There is something special happening in your life – whether it is a graduating high school senior, a new baby, a growing business, or kids that are changing faster than you can keep track. You dream of beautiful photographs and video stories that will help you remember the best parts of this time. That’s why you’re here. We want that for you too.

We offer a a personalized photography and videography experience with two goals: to take care of you like you are the only client we have and for you to be thrilled to tears.  

Together with you we will create beautiful artwork of this fleeting time. We will laugh with you, celebrate with you, and get to know you so your photographs and video reflect who you are. Many have said the experience of working together becomes a special memory in itself. We can’t wait to meet you, and expand our family a little more.

Planning Meeting

Creativity starts here! Our portraits and video stories have personality because we always start with getting to know you face to face. Your images should tell a story about who you are whether you are a high school senior, a new family, or a small business. 

Your planning meeting is also a time to view our product suite, think through what artwork you’re most attracted to, and make sure our studio is a good fit for your needs. Your planning meeting has no cost and no obligation and you can expect that we will check in with you before signing contracts or selecting dates to be sure you are ready to move forward.

 

Design Meeting

Small tweaks to clothing style and textures can completely transform a photograph or video and we know what works. The clothing and artwork design meeting is held at your home so together we can select the clothes that will make you look and feel your best. Don’t worry, we have worked with clients of every age and body type and know how to select pieces that are flattering and timeless.

Not sure where to put the artwork from your session? And what size?  And type?  Even if your style is more impulse-buy-from-Target than hired-an-interior-designer we’ve got you covered. We will photograph your walls so that we can create mockups of your artwork, to scale, as it will appear in your home.

You can wake up the day of your session knowing what to wear, what to bring, where we are going, and how much fun we are going to have. Our creative team has a plan for your session already in mind because we know that preparation leads to our best creativity. 

LOCATIONS

Our exclusive and undiscovered locations are one of the unique services we provide.  In addition to all the secluded spots and hidden gems in our local area we also have:

Our Downtown Cary Portrait Studio – Well-appointed for modern studio portraiture.

Our Private Photography Farm – Wildflowers and sunflowers in the Spring and corn in the Fall.

Our Wet Set – A waterfall set for splashing, swinging, flexing, dancing, or just about any explosive movement.

Most of our sessions include multiple locations.

THE SESSION

You don’t need to know where to put your hands, how to smile, or what looks flattering for you, that is our job. Our casual, but directed posing shows everyone at their best in a way that is candid, not forced. We will be chatting away, laughing, and encouraging you so much you won’t have time to hear the anxieties in your head. 

Newborns and small children will feel right at home in our kid-friendly studio where photographer Aurora takes over and mom and dad get to relax.

The most common thing we hear? It went by faster than you could ever imagine.

Your reveal and ordering appointment is an exciting time of celebration and we do it big! Bring your family together at our photography studio in Downtown Cary where you will see a breathtaking wall of your portraits and a big screen version of your video. Printed and matted so you can touch, hold, sort, and wow over the portraits we created together our gallery wall holds 40 – 60 portrait originals. Are you ready for your behind the scenes video?  Watch your story come to life in video with a soundtrack that we selected the day we met you.

(The tissues are under the table if you need them.)

Take comfort in your choices, knowing we have taken the guesswork out of everything. Using images from our design meeting, you will view wall artwork to scale, on the walls of your home, in different mediums and sizes based on your preferences – individual and groupings, framed and canvas, painted and photographic. If you’re considering an album or storybox, our album wall holds exactly the right number of images so you can pull your favorites from the gallery wall and start visualizing your album coming together.

We are here to carefully guide you through making decisions about how you want to enjoy your photographs. We respect your budget and your tastes and use this as a time to make sure you have everything that you want, and nothing that you don’t.

We promise you will be thrilled to tears.
