This Brannan Family Portrait Session was photographed in the gardens of our Richmond, VA studio. We met Melissa while photographing her sister’s wedding this fall. We were delighted when she made the decision to have us create an oil portrait of her granddaughters and her dog Henry for the holidays. She also wanted to use an image for her Christmas cards. The idea was to have some fun candid shots in one outfit playing with Henry, a holiday outfit, and then one outfit for the main oil portrait. We choose the red dresses for the oil pose, barefoot with Henry with a neutral green background to compliment Melissa’s existing portraits she has collected over the years.

The session was a blast, Ollie stole the show with her personality and spunk. Henry was not far behind and the mix made of one fabulous session. Ainsley was a collection of poise and grace in front of the camera. 

We started with the girls on our famous brick pathway and created the most amazing shots of them both individually and together. Once they were warmed up we quickly moved onto the main pose, seated with perfect smiles, but very natural, and a perfect Henry between them. After we completed the main portrait pose we included Melissa and Scott, even one of Scott and just the girls. Then we photographed Henry alone and then had the girls change clothes and finished the session with fun candids running around and playing with Henry.

We are so thankful that Melissa made the decision to document and preserve this moment in time. These are memories the whole family will treasure for years to come.

Nyman Family Portrait Session

Nyman Family Portrait Session

Family portrait sessions are such an incredible way to create lasting memories. This Nyman Family Portrait Session is no exception. Joy knew it was time to document this special time in their lives. She understood that a family portrait was the perfect way to create a gift that her family would treasure forever. 

The Process

First, we began the process by visiting their home. This helps us get a sense of their lifestyle and allows us to choose a color and style palette that will coordinate with what they already have in their home. During this visit, we also helped the family select the perfect location for the two oil portraits they wanted for the session. We knew a more formal portrait would fit perfectly in their family room. Then we chose a space downstairs that would work for a more modern portrait. This image would be a black and white oil painting on acrylic to compliment the space.

We envisioned the color palette for the more formal Renaissance portrait to be a variety of medium to dark blues with white or gold accents. This was the perfect pairing with the lush greenery and tall leather armchair that served as the perfect prop for this shoot. A totally different mood and feeling would be created in the second oil portrait that would hang downstairs in their man cave.

The session began in the gardens of our Richmond, Virginia studio. The family was at ease in front of the camera and some of the more relaxed shots were Joy’s favorites. While these images might not end up on the wall, they will be treasured in their Folio Box along with their other favorite candids and extra individual poses. Once we captured what we needed outside we transitioned to the studio where we photographed the perfect shot to use for their Black & White Relationship portrait. 

Ready to book a Session?

Each and every image we captured will serve as a memory for this special time in Nyman’s life. If you are interested in scheduling a session for your family, please contact Mary today. Also, family portraits make for perfect holiday gifts. Give us a call today.
