What is the Process?

1. Reach out to us

We would love to hear more about you and tell you more about us. We look forward to hearing from you.
Give us a call at 989.205.4159, or go to our contact form to send a message.

2. meet with us

Prior to your portrait session, we will have you visit the studio where we will give you information about clothing choices, show you the wonderful products we have to offer, and get to know you before your session.

3. your portrait session

Please arrive at your location about 10 minutes prior to your session time. Weather delays and cancellations can happen. Be assured that we are watching the radar

and will make a decision at least an hour before your session time if we need to reschedule. We will contact you as soon as we make that call.

4. your order appointment

During this appointment, you will view a slideshow of your images. We will then walk you through choosing the images you love for the products you want. You will place your order at this appointment. Please make sure that all decision makers are available to join you for this appointment. Your order will be available for pickup approximately 3 weeks after your appointment. Some items such as albums may take a little longer due to the amount of retouching required. We will keep you updated.
