Signature Artist Series #1 - Perfect Portraits

Cari Hague

Introducing the first of our new session line, Signature Artist Series - Perfect Portraits.


New Sets

We are making the most of our cozy north light indoor studio before we can head outside for the year.  We have several new backdrops: one I custom painted, one Jackie sewed out of a favorite toile fabric, and we purchased a few that we had to have including the one inspired by the Victoria, so we know one of these styles will be right up your alley!


Mother's Day Gifts

These “Perfect Portraits” would make a great Mother’s Day gift.  They are great for an older kiddo’s update if you haven’t had them professionally captured since they were a baby.  It would also be a fun treat just for you - to really get a great professional portrait of in your best light - celebrate this perfect moment in your life!  You could also use this if you have an upcoming senior who is a minimalist and really only wants one simple quality set to represent their milestone.

2018 UPDATE - New Item Info

Olson2017-119edit 2.jpg

The weather today is looking better! My poor plants are popping up and keep getting snow covered so surely spring will get here soon? It is always a great time of year to take a look and freshen things up a bit and we did just that with our JP sessions, product menu, and website.

After some much appreciated feedback, we listened and made some session upgrades.
1. Custom Designer Sessions
2. Signature Artist Series

Custom Designer Sessions

Custom Designer Sessions are our traditionally custom sessions with a few updates. They start with a phone consultation, take a $300 deposit to book your date, can be at the indoor/outdoor JP studio or on location, can be any type of session like seniors, family portraits, engagements, maternity, newborns, etc. You wanted these packages to be completely custom but simple so now you just select two items off the NEW Featured Product Menu and it makes your package. The price of those two items makes your all-inclusive base package price which includes your session fees, retouching/finishing fees, a custom mobile app, a beautiful video slideshow (tear-jerker), and images posted in an online gallery where you can order gift prints and more.

NEW Signature Artist Series

NEW Signature Artist Series sessions are for those of you who asked for our expert creativity to be super accessible - aka treat you like I do my sister. Throughout the year, we will offer groups of limited edition sessions that are what we are inspired by at the moment - what we are doing for our own families because it is what is fun or what they should do. We make it easy and just tell them what they need to do, what to wear, where to be, and what awesome finished product they need of the images when it is done. So you asked for this “share with you our personal artistic inspiration but keep it simple” deal and here it is. Although, I’d love to have you all as family, I can only manage so many of these “special” sessions so that I remember to save some time to fit in my own kids for these. Therefore, they will be limited edition sessions. They will include a finished product that will be announced with each series announcement. They will also include an online gallery to order from and mobile app to share. The announcements will go to our VIP email list first (so be sure you are subscribed) then will be posted to our facebook page and will be first come first serve for openings. The first series will be coming very soon so keep an eye out!

Whew! That was a lot of info but we have been so excited to share this all with you. Please let me know if you have questions and as always we really do appreciate your feedback.

Looking forward to seeing you all sometime this year!
