This Ellis Family Oil Portrait Session turned out beautifully. Kristine and Keith wanted a lasting memory to compliment Abby’s grandmother’s painting that now hangs in their living room. Recently Keith inherited several pieces of his family’s visual history in the form of paintings and photographs. At seven years old, this was the perfect time to bring Abby’s oil portrait to life. 

Kristine commissioned Christie, from Elizabeth Layne Heirloom, to make dresses for both girls. The attention to detail was outstanding. The dresses were perfect for Abby’s oil portrait and a few additional shots of her with her three-year-old sister, Katie. 

Abby was excited to be photographed in her new dress and Katie shared that enthusiasm. We choose to begin the session with a few full-length poses on our famous brick pathway. These shots included the girls together and each of them separately. We also allowed time for some candid shots of the girls dancing with each other.

Then we moved on to Abby by herself in a ¾-length posture that was similar to her grandmother’s. Our little white stone bench was the perfect height for her legs, allowing them to gently slope downward giving movement and balance to the lower part of the pose which Kristine and Keith ended up selecting for the oil painting. The rest of the images would be displayed in a Folio box that included their favorite poses. After selecting the perfect frame for Abby’s portrait, we saved a matching frame for Katie’s oil which will eventually hang beside Abby’s.

We had so much fun painting this oil, adding warm golden colors to the foliage and the highlights in her dress. The lace details and Abby’s long beautiful hair were highlighted with a touch of warm paint colors too to complete the color harmony of the overall portrait. This created the mood and feeling we had intended from the beginning.

The expression on Kristine’s face said it all when the family came back into the studio to see the final results. It filled Kristines’s heart with so much joy, for we had captured the exact expression and moment in time that she had envisioned.

Another perfect amazing oil painting was delivered and installed for a deserving and loving family. We can’t wait for Kaite’s session to see how we will complete the Ellis family’s girls’ record of life.

This Couillard Sibling Portrait Session was so much fun! Amy brought her two children to our studio for this black and white sports session. It was a perfect time to capture images of Vivian who was 12 and Thalle who was 10. Our focus was to document their favorite past times but while in the studio we also took a few black and white images of them individually and together. 

Their activities were perfect for this black-and-white project. Thalle’s love of video games inspired us to create a gamer mood, while we highlighted Vivian’s passion for competitive cheering. They both love rock climbing, so we had them gear up and pose both individually and together for a few shots. We also couldn’t leave out their love for the beach so we got a few shots that represented that as well. 

Each outfit change allowed up the opportunity to capture just a little more of their personality. There were so many great images that Amy had a hard time narrowing down her favorite images to be matted and framed. In the end, the image of them showing their love for each other won out as the large portrait to display on their wall at home. We also framed a beautiful collection of images from their sports poses. 

The time spent in the studio and the beautiful images have created memories that will stay with the family for years to come. Looking at the final product and seeing our client’s faces makes us so appreciative of the job we get to do every day. Give Mary a call today to set up your family session!

The final product!

This Gregor Senior Portrait Session turned out great. Jenny contacted us to photograph her daughter’s high school senior portraits. We were excited to capture this special moment for Sarah Jane before she headed off to college. Having the perfect image for your last high school yearbook and photographs to remember this special time, is the perfect way to document this momentous occasion. 

Sarah Jane’s session included not only her traditional yearbook drape but also a few of her favorite outfits that allowed her personality to shine. You cannot go wrong with a classic white top and jeans. This look never goes out of style and looks great on everyone. We especially loved how the lush green textures and foliage contrasted with Sarah’s white top. One of our most popular garden areas is the long weathered wood fence. This helped create a dynamic yet comfortable background for a few of our shots. We then moved on to her red, black, and gray dress which was super stylish and allowed her to really relax and shine in front of the camera. 

She was so easy to work with and allowed us the opportunity to create beautiful images that they will remember forever. Sarah Jane is ready to start the next chapter in her life and she now has this special time documented so can remember her senior year for years to come.
