Custom photography: an investment in the present for the future. Custom photography is more of a luxury product than your entry level cookie cutter photography chain store experience. Custom photography truly is not for everyone, it requires a level of commitment, investment in time and money, forethought and planning on the part of the subject/client and requires a larger time commitment for the photographer as well.
Clients who enjoy taking a more active role in the creation of their families’ memories have the desire to have portrait art that is truly personalized. These more discerning clients have been known to budget and allot time for a custom photography session. Many clients opt for it to be a once a year special experience, some opt to have custom photography sessions done to record their child’s stages in life. Having said this, it is clear that custom photography is not in everyone’s budget, it is something that most families save for to splurge on from time to time to memorialize their children as they really are (not posed and primped in the cookie cutter studio setting).
We got a big one this past weekend in Woodbridge, Virginia! I have been wanting a big snow and boy did we get it. About 30 inches of snow. If you're interested in capturing your family with a stunning snow backdrop, it's a perfect time to schedule a session.
Schedule your session by visiting our appointment page or by calling the studio at 571-250-5073.
As a Northern Virginia Family Photographer, I realize one of the hardest things to do after scheduling a portrait session is determining what everyone should wear. It can be a pain stacking task to determine colors, should the clothes be new or should it be somethings that's already owned. I'm getting tired just thinking about it!
We all know how time consuming it can be, so I have designed a great clothing guide. It give different color palettes. This will help show what colors work best with each other.
