Don't Forget to Go Big!
What's the biggest size family portrait you have in your home? Can you image having a portrait that's so big it's almost as tall as you? Those type of family pictures are called an impact portrait.
For some reason, we have become condition to having 8x10 family pictures and thinking the best size to have and display in our home. However, that's not always true. You'll want to have portraits on the wall that are perfectly sized for the space it's going in. Can you guess the size of this portrait?
Yes, it's an impact portrait that will be the centerpiece of any room.
Accordion Book for Birthday Celebration
Your birthday is a great opportunity to have a portrait session to celebrate your birthday. Earlier this year Blossom contacted me regarding photographing her for her 21st birthday portraits. We discussed the desired location for her portrait session as well as her wardrobe based on her portrait location.
We met at Malaga Cove Plaza for Blossom's portraits. We took many amazing portraits, that Blossom had a difficult time selecting the best portraits for her accordion book.
Beautiful Family Picture Keepsake
Have you hired a professional family photographer recently? If so, how are you enjoying those family pictures? Did you have intentions to have your family pictures printed, but time got the best of your schedule and they were never printed?
I understand...life happens. My portrait studio exists to help the busy family create beautiful family imagery to display the people you love most. I'm here to help you. I begin with the end in mind; meaning I want to learn about your family and how you would like to enjoy your portraits. One of the most popular products clients tend to gravitate to are the Story Boxes (pictured below - 11x14 Window Story Box). As you can see, these boxes are luxurious and gorgeous. They would make for a beautiful display piece in your family's living or family room.
Museum Quality Framed Canvas
My clients know me for luxury products. For the last few months, I've been looking for a luxurious canvas vendor since my previous vendor stop offering them. So I asked several of my fellow photographers who they used and I kept getting a resounding answer.
So I decided to give this new vendor a try and I can say I am extremely excited and impressed with the quality of their work and know you will be ecstatic to have this canvas displaying in your house. The outcome is a wonderful piece of art and it's breathtaking.
The picture above is what's used to make the handcrafted framed canvas in the video below.
Beautiful Story Box
Oh yes! I love this Story Box and so do many of my family clients. It's no secret, I'm a hug advocate of family's printing their pictures. We have countless pictures stored on our smartphones and computers, but how many of you can say you have a gorgeous collections or prints of the people you love?
Accordion Books for Red Dress Portraits
When it time to deliver products (such as albums, wall art, and more) to my photography clients, I get super excited. I'm mean really excited! Receiving products from my studio is similar to visiting a luxury boutique store. In addition, I look forward to seeing my clients expressions and many times the tears of joy many moms and dad show after they see the pictures of themselves as well as their family.
Black Leather Promotion Album - Stull
Having your promotion ceremonies at The National Archives Museum is an amazing venue but once you have your digital images, the next step is determining how you would like to remember those memories. A luxurious leather album is a great choice. This black leather album was designed for Colonel Stull and his family. The leather is soft to the touch and is exquisite.
Gray Velvet Album
It's time to do away with the traditional boring album. Are you always looking for ideas for family pictures and how to store and showcase them? Well this album is a great way to store your family pictures for Christmas or any family portraits.
As a family photographer, I am thrilled to share this new album with you and the families that trust me to photograph their pictures. This Velvet album is luxurious and gorgeous. It is one of the most recent album additions to Tamieka Smith Photography product line. I can't sing the praises of this album enough. Once you see and touch it you'll understand why.
Touching this album, you'll become memorized by the softness and smoothness.
As a military member serving in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, there are so many beautiful locations/venues for a military ceremony. In addition, it’s easy to forget these great memories that will be photographed and captured during your promotion or retirement ceremony; especially when the pictures are locked away on your laptop, smartphone or social media.
“I just want the digital files” …that’s an email I recently received. Unfortunately, many photographers here these words more often than we care to admit. However, printing your military ceremony pictures and hanging them in your home, you’ll be able to see, enjoy, and remember them every day.
Roll out the red carpet, the new Reveal Box is here!
