after the portrait session. This meeting usually lasts about an hour.
Portrait day is here! Newborn sessions are held in my portrait studio located in downtown Winters. It’s conveniently located in the heart of our beautiful downtown and in close walking distance to many great restaurants. Newborn sessions can last up to 4 hours depending on the baby, so dress comfortable and make yourself at home while I cuddle, calm and pose your beautiful new baby!
For all other sessions (maternity, family, older infant, children, seniors), the portrait session will take place outdoors at the location of choice, starting about 2 hours before sunset for that dreamy dusk light. I want my portrait sessions to be relaxed, fun and never rushed. I will guide you on posing, and help you to feel confident in front of my camera.
THE VIEWING AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT
This is personally my favorite part of the experience: I get to show you your beautiful images, and together we will design and customize the perfect way for you to display them as art in your home! About 2-3 weeks after the portrait session, I will invite you back to the studio to view your images togehter and select the products you can’t live without. If you decide you’d like wall art, we can create the perfect display together with my software that will show you exactly how your wall art will look on your walls before you purchase. Because every client’s preferences and needs are different, instead of set packages I offer a highly customizable ordering process where you Create Your Own Collection. The beauty of this system is that you only have to purchase the products you love. OBP’s product line consists of beautiful hand-stretched canvases, gorgeous leather albums, museum grade frames, and hand-crafted keepsake boxes as well as digital files. Whether your style is contemporary or farmhouse chic, we have products to harmonize with every decor style. This appointment usually takes between one to two hours.
Depending on the products you have ordered, and your location, we will either hand deliver your products, mail them, or set up a time at the studio for you to come and pick up your order. You will now have tangible products of your beautiful portraits to show off to your friends and family.
